Great Innovation comes from great teams. Not from ideas on sticky notes.

Success comes from effectively motivating and empowering teams. The combination of Agile and Innovation Management has proven to accelerate both company growth and organizational agility. Is your interest piqued? Let’s discuss the added value of Agile Growth for you and your teams!
About Anton Vanhoucke
Anton has experience with successful innovation. He brings a different mindset and a strong customer orientation to the team. Anton’s expertise in digital media and communication reinforces the team’s success. He has always been fascinated by one central question:
Why do people do what they do?
This question is interesting on many levels. It has to do with team performance because some routines are more productive than others.

Anton’s motivation is to help people rise above themselves. Personal growth makes everyone happier and more productive in teams. A positive impact on the world is an essential part of this. That’s why Anton carefully chooses his clients.
