Working with agile means working with people and communication. At Danfoss we use various tools to facilitate the agile process, but all are focused around people.
At Danfoss Drives, we practice agile principles and our developers take responsibility for their tasks and all aspects of the product software. This is done as part of product focused multi-disciplinary teams.

What is your responsibility at Danfoss?
What projects do you work on?
What is the most important tool?
I work with people. If that could be consider as a tool I work together with the individuals and the teams. If I would have to mention some of the tools I use as an agile coach, those could land on the area of observation, coaching, facilitation, asking powerful questions and helping to build relationships in the organization.
What is the best part of your work?
The best part of my work is to see that with my help, even not technical, my colleagues and the organization can grow. See the growth on people and “aha” moments, makes my day.
Why did you choose Danfoss?
Danfoss has a great reputation in Denmark. When I finished my education in Denmark, I was looking to work in an organization aligned with my values and with a clear purpose. Therefore, I applied for Danfoss.
Did anything surprise you when you started?
I think many things, and all good. If I would have to pick two, that would be the warm welcome that I got at my first day at work, where everybody seemed to be happy to have a new colleague. That made me feel at home.
The second one is the openness of my new colleagues. Coming from a different culture, I go shocked about how easy was to ask questions, get answers and how quick I was already in the lab operating some of the machines that Danfoss was producing at that time. It took literally 3 days to be in the lab operating machines.
Where do you live?
I live in Sønderborg with my girlfriend. We are a very international family, since I come from Spain, she comes from Russia, and our two daughters are born in Denmark.
