With this new executive responsible for both the Project Management and Deployment Departments, ECT is providing customers with end-to-end, unified management of all projects from kick-off through agile implementation, all the way to commissioning and turnover to maintenance.
Munich, March 19, 2019 – ECT (European Computer Telecoms AG), Europe’s leading communications software company for the realization of value-added services in next-generation networks, further increases its commitment to customer satisfaction by introducing a new executive, Francesc Font, responsible for both the Project Management and Project Deployment Departments. Francesc reports directly to the company’s Board of Directors.
My goal is to have an engine that works perfectly
Francesc, who has more than 20 years of experience as a business analyst and project manager, a PhD in Telecommunications, and diverse certifications, explains: “My goal is to have an engine that works perfectly. All parts must work together with as little friction as possible. This means our project management processes must match our internal agile processes as well as our release management processes, so we can always deliver optimal results to our customers, regardless of the nature of the project.”
This addition of another management layer was in part motivated by the company’s recent growth as well as the concomitant adoption of agile methodology. One of Francesc’s first tasks was to build up an internal team of scrum masters that, together with project management and deployment, monitors the implementation and delivery processes, enables faster responses to the changing needs of every project, generates awareness, and encourages communication between all participants and stakeholders throughout the journey.
“Francesc is helping our experts and our JAPD (Joint Agile Product Development) customers to move from traditional waterfall to agile development”, said Metin Sezer, Deputy CEO of ECT. “Agile methodology has been implemented throughout ECT and it is now a fundamental part of our company’s growth plan for the rest of 2019 and forward. We are delighted to have an expert like Francesc Font in our executive management.”
