Ligia is a versatile product-minded engineer and leader with a curious mind and problem-solving attitude. With varied experience in the industry, her main goal has always been to make everyone's work more effective by customizing and adapting agile ways of working to company and team needs. She loves everything agile, product, and engineering, and in her free time, she likes to dance, do yoga, and travel.
I have worked in a few different types and sizes of product organizations, applying agile ways of working from different roles. Starting with strict by-the-book practices of Scrum or SAFe and learning how to adapt them and explain them to the more skeptical minds in the engineering world. As part of my experience, I have created a distilled approach with a strong belief that everyone can understand the foundational concepts that underpin agile methodologies. As an engineering manager with agile coaching background and approach to my work, I use these concepts to help teams find their way and learn how to be agile and not just apply agile methods.
