With Gil's approach to coaching, mentoring, and observing, we've been creating and operating effective cross-functional agile teams in IT, finance, marketing, and risk management. Team members and leaders have the right tools to keep moving forward with our agile transformation.
Gil helped get our Agile journey back on track by refocusing our attention on mindset first, then on the principles and practices that follow. Gil is committed to helping companies practice Agile leadership for the right reasons and, more importantly, achieve better business outcomes as a result.
I strongly recommend Gil to any group looking to transition from trying to "act" Agile to actually embracing and becoming Agile in mindset. We are so glad we flew in people from all over the world to attend the training — definitely worth it 10x over.
Gil did a fantastic job teaching "Pragmatic Scrum". Many participants commented on how much better it was than training which they had received previously, both in substance and in the way Gil delivered it. They came away energized and enthusiastic about applying their learning.
You have a way of bringing to the fore those unspoken subtleties that can make or break an agile endeavor … and you do so in a way that hits home.
In our short consulting session, Gil demonstrated a real talent in understanding people, their motivation and needs, giving valuable feedback and recommendations.
Gil consistently demonstrated creative, expert and empathetic advice, observation and leadership consistent with an approach of high integrity. He brought an appropriate mix of IT expertise, behaviour observations, lean process thinking and ability to start tough conversations to our team.
I left the workshop with both a much better defined framework of what soft skills are needed to grow my team, and techniques to improve those skills.
Our teams responded enthusiastically to the ideas that Gil presented in "Being Agile." With an Agile mind-set, many immediately began re-examining how they were working, with a new sense of freedom and empowerment.
With the perspective of time I am confident in recommending Gil's consulting service to anyone who wants to get a deeper understanding and richer benefits out of working in an Agile way.
Gil helped my team learn and implement Agile engineering. Later, his assistance was vital in providing me with the confidence, knowledge, and skills for becoming an Agile Team Leader... He is an excellent down-to-earth coach and mentor.
I found the information Gil provided invaluable and very well presented. The insights gained in that seminar will change my approach to software development forever.
Gil is an exceptional agile coach and amazing facilitator. His delivery of seminars was well thought out with great exercises that really captured the essence and complexity of real-life situations and yet were condensed and focused.
We were undergoing explosive growth... Gil's ability to discuss the theoretical aspects of agile, combined with practical recommendations on making it all work in practice, and a very deep technical knowledge of software development, is what we needed.
Gil helped us understand why we needed a change and what values, principles, and models aligned to our strategy. He's instilled an Agile mindset in our team, which functions a lot better now, is more engaged, and executes much more effectively.
I've learned from Gil in a group setting with my company, offsite with groups from other companies and one on one. My working understanding of Agile was transformed into an eye opening new approach to my work and my everyday life.
Gil brings an enormously helpful message that companies ignore at their peril if they want to deepen their investment in Agile. He’s experienced in many of the challenges to Agile teams, and resourceful in coaching teams through new challenges.
Gil has been instrumental in raising the bar on the quality of our Agile team's deliverables. Planning and just-in-time decisions/changes are much better balanced, and the team's motivation and attitude have improved significantly.
