Ciao, I'm Jacopo!
I am a freelance strategy consultant.
In 2003 I spotted new agile ways to develop software and, as a young entrepreneur I gave them a try. I never came back, through serial entrepreneurship and consulting. I introduced agile in eBay Italia, Siemens and FAO but in 2011 I realized the problem often is in organisations’ governance and in the agreements we negotiate. In the meantime I became a member of the board of European Organisation Design Forum (EODF) for a while.
Is one of my passions. As a certified skipper, I enjoy sailing with my friends around the Mediterranean.
I get hired by people who don’t want to waste time, money or enthusiasm. I help those people working together in better ways because that’s a big chunk of our lives.
I wrote a few books: “Pro PHP Refactoring”, a TDD chapter in “PHP Best Practices” and “Extreme Contracts” in 2017, on contracts and negotiation in knowledge work. I also contributed to a couple of books written by Jurgen Appelo.
I am among the founders of ALE Agile Lean Europe network, PHP User Group Roma and Arduino User Group Roma.
I’ve got a sailing license because of the sea, a glider pilot license because of the sky and I am an LSP facilitator certified by Lucio Margulis.
