Market Leaders Choose AgileSparks
"Almost everything we learned is useful to us. I especially liked the ideas around "minimal viable product" as well as the story boarding exercises. Roni was super, she understood what we need and how to help us get there and made sure we are all focused and aligned. Very well done"
Yael is one of those persons that manage to be at the same time part of the team and a consultant to the team. She managed to construct the change process in a way that allowed practices to "stick" by helping people to adopt them as their own.
Yael's ability to quickly understand the organization, the product and our specific needs was a key factor in helping us become agile and better react to the needs/requirements of Clarizen's SaaS customers.
Excellent agile workshops. Energizing, Interesting, Adapted to dbMotion's world. Thank you Sagi!
The switch to Kanban (and a single branch methodology with feature bits) could not have happened without putting the R&D leads, product owners and me on the same page. This, in turn, could not have happened without the workshop we had with Yuval Yeret.
- After several years of using Scrum at Ginger Software we felt we were ready to move on to the next level. Yuval helped us kick off a transition to Kanban extremely effectively. After three concise, highly professional and fun hands-on sessions together we were on our way and have been successfully using Kanban ever since and gradually spreading it across the rest of the organization.
By having Yuval on board we found not just an experienced professional but also a partner to our Lean journey with a passion and commitment to coach and escort us until we achieve our goals. Yuval’s vast knowledge and experience along with good analytic skills enables 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 one on one coaching for tough cases. This makes Yuval very valuable and very influential in our journey towards Lean.
- Time To Knowoutstanding leadership, presentation and professional skills. We are very satisfied from the results.
With the help of AgileSparks (Yuval Yeret) we implemented a Kanban system at NICE that enabled us achieve significant improvement in efficiency, winning together, work atmosphere, quality, and client focus. Yuval and AgileSparks are professionals of the highest standards, and I strongly recommend anybody considering Agile/Lean to work with them.
We decided to move to Agile after experiencing many challenges in our waterfall process. To name a few, we suffered from long development cycles, almost no flexibility to change the plan and lack of synchronization between R&D and Product Management. We turned to AgileSpark to help us make the move. We started up with a course that demonstrated the principles of Agile development using games and role plays and other activities making it both effective and fun. After the course we started exercising Scrum ceremonies. Our coach joined the ceremonies and gave tips to teams, product owners, Scrum masters and managers. We got many benefits from moving to Scrum and I can say that the move was fast and successful and has apparent effect on our products. We are now releasing much more frequently and communication between Product Management and R&D has improved dramatically. No doubt that AgileSparks had main contribution to this successful move. Today we value Agile as a core competitive advantage; we therefore are not willing to disclose our company's name. Agile is our Secret Weapon!

Devops is a combination of culture principles and tools that both aim to break the conflict between Dev and Ops silos by leveraging Lean and Agile thinking and practices at a wider scope than just the development and testing process.

Kanban is a flow-oriented method for working in a lean/agile way. Kanban is often used in continuous/flow environments such as Lean Startup, DevOps, Continuous Deployment or when a more evolutionary style of change management is desired.
Agile Marketing helps marketing organizations become faster, more flexible/responsive and more collaborative in order to be better tuned to the business they’re supporting.
