Software delivery expert with 15 years experience and 9 years of Agile Software Development. Lean Startup entrepreneur at RandomManager.com
Vasco is capable of changing your perspective quickly in a refreshing way. We had an animated discussion on lean software development and agile working in our company and I got the advice and coaching I needed to focus on the right things. He focused on iterative learning and validating assumption by experiment.
Vasco is focussed and has a wealth of knowledge. I can highly recommend him for advice on entrepreneurship, lean methods or software development strategies.
Vasco is truly an inspiration. I have been working with Vasco for the last 7 months and I can say he is a true leader. He knows exactly how to motivate people in difficult times and he always has the right advice for the right moment. His know-how related to agile is just something unbelievable. The months I have spent with him brought me the most precious learning's both in my career and personal life.
Open, honest, lively and radiates high positive energy around him. A true agile coach. Strong yet subtle and experienced facilitator and excellent public speaker. If you need a person to reflect with... Vasco is your coach. One of the professional persons I admire and learned a lot from.
Vasco brings value in many situations by his open way of thinking. A fine observer of organizations, he is very constant and attached to his principles and uses them with every occasion. I like very much how he manages to show a new facet in almost any situation. His value as a coach is quite high, as he teaches those around him with great care. He is not a perfect coach, but tries to improve with every occasion. I sincerely recommend him as an organizational coach and agile transition leader.
I am keen to endorse Vasco as I consider him to be a thoughtful, hard-working and capable former colleague. Vasco always put the customer first and managed time and time again to deliver exceptional technical product improvements that helped close significant deals. In this way, Vasco was a key contributor to our success in international markets and thus is highly recommended.
Vasco is a really smart thinker and has demonstrated a deep understanding of the Agile principles. His knowledge is not just from the books but from hands on experience making things happen. His attitude to share the wisdom and open his wide network of people, makes him to stand a couple of steps ahead of others.
I met Vasco at the Agile Eastern Europe 2010 conference in Kiev. He was one (of 34) of the lecturers. I could say that his lecture was one of the best ones I have attended at that conference. He has got a very good contact with the audience, perfect presentation skills and solid knowledge in Agile. He is eager to share his knowledge and experience for inspiring and helping the Agile community. I would recommend Vasco as an Agile Coach and/or would invite him as a key note speaker in an Agile conference or workshop.
In his role as the product manager Vasco is using the experience and insight he collected while working as a project manager. As a project manager, he was far above the standard. There aren't many project managers in the world who really understand agile software development like Vasco. I have never met a product manager who would come even close to Vasco's level on the subject.
