About Us

Our Vision

Great collaboration should be an inclusive process that – when executed well – leads to sustainable decisions. 

Sustainable companies can play a vital role in sustainable societies.

For us this is a fact.

And we believe that with the right tooling; you can do this yourself.


Our Mission

We are on a mission to make life easier and collaboration more effective. 

Good visual management leads to better collaboration. 

Using modular design as basic principle we can bring great visual management to your doorstep. Both physical and digital.

Our Values

We wish the same for you as we do for ourselves.

About the Founders

Bart Bongers en Dolf Reijnders are behind the AgileWalls project.

Raised within the Lean Management filosophy originating at Toyota, until a few years ago they consulted large scale Agile transformations. Their personalities are opposites; Bart modest, Dolf abundant. They are connected in their vision on life and business. Freedom, learning, having fun and giving back are the core values from which Bart and Dolf operate. 

The creation of AgileWalls started from a “mobile office”. Bart and Dolf put their campervan-turned-into-office there where energy and inspiration flows. Working with ocean views the one day and the next one from a forest, they link the success of their creations to the positive effects of nature.

This clearly shows in their designs and innovative use of materials. 

No nonsense. Walk the talk. Shit must work. 

But with a keen eye for comfort and smart design.

The Obeya Association

At AgileWalls we have years of experience in building revolutionary Obeya’s across multiple industries.

Throughout the years, our designs developed:

  • A strong connection between digital and analog/physical collaboration spaces.
  • Strong visual structures that make Obeya collaboration intuitive and easily accessible
We think that Obeya deserves to be more than a tool.
A philosophy by itself perhaps.
A missing piece in the Organizational Theory puzzle.
A way to deal with the challenges ahead.
And with full potential to outgrow its status as tool within the Lean toolbox.
 
This is why Bart and Dolf have also founded the Obeya Association.
AgileWalls-Obeya-Room

The Obeya Association is a platform and a world wide network that aims to share knowledge on Obeya easier than before.

Obeya is a bit of a new kid on the organizational theory block and the Obeya Association has set out to assure quality.

The Obeya Association aims to develop Obeya “from tool to philosophy”. And Bart and Dolf strongly support the case.

Being a community of Obeya practitioners, the Associates are constantly discussing, creating, sharing, testing and continuously improving Obeya practices.
