15 years of experience in Software Development and System Management has driven Oana to embrace Agile and Lean mind set, principles and practices, that she believes are the most effective approaches for 21st century lead organizations wiling to focus on quality products with high impact on the market. She recently embraced the entrepreneurship path by founding cOemerge, a company that helps its large or smaller clients grow Agility and entrepreneurial mindset through Lean Startup.
To reinforce the effectiveness of Lean Startup, she developed an original approach to defining products in a Lean Startup way, called “Test Driven Business”.
Oana acts as an Agile Transformation facilitator, using Creative Solution Definition. She trains and coach Agile teams (from core Business to Software Development and Support Services), so they are able to adopt the set of practices, from Scrum to Kanban and Lean improvement techniques, that are most adapted to their context and goal. A key focus is building cross-organizations Product Ownership awareness to align their mission alignment toward User Value creation.
In her former experience as CIO of Eurosport, the specific context of media combined to the world of sports, Oana had her first reflections about the benefits of XP, SCRUM and LEAN. These are helpful answers in a landscape that requires a highly adaptive Software Development approach, combined with full commitment in an event-driven constraint context.
Oana also participates actively in Agile French and International Community. She strongly believes that connected knowledge is a value generator. She is a frequent speaker in different Agile French and International conferences. She helps reinforce collaboration in the Agile and Lean community by being one of the ALE2011 through 2013 Member of the Organision Team, a member of the Agile Tour Board since 2009, Scrum Gathering in Paris in September 2013, and so on.
