The Team is made up of five young students from different backgrounds: management, computer engineering, aerospace engineering, UX/UI design. They share common values – such as curiosity, an innovative mindset, high motivation, and strong problem-solving skills.
Despite University commitments, the team managed to achieve the established objectives, effectively managing time and planning activities. One of the fundamental tools that made this possible is the Stand-up Meeting, whose main purpose is setting daily tasks.
Despite being out of my comfort zone (Aerospace Engineering is not really useful when developing Apps), I managed to reinvent my role within the team, trying to respond proactively to challenges appearing during the project – leveraging all my skills to achieve the goals.
By learning and understanding the Agile Method and applying its principles on a weekly and daily basis – such as learning by doing, deliver outputs at short notice, adapt easily to changes and feedbacks.
By researching, collecting, analysing information and discussing it with the company, in order to develop solutions for complex problems and interpret data to gain more insights about the market.
By working in a heterogeneous team from different backgrounds, defining weekly goals and tasks, and improving effective communication and tasks allocation.
By deeply identifying and understanding the underlying issues and then implementing and evaluating the potential solution implementing a plan – through brainstorming, discussion and creative thinking.
By communicating continuously, sharing information during the project development, and providing weekly presentations regarding the team’s results and achievements.
The entire project was carried out by managing three different layers of the solution:
Bonfiglioli is a family-run Italian company, with a global presence in the market of industrial automation, mobile machinery, and wind energy (gearboxes, gearmotors, inverters and electric motors).
The team cooperated with the Bonfiglioli Mechatronic & Motion system unit, with the goal of developing an App for motion control and inverters monitoring. To do so, the team worked on market analysis, data modeling, App development, business idea and model design, and the definition of the pricing strategy.
Momento is an ecosystem that has the ambitious objective of enabling a fluid exchange among the top management of companies and the first generation of digital natives.
The Task Force program is a six-weeks path, divided into training and development, that wants to connect young digital natives with companies to innovate their products and processes.
The Scintille 2021 edition gathered 25 talents, selected from a pool of more than 300 applicants. Grouped in 5 heterogeneous teams, each followed by an Agile Coach and a Company Mentor, they were able to ideate, validate and refine 5 innovative solutions to the firm’s problem statement.
