Joan is a Computer Engineer, who has worked for small, medium and large companies and also with startups.
He entered in the Agile world in 2012 when he was a software developer introducing XP practices in his teams.
He did a major turn when he switched to leading teams, where he began to help change how the teams and the company worked, using Management 3.0.
From that point, spreading the Agile mentality at the corporate level beyond the IT teams is what motivates him and even better if it is in distributed and multicultural environments.

As far back as I can remember, I am curious and I wonder why things happen. My hipster vein tells me that to see beyond the tip of the iceberg, you have to put on your diving goggles and look below the surface from different points. I come from software development, and along this professional path I discovered the Agile mindset. I found a passion that has become both work and hobby. My professional motto: «BE Agile» before «DOING Agile»; and my goal: to inspire people to achieve it.
I believe in the power of the group over individuals to achieve common goals, and in empathy and respect as pillars that sustain relationships. The experiences and learnings that I experience accompanying organizations and teams on this path helps me to become a better person.
