Meet the Team
At AgileWalls we believe that the organizational design from the past, does no longer answer to the challenges of the future. The diverse AgileWalls team skill – and mindset is specifically designed to provide you with answers to those challenges.
The team has a cross-functional setup that allows us to serve our clients across a range of challenges and ambitions. What binds us is a never ending hunger to learn, experiment and make things work.
We care about making deeper connections. Being such a mixed group forces us to walk our own talk; we include all perpectives in our decision making and our long term orientation forces us to build sustainable relationships. We share a love for the outdoors and try to make the world a better place.

Bart’s orientation is technical, practical and thorough. A sincere character, unlikely to hear many decibels coming from his mouth. Gifted with a strong moral compass, his grounded nature allows others to fly. The force is strong with this one…

Dolf is a strategically and result oriented thinker with seemingly no limits to his energy. Engineers projects during his long trailruns, while surfing or when making cider in his orchard. Then makes them work pulling everyone together in the process.

Obeya Coach, Agile Coach & Trainer
A nerd with love for people. Mark is all about the moment when discussion turns into dialogue. A balanced mix of compassion and insight, leading to action. Mark likes people more than technique but it’s not far off. He would disagree but we have put it here anyway.
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.
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.
We wish the same for you as we do for ourselves.
We donate 1% of our turnover to environmental protection
“To positively change the environment with donations from companies.” This is the declared motto of 1% for the Planet. In 2002, the two owners of the clothing company Patagonia founded the international organization and thus make an important contribution to the maintenance of the environment.
The network now works with nearly 4,000 audited non-profit environmental protection organizations around the world. Over 1,600 companies are already part of the campaign, including us. Find out more on onepercentfortheplanet.org
We are committed to donating 1% of our revenue to organizations we believe in. Every. Single. Year.
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
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.
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.
