Technical Director at
Stathis is the director of Operations at giaola PC, a rapidly- growing startup based in Athens.Giaola wants to change the way people search and ask for everyday services.

However, Stathis believes that an organisation has to change itself first in order to make a change to its external environment. And applying project management is the first step toward this change. Hence, Stathis duty is to assist all departments of the organization in embracing agile project management, applying its methodologies and even improving the way they make use of them on a daily basis.

This improvement includes holding daily ceremonies, conducting further requirements analysis, requirements prioritization and re- prioritization and continuous integration.  But the cornerstone remains the establishment of concrete communication channels among all the stakeholders of the project!
