Improve your ability to innovate and create value through pragmatic, focused interventions leveraging lean and agile principles, practices, and frameworks.
Welcome to Yeret Agility
I’m Yuval Yeret. As an agility coach/consultant/trainer, I help leaders pursue real and pragmatic agility at scale. Leaders reach out to me when looking for ways to improve product development as well as when they want to apply agile ideas towards overall operational excellence and business scaling/improvement.
The engagements I thrive in involve taking an agile, pragmatic path to an agile organization. I’m based in Boston. My clients are all over.
Why work with me
As an Agile expert/consultant/trainer, I’ve worked in many different organizations and contexts – from startups through unicorns to enterprises. My unique (almost unfair) advantage?
1. Deep expertise in a variety of lean/agile approaches
2. Pragmatic flexible application to different contexts with a strategic view towards intent rather than a mechanic implementation
3. Ability to create powerful mashups and new practices built on solid principles
After some reflection, I realized that I’m in my “zone” when I’m partnering with leaders looking for ways to leverage agile/agility in the broader sense to deal with some of the hard wicked challenges of either product development or company growth/transformation.
We tackle these challenges like the best teams develop products. We leverage fast learning cycles when defining and deploying change in the organization’s operations. I help leaders create empowered teams that operate with strategic clarity. We overcome silos using cross-functional networks of teams. You might say it’s all about trying to operate like a startup, even after you’re a scaleup or an enterprise. Or it’s like applying modern product development approaches to build/develop the company/organization.
I focus on achieving strategic outcomes, not implementing buzzwords.
Our engagement will start with a Strategy Workshop exploring your WHY, helping you figure out the WHAT and HOW that makes sense in your context with an eye towards a minimum effective dose / viable change that will serve as the basis for inspection and adaptation cycles.
I find that the key to effectively scaling an organization is to create a team architecture/topology that minimizes the need for coordination.
I help leaders organize their teams around value streams, products, and business processes in a way that creates empowered autonomous teams with clear sight to making an impact on the business.
Only then do we apply the scaling practices that make sense in the context.
I’m the only individual worldwide with the highest accreditation levels in both the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe Fellow/SPCT) and Scrum (Scrum.org Professional Scrum Trainer – PST)
My thought leadership in the Scaled Agile Framework world was acknowledged when Scaled Agile designated me as a SAFe Fellow.
