Social Impact Agile began in 2016 under the name of management philosophy with positive impact, applied to the areas of Corporate Social Responsibility by Rocío Briceño, later changing the name to Agility in  Social Impact when he started working with projects in the public sector and NGOs.

In 2018 Rocío carried out some consultancies for the Inter-American Development Bank IDB and mentioned the subject of what she has been working on in several conversations with people she knows  working there.


In 2019 Alistair Cockburn joins the movement and gives it the impulse that  it was needed to build a team commitment since as a co-creator of agile I had been making efforts in multiple industries.

Gerardo Blitzer, had been working on social projects for many years and in 2019 he decided to join to contribute his knowledge in foundations and social work in Argentina.


In August 2019, a meeting of friends was held, in which Ernesto Mondelo, at that time the director of an education program in project management for development at the IDB, and Ricardo Sanchez, at that time a consultant for the IDB, also decided to participate.

The compromises:


SIAgile declares  and recognizes the following commitments taken as key to social impact projects: 

1. Clear and shared objectives
To align the people who work on the social project with the results,
We will look for projects with clear objectives and benefits that have the
stakeholder engagement.

2. Recipients actively involved
To maximize the impact, we will work in teams that actively involve the recipients in the management of social projects.

3. Teams with a social passion
To ensure that the people who execute the project deliver high-impact social results, we will work in teams with a social passion.

4. Transparency
To gain the trust and support of all project stakeholders, we will work in transparent teams with information and decision-making during project management.


5. Frequent and visible results.
To maximize the impact, we will work in teams that actively involve the recipients in the management of social projects.


These commitments are the basis for social projects to have a high impact and to the extent that they are present, the conditions will be given to transform social ideals into realities and benefits that have a positive impact on the lives of the recipients.
