Testimonials from my consulting clients

Yuval helped me bring the science and mindset of agile into the Biotech world. He advised me and my team on how to operationalize the agile best practices and apply them pragmatically and practically to our unique context – with a focus on transparency, empiricism, shared understanding, and empowerment. Yuval brings a wealth of experience across many industries and is a real partner in our journey.
By having Yuval on board, we found not just an experienced professional but also a partner in our lean journey with a passion and commitment to coach and guide us until we achieve our goals. Yuval’s vast knowledge and experience along with keen analytical skills enable him to fit the lean principles into our organization’s DNA and to help us overcome difficulties and constraints without risking our short-term business targets. Yuval has many capabilities which make him highly versatile. He can swiftly move from strategy/blueprints to training a class, implementing methods/processes all the way to helping us through some tough issues through hands-on coaching. This makes Yuval very valuable and influential in our journey towards lean.”
Yuval is the best Lean/Agile partner I have ever worked with. Over the 2+ years of our working relationship, he has consistently brought a pragmatic and refreshingly direct approach to problem-solving, coaching, and training. He leans in, and rather than prescribing a canned academic/textbook solution, he works with us to truly understand our core problems and then prescribes a tailored solution that works best for us. We have measured significant improvements in schedule adherence, quality, and customer satisfaction. The results have been dramatic. In addition to working with our core development teams, Yuval has presented Lean/Agile fundamentals to senior executives within my organization and customers who participate in our Customer Advisory Board meetings. He is a no-nonsense straight-talker, and I unconditionally recommend him to anyone serious about agile transformation.
When I asked, “Who should guide us through our Agile journey?” “Yuval” was the reply, followed by the reasons. What I have experienced has been consistent. Yuval is knowledgeable and guides you by asking the right questions at the right time to get you and your team thinking. He has a knack for identifying the missing concepts and language and getting us to talk about those in such a way that we can improve how we work together. Most consultants tell you the answer; Yuval asks the right questions so you find the answer yourself.
