The KNOWLEDGE

Engineering Leadership is not about knowing the answer to every problem, it’s about knowing the questions to be made in front of every need, topic or initiative. With the huge spectrum of skill sets, technologies, methodologies, contexts and needs, it makes no sense trying to master them all. The objective is to gain enough knowledge and intuition to detect what needs to be done, identify the best resources to solve the need and have the ability to understand and evaluate the proposed solution.

My 30 years of experience gave me this capability around almost any subject or skill involved in digital matters. I’m listing here few of them, but we probably could talk about any IT related topic you may be concerned about.

Software Development Methodology

Walking on water and developing software from a specification are easy if both are frozen. (Edward V. Berard)

I’m a strong advocate of the Agile Manifesto. This “new look” to the Software Engineering has brought large productivity, predictability and quality improvements.
