About Me
I'm a French Product Owner with IT engineering background living in Netherland.
I have a strong analytic mindset that allows me to apply the same scientific rigour in every part of my job : from analyzing needs and systems, defining a product vision based on fact and KPI, designing features and setting a roadmap.
What's more, I'm a true team player and strong believer in collective intelligence. I love to facilitate continuous improvement processes and set up the framework and organize tasks in a rational and pragmatic way in collaboration with my teammates or stakeholders. As a consequence I naturally became product owner and then project manager.

I'm a servant for my teammates and fulfill myself in collaborative environment, putting hands on projects and designing user-oriented solutions.
  • I have been business analyst/software functional designer for "LinkySup" for one year before becoming product owner.
    I worked in one of the project's team made of 15 peoples : developers, analyst and testers on features such as supervision system's artificial intelligence, Linky's systems data reconciliation (100 data flows were connected to LinkySup), remote upgrade system for meters software
  • Fostering strong relationships with key stakeholders to ensure that their views and requirements were captured in the product backlog. Communicating with them at each stage of the project to avoid project drifting
  • Identifying and solving dependencies with the other product owners of the Linky Program
  • Driving brainstorming with system analysts and engineering team to design functionalities and splitting features into users stories
  • Prioritizing items in the backlog. Specifying the definition-of-done in cooperation with the development team. Tracking development progress with SCRUM/Kanban methodologies
  • Writing detailed specifications as well as user stories taking into account technical constraints
  • Encouraging continuous improvement
