Groups I belong to



Senior Manager & Agile Coach. New tech lover.

Back in the late 90's, I started my career as a software developer in an IT services company. We were working on "old" technologies, and we took in 2000 a strong shift by developing a web product offer. I strongly participate to this shift, up to become JEE Technical Team Leader. 

My carrer path went through some major IT Services and Consultancy companies in Europe, as Tech Lead and Project Manager. I have leaded projects up to 2 million euros, and teams up to 30 people. During all those years, I had the chance to practice and to guide my clients and teams through agile (XP and Scrum). I had also the opportunity to put Kanban into practice on a major project, and the results was far beyond my expectations. I can say that when Scrum is combined with Kanban, it provides great results.

I am now an Agile Coach at Cognizant. 

  • I provide agile trainings;
  • I coach and support delivery teams moving to agile and upscale their maturity;
  • I help organizations in transformation, tailoring agile frameworks to specific needs;
  • I facilitate projects with agile values, processes and tools;
  • I steer large scale distributed program using Cognizant agile framework (Daikibo).

If any of you have the chance to come to Paris, don't hesitate to contact me, to exhange about agile worldwide. 

Be agile !
