Agility, Design Thinking and Business. Do they fit?


Time: 9:00-13:00 am

Location: Boardroom (Building 1 SC)


All companies need to evolve and adapt to a changing market. To do this, we have new agile methodologies (Scrum, Lean IT, Kanban, ...) and tools such as Design Thinking. However, although it seems easy in theory to implement them in the organization, it is still difficult to prioritize people before the processes. These are some of the reflections that will be addressed in the conference organized by Mobiliza Academy, a company installed in the University of Valencia Science Park, and the Technological Institute of Information (ITI) of the Polytechnic City of Innovation.

Limited places. Free registration.



8:45- 9:00. Reception and accreditation of attendees

9:00- 9:45. Contribute or set aside. Javier Llacer Muñoz. Director of the Technological Services Unit at the Technological Institute of Information (ITI).

Within any team there must be a balance between the main pillars that make it work, especially if we are talking about high performance teams. These pillars must contribute to the team and the organization. If not, the best thing is to get separated and let the rest walk.

9:45-10:30. Starting from 0. Josep Navarro Soriano. Specialized in agile methodologies and change management in the company.

This communication is based on real experiences of creation and management of a new work team through agile methodologies and despite the fact that the company is already based on its own routine. You will receive an objective point of view with its pros and cons on how to carry out this process, what are the problems that arise along the way and what are the best practices and results obtained.

10:30-11:15. Break Networking with a coffee

11:15-12:00. Product development focused on people.Sonia Montagud, engineer in Computer Science and Master in Software Engineering. Certified in Scrum, Kanban, Management 3.0 and LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum).

A product that is born solving a real problem and adding value to people is a product with a high probability of success. How could we detect those needs? Listening to the client goes beyond reading the suggestion box. We need to empathize with them, to know their real problems and to devise new solutions that facilitate their daily life. Add real value to people with products that may not have been sued but, once they are known, can not live without them.

12:00-12:45. High performance teams How to manage them? Jorge Sánchez López, Coach Agile and Director of Training and Operations of Mobiliza Academy, IT consultant at Mobiliza Consulting. Certified Scrum teacher, ITIL, Prince2, LeanIT, Kanban, Inbound Marketing, ISO 27001.

Companies with an excellent human resources policy include clear goals and shared tasks that are executed by efficient employees resulting in business excellence. A high performance team is one that achieves a high level of results with high satisfaction and motivation of its members. This is achieved by treating employees well, therefore, they will treat clients well. And, finally, if customers are treated well, they will return and shareholders will be satisfied.
