Lorena Barale


Program/Project Manager with 10+ years of experience in IT. Reliable, energetic, passionate and committed in every project in which I get involved.

Specializing in agile and traditional methodologies, I lead teams of 80 collaborators, managing multiple projects simultaneously, with 25 of them completed within budget in the last 4 years.

My postgraduate degrees in project management and business administration, as well as several international certifications obtained, allow me to consolidate my professional skills.

Scope definition and tracking, constraints, risk and schedule management and their dependencies are among my main strengths. Monitoring project objectives, delivering to customers on time , following-up planned releases and sprint tasks are in my background. Project management and Agile coaching, as well as presentations of projects status to customers are some of my remarkable features.

A significant part of my life was spent in the field of music as a violinist. This gave me tools to complement the technical and structured vision of engineering, giving rise to a broader, more flexible and complete management profile.
