GLOBAL VISION

Moving towards the transformation of a company is possible through the incorporation of innovative methodologies and new technologies.

After designing strategies for over 300 companies and institutions and 20 years of executive management within this creative, grueling and changing world of communication, I thought I had something to say.
That it was a task, almost a duty, to transmit a background built on success and failure, on the sense of achievement in the aftermath of incredible teamwork, on creating and destroying, or on the time that you did not have, dedicated to keeping abreast of everything, learning, improving and leading the transfer of that knowledge to every nook and cranny of your organization.
Moving towards the transformation of a company is possible through the incorporation of innovative methodologies and new technologies.
On the course "Methodologies for transformation: Process design and project management", I have gleaned the basic and essential knowledge for any manager. Techniques, frameworks and tips to improve leadership skills without resorting to coaching (let us leave this to professional coaches). The basics of Business Process Management, the standard BPMN, some useful models for HR or the main techniques for project management, PMP, Scrum or Kanban, along with their associated technologies are some of the allied tools that facilitate our managerial endeavors. 
Moving towards the transformation of the company is possible through the incorporation of innovative methodologies and new technologies, now increasingly accessible, but let us not forget how indispensable the leader´s role is when it comes to shaping a new company culture. That is why, in my opinion, we should:
1. Identify and focus on what generates value for the company. Do not get lost in the process and always keep track of opportunities and ideas to decide when and how they could be implemented. It is important that you establish and periodically update the priorities of the actions to be carried out. 
2. Devote some time to thinking whether it is possible to do things better or a different way, particularly if it involves less consumption of time and resources.
3. Reflect, devise, implement and analyze, that is, create, plan and monitor. These are our main processes. If you participate in the execution, this will limit your chances of leading and orchestrating.
4. Incorporate ongoing improvement and innovation in each process and cultivate a creative mind; it will facilitate decision-making and the detection of opportunities.
5. Always document in writing or graphically the knowledge generated by your company. The oral transmission of culture should be a thing of the past. 
6. Communication is multidirectional. It generates the appropriate channels for information to be accessible and promotes the creation of internal spaces for expression. 
7. Be ambitious in the company vision and surround yourself with a team of giants whenever possible.
Obviously, every different approach to leadership will result in its corresponding recommendations, but this proposal is about organization, about how we produce and about how we create.
