I help IT organizations to implement better ways of doing business; and I coach teams and individuals who want to improve technically and relationally.
My main focus is on helping companies to transition to organizational and cultural models that are better suited to the kind of knowledge work that's so typical of software development -- which includes, but it's not limited to, Agile and Lean.
In over 20 years of professional experience, I had clients in three different continents and I worked with organizations ranging from the United Nations to small and dynamics IT companies.
Currently I work in Europe. I've worked also in the USA on a O-1 visa for "extraordinary abilities in Sciences”.
As part of my regular activities, I enjoy sharing what I know by speaking at major international conferences.

Dreaming - how business Intent drives your Agile initiatives
Bringing something from inception to completion (a software project, for instance) is a non-linear journey that some people seem better at traveling, while others get lost or struggle along the way.
Using an organizational model based on three key elements named Dream, Order, and Action (corresponding roughly to business intent, structure and production) you'll see how these can represent and improve the processes, artifacts, roles and dynamics in a mature Agile team or company.
More specifically, they can help the team to stay aligned with the business intent of the project and travel the journey to successful completion in a more effective and proactive way.
We'll also address the relevance, for leaders, of considering the business intent of their projects as an integral part of their organizational model, and as a driving force that can be shared with -- and increased by -- the entire team.
By bringing the business intent into the team culture, the Agile practices that you already have in place not only can help you to "incrementally deliver working units of code" but they also become a framework to support cohesion and alignment into the social fabric of your team.
The model we'll use comes from organizational systemics, a humanistic field that draws from disciplines such as psychology and the dynamics of social groups.
Attend this session to bring more proactivity into your team, more creativity, and more alignment to the business goal of your projects.
