Adam Yuret has been working in the software development business for over 17 years. He helps executives discover ways to amplify value delivered to customers by reducing painful impediments which get in the way of people doing their best work. This often means untangling unclear strategy articulation from founders head to the teams, advising on optimal organization design, and helping clear up and train staff on their role definitions (with Agile). Although no “Adam engagement” is typical, he has recently led coaching teams helping clients such as Crate and Barrel and Tableau, coherently introduce Agile throughout the organization (from founders to teams); his focus: helping their people to thrive while growing and innovating into the future.
