Payment industry SME // 03
The payment industry world looks small if one knows nothing, huge if one knows a bit and exciting if one work there for more than 15 years.
It changes but keeps the standards. It is sometimes chaotic but very heavily regulated, yes, yes MLD5, PSD2 GDPR you name it. Complicated business models on a simple drive – people buy and sell by using money.
I can assist in evaluating business options and give counsel to the top management and the boards as payments SME.
The complexity of business relations and various costs distribution structures require not only business knowledge but operation and IT skills as well.

Specialists and their bright ideas are the most valuable assets you can get. Project board, Project manager, Customer, User and Supplier are all the human resources you need.
Prince2 and ITIL will get you all it values. We practice a hands-on approach and we are focused on getting the job done.

Product Owner // 04
Product owner role gets to be super important in the Agile world.
Sometimes Product owner is supported by Business analysts, Lawyers, SME experts for specific field like payments. But it also happens that Product owner has to do all the things on his/her own, and guess what, Product owners also humans and it happens they need to take maternity or paternity leave.
Do not get panic, but get in touch! I can give a hand to your product owner when it comes to cards payments, PSD2, FinTech strategy etc., or become complete back up for a few month.
Yes, I will take care of your backlog and make sure Jira and Confluence stay in order.
