and SKOK training/coaching (Spain)


About Teresa


Teresa and Niels first met at a conference in Amsterdam - the first conference organized by the recently-founded Stoos movement. They soon started organizing a first joint 1-day "Organize for Complexity" clinic in Barcelona, together with a couple of other members from Spain´s Agile/Scrum scene. That workshop became an instant success and led to a follow-up "Change Clinic" workshop. At least half of the first edition´s participants showed up again at the second workshop.

Teresa Oliver is founder and director of Skok, a company dedicated to development and coaching for agile project and team practices. Teresa has lived in countries as diverse as Slovakia, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland, Argentina, Italy and Portugal, doing all kinds of project and development and implementation work related to IT systems, and managing large IT teams. Her clients included Unión Fenosa, Vodafone, Telefónica and BT. In 2005, she decided to move to Zaragoza, Spain, to be part of a start-up company. She subsequently became more interested in people management and HR systems that would solve the dilemmas and issues of traditional approaches.

Her current work centers on helping clientes with implementing agile practices in all kinds of work processes. She is a frequent public speaker and teacher at masters and post-graduate programs in Spain. Teresa is an active member of the Spanish agile movement, where she collaborates on the organization of events and congresses. She is also part of the Stoos Network, and a co-organizer of TEDxZaragoza. The company she heads, Skok, recently was awarded the Management Innovation prize of the IBM chair at the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
