Tomas Gustavsson
is a university lecturer at Karlstad University and a consultant within project management, IT and leadership issues. Starting out as a software programmer in 1996, he was offered a job as an IT project manager after only one year in the industry. Since then, project management has always been in focus in Tomas’ career. In 2002, he heard of something called “agile ways of working” which contained smart tools and efficient methods that he whole-heartedly embraced.

Tomas has written several books in Swedish such as the book "Agile – konsten att slutföra projekt” (Agile - the art of completing projects) which in 2008 won the Project management book of the year award awarded by the Swedish IPMA-branch.

Tomas has published articles describing the use of agile methods in other contexts than IT, such as event projects and hardware product development. He can be contacted at
