Copy of About Us At Conscires Agile Practices

Bachan Anand  Vanessa Schmidt Sacha Bollinger

We have a vision of  building successful organizations through empowering people and through lightweight processes. Our team members have a depth of experience in the field of Information Technology, ranging from Consulting, System Architecture, Development Leadership to Agile Leadership, with vast experience in finance, insurance, mortgage, and offshore consulting.

Our passion for making a difference and belief that Agile Principles can bring about positive differences in any organization led us to start Conscires Agile Practices, an organization that will transform workplaces by empowering individuals at all levels by having transparency when it comes to organization successes and challenges.

We believe that Agile Principles, such as  providing utmost business values,  self organization, team empowerment, collaboration, and continual improvement, if applied with a clear vision and purpose, can make a huge difference in any type of organization.

This is behind the motto of our organization – Agile, By Choice, With a Purpose.

We also practice Agile outside of IT and we practice Agile values in running our business, and in the near future, in helping non-profit organizations.

It’s not the number of things you do, but the quality,
the efficiency of each separate action and task that count.

– Lead the Field, Earl Nightingale


Conscires’ mission is to create transparent and collaborative organizations where employees are empowered to make their own decisions and take ownership for their work. This environment will improve the overall morale of the company and boost productivity. It starts with coaching the managers to become better leaders and reducing the noise that causes competing priorities and distractions to allow these leaders to set clear goals that can easily be followed by the team.

Conscires’ philanthropic core reaches out to the community, creating a free space for Entrepreneurs to meet, hosting events within the Agile Community, and offering variable pricing depending on each person’s or company’s circumstance.

Conscires plans to create such work environments by spreading Agile/Scrum Methodology to individuals and companies through Scrum training, coaching, providing company assessments, and consulting.


To transform organizations through collaboration
within and between organizations.


Building successful organizations through empowering people
and lightweight process.


We are passionate about making a positive difference in individuals by giving space for their creativity to be expressed and nurturing people to live their passion to build successful organizations.
