About the Book

Joe´s direct superior has appointed him as the perfect candidate to lead a project with great challenges and without a clear way out: a project that sought an innovative solution.

The solution to Joe's problem required creative thinking, it had to be cheap, mobile, adaptable, accurate, and compliant with the company's strict security rules.

Joe talked to some friends who put him in contact with the authors of this eBook. "These guys will help you with innovation, service design, agile methodology and the like."

This eBook is about this success story.

Paulo Caroli
Paulo Caroli

Meet Paulo Caroli , the Lean MVP and retrospective guy that's taken a unique approach to people and interactions over process and tools (first sentence from the Agile Manifesto). He thinks product creation and evolution should be based on real learnings (goodbye long projects planned on hypothetical requirements). It should be based on the minimum viable products (the fastest enabler for validated learning based on real usage). 

Principal consultant at Thoughtworks Brazil and co-founder of AgileBrazil,  Paulo Caroli has over twenty years of experience in software development, passing in various corporations in Brazil, India, USA and Latin America. In 2000, he met the Extreme Programming and since then has focused its expertise in processes and practices of Agile & Lean. He joined Thoughtworks in 2006 and held the positions of Agile Coach, Trainer and Project Manager. He received a Bachelor of Computer Science and MS in Software Engineering, both from PUC -Rio. Author of “To the point; a recipe for creating lean products”and “Fun Retrospectives; activities and ideas for making agile retrospectives more engaging”.  Read more at

I'm a technologist by formation and a designer by vocation, having over 10 years of experience with agile software design and development.

I am passionate about interaction design, front-end development, agile methodologies and processes and coaching, but above all, what I really love is to solve people's problems. I believe every designer's main mission is to improve people's lives, being it through technology or by improving the way they experience the world.
