Agile is a philosophy well known for managing software products and teams. But it is not just that. It is also a powerful tool for innovation in any industry, language services included. The agile manifesto states that individuals and interactions are more important than processes and tools. Customer collaboration is more important than contract negotiation. And responding to change is more important than following a plan. This webinar aims to introduce the main concepts of Agile Management and “localize” them to language service organizations and translation project management in particular. 

We will cover

  • The agile organization: work environment, trust, communication, and team.
  • The values and pillars of Scrum.
  • How to apply the agile philosophy to translation project management.
  • The value of errors as an investment in constant improvement.
Host organization: Go Global Consulting

Go Global Consulting

Back in 2003 I graduated with honors as an English-Spanish Sworn Translator. During some years I worked as a freelance translator specialized in life sciences and started sharing projects and clients with my college colleague and current business partner: Gabriela Roselló. As projects became larger and more challenging, we decided to incorporate Go Global. In 2016, 2017 and 2018 our company was named among the 10 largest Language Service Providers in Latin America by CSA annual ranking. The company evolved and I also needed to evolve from linguist-entrepreneur into business woman. In 2013 I obtained a Post-graduate Degree in Business Management and Marketing from UADE (Universidad Argentina de la Empresa) and in 2018 I achieved an MBA from IAE Business School. As COO I lead Operations and Sales teams at Go Global. As a born entrepreneur, I am always looking for new challenges to continue learning and growing.
