To demonstrate that there is always a more effective, better and simple way of doing things, is one of my greatest goals in life; both personally and professionally; always making clear that the main benefit of doing what you love, in my case technology and innovation, is to be yourself.
Working life in Technology has left me several lessons and I would like to share with you the most valuable ones and those that have contributed to my growth the most.
“Do not start a trip without a map” – In the IT world, nothing can be left to chance, a well-defined plan, a path traced and the necessary equipment will get you to your goal; although they are not all that determines success. So before starting any project, I take a moment, a blank page and trace in a visual way what we want to get, a dream board, that over the months will become into a product.
“Turn your Achilles heel into your best weapon” – I learned that stubbornness is not so bad when you put it right and turn it into determination and patience. Thanks to that and in collaboration with different areas teams. I have had great successes in my career as a Research Line Manager in the Banorte Channel Development Laboratory, which resulted in the “Banca del Futuro” model and the introduction of data analysis for project monitoring.
“Among all, we know everything” – is the phrase I like to use to emphasize teamwork, highlighting that there are no levels, if not a horizontal cooperation based on knowledge and companionship, “we do not have a team, we are part of it” and it’s the coolture (yes, cool) that I try to transmit to the team every day.
Apart from technology, I have applied these lessons in many areas of my life, only to realize that this is the best project of all, and like in any project, issues sometimes arise, but nothing that good planning, the right team and a great determination can not overcome.
