Product/Scaling/Agility Advisory: Improve your ability to innovate and create value through pragmatic, focused interventions that leverage lean, agile, and evidence-based management principles, practices, and frameworks.

Yuval Yeret

Welcome to Yeret Agility

I’m Yuval Yeret. As a Product/Scaling/Agility strategic advisor, I help leaders pursue real and pragmatic agility at scale. Leaders reach out to me when looking for ways to improve product development or when they want to apply agile ideas to overall operational excellence and business scaling/improvement.

I thrive in engagements that involve taking a lean, pragmatic path focused on outcomes rather than dogma.

I’m based in Boston, my clients are all over.

Let’s Discuss Your Journey

Why work with me

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 who are 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.

Let’s Discuss Your Journey

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 ( Professional Scrum Trainer – PST)

I’m a contributor to the growth and maturation of Kanban, SAFe, Agile Marketing, Business Agility, and the creation of’s Professional Scrum with Kanban course and guide

My thought leadership in the Scaled Agile Framework world was acknowledged when Scaled Agile designated me as a SAFe Fellow.

Testimonials from my ADVISORY clients

Yuval is a highly experienced agile professional and trainer, a skilled interventionist, and an A+ team player in everything he does. He is highly skilled with clients in bringing his knowledge and intuition to help them meet their goals. Yuval is the best of the best.
It was such a pleasure to work with Yuval. His attention to detail and training program were exactly what we were looking for. He has a way of communicating change in a way that is easy to understand. I absolutely loved working with Yuval and would encourage everyone to work with him. Would absolutely hire him and his company again! Thanks Yuval!
We wanted to explore using agile methodologies within our Biotech environment. Yuval worked with us to produce a full programme of training and implementing / adapting Scrum with Kanban across our entire ecosystem. Yuval was flexible in his approach, spent time discussing specifics and his coaching and subject matter expertise was invaluable. 18 months later and agile is a normal part of how we operate.
Yuval led the agile training at Gillette, which was linked to a major innovation project we were working on (The Exfoliating Razor). The project was on extreme timing and we needed to rethink how to create innovation without sacrificing quality. Yuval trained us on the basics and then consulted with us to help us define the best process. His collaborative, patient, and iterative learning approach was great for our team, which was initially hesitant. His dedication and persistence paid off and enriched the team with a new way of working for future innovation projects. I highly recommend partnering with Yuval on any project where you need to identify new ways of working faster and better.
