Petula Guimaraes

Hi, I'm Petula!

What i am about

With over 2 decades of experience in the technology industry and a passion for people and problem-solving, I am a no-nonsense Agilist.

I truly believe in the power of collaboration and creativity to propel organizations to their next level in growth and performance. That is why I am in the business of helping people to design meaningful interactions between individuals, teams, and departments.


What I do and how i got here

My expertise is Lean-Agile, so you probably heard about Scrum, SAFe, Kanban. I also borrow from a host of open source and proprietary frameworks and approaches, such as Solution Focus coaching, Management 3.0, Systems Thinking, STATIK, Agenda Shift, Design Thinking, etc.

I have both experience and industry certifications. I was once Scrum Master, a role that I credit for my growing immensely as a person. Since then I have shifted to coaching, broaden my skills beyond Scrum, Kanban and SAFe and started helping teams and individuals to discover and achieve their own goals beyond labels.

I love sharing in the community. One of my favorite contributions was with Serious Scrum. I am active in the Agile Community in Ontario / Quebec circuit and I have been speaker in the Spark the Change and Agile Tour Montreal a few times and I organized gatherings such as Agile Coach Camp Canada. Currently I am dedicating a lot of my time experimenting with The LAB of all things agile.

I teach, mentor and consult remotely anywhere in the world and in person in the Montreal – QC area.
