Today's guest is Patrik Olofsson.
Some of you might already know him as he was a speaker at our Workpath Quarterly in June and also as a guest at our OKR Forum in Amsterdam.
He is a certified Scrum Master, and he is Chapter Lead and Vice President, leading the Agile Coaches at INGKA which is a part of the IKEA Group.

He provides new approaches and new ways of working that have brought increased efficiency and profitability to the companies he worked with.
