SI Agile:


Social Impact Agile is a movement focused on carrying out Social projects, created by a team of professionals in Agile and Development applicable to any effort that seeks to improve the quality of life of one or more people.


SiAgile was created with the participation of Rocío Briceño, Alistair Cockburn and Gerardo Blizter who actively work in this movement. SIAgile also recognizes the contribution in part of the meetings of Ricardo Sanchez and Ernesto Mondelo even when they are not part of the team anymore.


Currently SIAgile has the support of organizations and groups of volunteers in different parts of the world, forming a global network of professionals in agile applied to social impact.

Social Impact Agile began in 2016 under the name of positive impact management philosophy, applied to the areas of Corporate Social Responsibility by Rocío Briceño, later changing the name to Agile in Social Impact.


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


In 2019 Alistair Cockburn joins the movement and gives it the impetus that was needed to form a team commitment since as a co-creator of agility he had been making efforts in multiple industries.


Gerardo Blitzer, had been working on social projects for many years and in 2019 decided to join together 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, director of an education program in project management for development at the IDB, and Ricardo Sanchez, at that time, a consultant for the IDB.
