Hi, I’m Cris Santamarina,
product manager at genial.ly
I don’t use a particular methodology, but I like the Agile mentality and I believe in doing the simplest thing that could possibly work and continuous improvement over perfection
Over the years I’ve used different tools, such as user personas, customer journeys, KPIs analysis, flow or process diagraming, user story mapping, RACI stakeholders mapping, and even Lego Serious Play.
As a kid, I wanted to be a journalist.
My father’s advice was to learn about something else and write about it instead.
I picked the digital world.
I started as a speaker with my first talk in 2012. I’ve kept this blog since 2015. Later on I started a podcast and a youtube channel.

I am a learner, but also a teacher: I enjoy internal trainings and talks, and I’ve been invited to universities like Deusto, Esade, Loyola…
More than 50k professionals from companies like Repsol or AT&T completed my courses in LinkedIn Learning.
