Andrea is a business transformation catalyst, with over 10 years’ experience working with business efficiency, agile product development and innovation.
Originally a software developer, Andrea has experience of working as part of large scale agile distributed teams on both legacy and on latest technologies. However, after realising just how much the level of mastery, purpose and autonomy determines whether organisations and teams will succeed with their goals – she shifted her career, and committed to becoming a facilitator and coach of teams, managers, product owners and scrum masters.
As a catalyst, she now works with executive teams to create systemic enablers of agility – product ownership, frequent goal setting and evaluation (OKRs), innovation design sprints, open space technologies and value stream visualisation techniques.
Andrea is also experienced in coaching teams and teams of teams (agile release trains) to get started with more collaboration, better communication and more learning. She believes that people make or break, and transform, companies and it is therefore her mission to empower people and teams to better align their skills, strengths and interests with their job.
Andrea’s agile coaching and business transformation experience spans 9 countries across Asia, the Americas and Europe, as well as many industries including banking, telecom, multimedia, non-profit and retail.
