About our facilitator

Fernando Guigou is Uruguayan and Italian, graduated from the Universidad de la República (Uruguay) and has worked in large companies in Uruguay, Argentina, Germany and Switzerland, where he lives now.

After years working for companies like Telefónica, Siemens, UBS, Credit Suisse, etc. he was always skeptical regarding traditional management theories and preferred to stay on the technical path ... until 2007. This year, after reading "Lean Software Development" from Mary & Tom Poppendieck, he started following their work, books and workshops and discovered the theory that formally expresses all his intuitions on common-sense practices that were successful. His first large system for example, was put in production in 1991 and is still in use today, without touching a single line of code. It was intuitively built based on these principles.

Fernando is now the CEO and Principal Lean Consultant of Synchronit GmbH, a swiss-based company specialized on Lean Consulting and Implementation, as well as offering Agile Teams for development abroad, based on a particular model: http://teamshore.org
