Agile professional, consultant and trainer. Over the last years I have been dedicated to the agile world working as a Developer, Team Lead, Scrum Master, Product Owner, Chief Agile Coach, Trainer and now as a Consultant with focus in hansei-based continuous improvement.
I promote Scrum adoption using "Scrum Orgánico" which states that Scrum adoption should be taken as a iterative and incremental project avoiding an all-or-nothing mindset. You can read more about this in my blog, slides and talks.
Also I'm a proud nikkei and like to share and introduce elements from the Japanese culture and enviroment to the process and practices I work with, interested in the outcome of the cultural mix.
I'm an active member of the Agile Latam community, dojo's facilitator, speaker and organizer of agile events. Have participated as a speaker, volunteer and attendee in the three last Latam agile conferences Ágiles 2010 (Perú), Agiles 2011 (Argentina), Ágiles 2012 (Argentina) and Agile2013 (USA). Also I've been part of the organization team and speaker in the Scrum Alliance Regional Gathering: Buenos Aires 2012.
In Perú I've been speaker in the Agile Open Lima III, Agile Open Lima V and Agile Open Lima VII events, where I also was a organizer, I've talked in several universities about agile, facilitated coding dojos and organized the first DevJam JamSession in Lima.
