Ricardo Abella

Enterprise Agile Coach, with 15+ years in finance, retail, energy, engineering and utilities. I build high-performance teams, improve processes, transform organizations, and grow the bottom-line. I strongly focus on Agile principles and values; frameworks and practices (Scrum, Kanban, XP, Design Thinking, SAFe) are simply the means. I believe that balancing coaching-mentoring-training is key to build high-performance organizations.
