Agile ICT Project Manager

The Faktory
  • 08/2016 - 08/2019
  • Liège, Belgium
Startup Incubator
  • In order to help the startups to organize their team and product, I organized workshops about agility and Scrum, with the role of the Product Owner and priorities management around product value
  • One start-up had difficulties to organize the work to deliver a connected object. I proposed them to help with using Scrum to better prioritize the backlog to deliver "user" value first before technicalities.
    The start-up could finally deliver a working product to be tested by their market to collect feedbacks in much less time.
