Teacher, Coach and Mentor on Agile practices
Since 1999 I pursue my passion and proficiency in Digital Product Development while working predominantly in the payment and technology spaces. In a traditional product career from business analyst through to Executive VP of Products, it was always teamwork in the context of the organisation that fascinated me.
My discovery of Agile in 2010 sparked a new-found thirst of learning. Since going independent in 2012, I continue to learn & explore new ways of high-performance teamwork.
When I’m not teaching, coaching, or mentoring Agile practitioners, leaders, or coaches, I serve leadership teams as their team coach (here’s an example). Thusly I support the unlocking of major enterprise agility improvements as the leadership team journeys towards high-performance.
Over the years I got to work with a variety of companies across sectors (see below). The status quo is that only about 10% of teams are high-performing, leadership teams included. I am devoted to improving upon this as much as possible.
A few more bits of information about my background: Cultures around the globe fascinate me. I ran a couple of marathons so far. 1% for the Planet is a global network for healthy planet activists that I’m a proud member of. With my wife & baby-boy, we currently live in Porto, Portugal.
