ASYM APS – Coaching and Training on Software Quality and Testing

I coach and train people working with software testing, quality and safety of complex IT systems. I see software testing as central improving and assuring Qualty and Safety of systems. Leadership, continous learning, and sustained development are the values in what I do. In my daily life I work as a Test Manager in KMD, an NEC company. I coach and train on the side.

I founded ASYM APS in 2003. The name of the company is the four first letters of the word asymmetric. APS designates ASYM as a private limited company.

Symmetry is a mathematical property of beauty. In our imagination, universally beautiful objevts like leaves on trees are highly symmetric. Looking closer, however, the symmetry turns out to be an illusion. It is our experience that learning can take place through realized asymmetries like this. Illusions which are proven wrong are important signs of risks and potential failure, but also of possible innovations.

Edsger. W. Dijkstra once said about programming that “Beauty is our business”. The four letters A-S-Y-M reminds me that while programming and delivering systems includes a strive for perfection, making systems valuable for real peopel requires pragmatism. Quality is in its very essence pramatic.
