IT Project Manager
Bosch Service Solutions

Since the very first moment, I realized that the way to manage IT and Software must to be different than managing other fields. Then I started learning by myself, reading articles, consulting webpages, wacthing webinars, etc. This is what I like to call my "agile transformation", and I began putting all those good practices on a daily basis. After the first period at the Company, I already was very familiar working with Agile Methodologies. Here a summary of the tasks that I was responsible for:
  • Implementation of Agile Methodologies for Software Development such as Scrum and Kanban
  • Provide support with responsibilities of Scrum Master and Product Owner in international projects
  • Collect User Stories and prioritize Backlogs
  • Manage meetings before the beginning of the project and coordination meetings: weekly and daily
  • Develop tools for project management of international projects with Europe, The United States, Brazil and Costa Rica
