About me

Michal Vallo
Michal Vallo

Ing. Michal Vallo, MBA, CSP

I build agile organizations, teams, advise on creating organizational governance and business models, coach senior executives in agile operation and delivery and coach leaders to act in their role proactively. It's a source of pleasure, satisfaction, and fun. I am a strong believer in agile management principles and active THEY buster.

My passion is about management innovation. It is about breaking the status quo in the perception of the role of a manager in the organization and in an invitation to change. I am helping organizations to establish a culture, where every single individual and his potential really matter. I am helping individuals to learn, how to become engaged and accountable for their actions. Unlock the creative potential of the people and focusing them on business is critical for performance, engagement and innovation, both evolutionary and radical. This all converts to delighted customers, innovation and sustainability.

Occasionally I write articles or I am a speaker at conferences and meet-ups, where I promote agile management principles and techniques. Or I advise in conference organization, in crafting program or designing operations. Beyond my work I feed my curiosity, visiting inspiring organizations and learning from them. Or I run. From a short track until Marathon. With love for Paraguay.

When working with clients I stick to my Values - Trust, Knowledge & Development, Commitment, Authenticity and Ethical Principle. Quality of mutual relation is of paramount importance.
