My work as Project Manager, is to keep track and monitor the user stories, identify and mitigate possible risks, keep the communication channels open, conflict handling and politics, all this while applying Agile methodologies such as Scrum and Kanban.

Another hat that I wear (we use hats analogies) is the Portfolio Manager, where I help to organize around a hundred projects, verify its dependencies, business impact, complexity, resource allocation and timelines based on quarters and fiscal years.

Finally, this is an amazing experience! I learned (and keep learning) how to improve my methodologies and process while I quickly adapt to a challenging environment (Big Data) which has a strong presence in the market.
