Paul Mattal – Director of Network Systems at Akamai Technologies

Yuval helped us launch a scaled agile implementation in our group of 100 at Akamai. He ran custom in-house Leading SAFe training for us and guided a value stream identification and realization strategic workshop. Several of us also attended Yuval’s Scrum Product Owner and Scrum Master courses to improve our Agile basics.

Yuval was a clear and effective instructor. He covered a lot of substantive material quickly in an interactive way that helped it make sense and stick. His tech leadership background was essential in helping us understand how to apply Agile and SAFe within our specific business and technical contexts. Always encouraging us to return to the Agile principles and think flexibly, he prepared us to embark on a successful Agile journey that involved constant inspection, reflection, and adjustment. Four years later, our implementation is tuned, allowing our teams to achieve much more than was possible before, with a higher level of transparency and collaboration with organizational and portfolio management. I highly recommend Yuval for Agile or scaled Agile teaching, coaching, or assistance anywhere on your Agile journey!
