Bakkenist works together with clients to realise their ambitions and achieve sustainable results.
We add value to your process, project or organisation. An important and distinctive characteristic of Bakkenist is that we view management and consultancy as interconnected disciplines. We strive to actively work together with you and your people whenever possible. In order to offer you optimal support, we are always committed to further develop and optimise our services and expand our knowledge.
We are entrepreneurial knowledge workers and professionals. We feel right at home in an environment where we share in the responsibilities. Our cooperation is characterised by our respect for each other’s qualities and the stimulation of professional and personal development. Bakkenist has given substance to these ideals in a tightly knit and professionally organised business with a strong identity.

Simply good We focus on results, we are clear in our formulation of these results and our methods are transparent. We are critical, open to the opinions of others and unafraid to express our own views.
Entrepreneurial We are entrepreneurial, undaunted by new initiatives and willing to carry risks ourselves. We provide insight into advantages and risks.
Resourceful together We focus on cooperation, both with our colleagues and with clients. We stimulate the open exchange of thoughts and ideas to allow the team to achieve optimal results. We welcome all new possibilities and ideas. We add nuance and put things into perspective where needed and are out to maximise your organisation’s growth and success.
Such a scan can take several weeks to complete (depending on the scope of the domain in question)
Plan During this phase, we conduct a scan that focuses on questions such as:
Do During this phase, we implement improvements such as:
Check During this phase, we manage and monitor the effects of improvements to:
Act Depending on the results of the continuous monitoring, it may be necessary to take corrective measures. To meet the compliancy standards, it is important to properly document these measures and to be able to show what was done in the event of an inspection.
The world is changing ever more rapidly. The ability to adapt quickly therefore offers the best path to success. Many businesses have become entirely dependent on properly functioning software almost without realising it. Think of e.g. banks, airlines, the automotive industry, etcetera. Not everything can be planned (far) in advance and the ability to adapt continuously and quickly is therefore crucial. Agile is not a method but a mindset. As a result, it calls for organisational development!
BUSINESS AGILITY ALSO INVOLVES VERTICAL COOPERATION
Many businesses have to deal with (excessively) high expenses and delays in their programmes and projects. Their efforts pertaining to service development and process improvement lead to insufficient results.
We also see that often even though “the business” participates in scrum teams, the management of development and the substantive preparation of the business (processes) are not satisfactory.
We have developed an approach with which we have already managed to implement important improvements for a number of our clients.
After introducing a working method developed in cooperation with our client, “the business” not only participates in scrum teams as business owner, but it is also capable of translating strategic choices into the right content for the development process. The people of “the business” are better able to create maximum value for their clients and maintain control of their innovation process.
With our Bakkenist Agile-readiness Scan (BAS), we examine how your organisation might develop and how this change might take shape. Next, we will work together with you and your people to examine where and how the organisation might best develop. This helps reinforce the relationship between the boardroom and the work floor.
Bakkenist applies Agile in its organisational change and service development processes. Our people are certified SAFe Agilists. We stand out because of our pragmatic approach, decisiveness, creativity and the way in which we enable the people in your organisation to perform to the best of their ability.
