I spent the first half of my career leading IT and product development – especially in teams focused on operating systems and networks.
While I half-joke that we were practicing DecSecOps in the Israeli Air Force way back in the 90s, my first formal exposure to Agile was in 2006 – when my organization was struggling to get its act together.
I learned about Scrum and Kanban, and we leveraged them to improve our ability to build a quality, valuable product and improve our time to market.
I realized that figuring out how to apply agile techniques to help stabilize and scale product/IT organizations was something I was good at and passionate about – and I essentially pivoted from the field of computer operating systems to human/organizational operating systems.
I’ve had the privilege to collaborate with world-class thought leaders in this space and helped leading technology companies, future and current unicorns, and future-leaning IT organizations improve their ability to innovate, their time to market, and the value they create for their customers.
