On November 21st was held the third edition of our Agile Finance meeting. Agile Finance seeks to bring together IT professionals working in the financial field to form a community of interest and foster exchanges. More than 60 people were gathered during this event to hear our guest speakers and panelists. Two Agile coaches from Pyxis, Nathalie Desautels and Jesus Mendez were in charge of hosting the evening.

Panel and conference

A panel composed of a Morgan Stanley team shared the difficulties encountered with Agile management approaches. Philippe Assani, Dimitri Tiago, Benjamin Anton, Rida Elhoury and Wumo Pan told us about the different challenges they had to face.

Subsequently, James Lapalme of ÉTS presented the conference: “Adoption issues: Separate consequences, causes and symptoms!” which was a return on the previous discussion in order to offer plausible explanations to the issues of this team (as well as teams in general).


Many thanks to our Main Sponsor Finance Montreal, our Gold Sponsor Alten Canada and our Silver sponsors CGI and Morgan Stanley.

Thanks to our Pyxis coaches for their presence at the event (Luc St-Laurent, Julien B. Saucier, Nathalie Desautels and Jesus Mendez). We also thank our two Agile Finance ambassadors Morgan Stanley’s Guillaume Bertin and Christian Dubé of PSP Investments for initiating this project.
