• Biase De Gregorio

    As a proudly South African and 1st generation Italian, I am an extremely passionate person. Not only passionate about football (soccer), food and travel, but also passionate about learning and sharing my experiences and knowledge with others. My greatest achievement (other than my family) are not those personal career milestones, but seeing change in people that I work or have worked with through the impact that either my team or I have had on that individual’s career or life journey. I strive to create an environment of safety for my family, team, customers and organisations that I work in.

    As a Partner and head of the Agility offering at IQbusiness since 2012, I have built an amazing team of Agile consultants that share a common purpose of continuous learning and continuous improvement. Together with the team, we have trained close to 7000 people on Agile topics and been involved in some of the largest Agile transformations in financial services industry. Our focus is on improving the speed and quality of delivery across the organisation’s value chain with the goal of improved customer experience, improved productivity and efficiency and improved return on investment - #GESHIDO

  • Josi Borrageiro

    A South African born, third generation Madeiran married to a South African Italian with two wonderful children.  Our boys are both studying engineering at the University of Cape Town. A family person at heart with a passion for all types of sport and the great outdoors. 

    As a member of the IT executive at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange for 20 of my 37-year tenure, I established new or contributed to the change of capabilities, competencies, and people in support of the digital transformation. From green initiatives to reduce paper consumption, the creation and migration to an electronic share register and share certificates, the transition from the open outcry Exchange floor to Electronic and automated trading, and ultimately high frequency trading, Colocation, and the merger and acquisition of the SA Futures and Bond Exchanges into the JSE. These step changes have demanded a constant focus on efficiency and innovation, which ignited the passion within me as the Strategic Enterprise Architect and leader of Lean-Agile-change, effective problem solving and organisational strategic execution, alignment, and sustainability.

     

    I transitioned into the next phase of my career, after successfully initiating and leading the Agile and DevOps @ scale transformation initiative at the JSE. I joined the IQbusiness Agility team as an Agile Consultant after obtaining my Scaled Agile Program Consultant certification in Amsterdam. With this in hand, I am actively participating in and driving scaled agile transformation and people development interventions and programs for the financial, insurance, telecoms, and retail industries. In line with a continuous learning culture, respect, empowerment and courage, incremental growth in people and workforce are front and centre for me, as they are essential for an organisation’s growth and delivery of customer value.
