PROFILE

SUMMARY

I was born in Madrid, Spain, and I’m delighted to have grown up in a city so full of people, places to see and interesting stories. Anyway, I have also lived in several locations within the UK and San Jose, Costa Rica. Having lived in such different cultures has made me open minded person. Restless mind, passionate about agile methodologies, good products, design and photography. I consider myself an open, creative and innovative person with a passion for design and with great leadership skills. I am an achiever. I studied Computer Science at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and I am an Executive MBA from the EOI Business School. I've focused my career to help companies to improve the way they work through Agile methodologies as an Agile Coach and I've helped to create great products as a Product Manager. - See more at: https://www.scrumalliance.org/community/profile/mnovoacuse#sthash.zMw5mg4i.dpuf
