Since he owned a Sinclair ZX81 Ilan knew he wants to be a programmer. Which he did with great enthusiasm. Until one day he found that the small company he was working for turned into a big, process-rich, document- hungry mammoth. Programming and software projects were not so much fun anymore. Then he found Agile (or rather Agile found him where he worked). The concept reminded him how much fun software development can be. Today Ilan loves helping hi-tech professionals fall in love with their workplace, so they can help their customers love the products that they make.
Ilan is a co-founder and agile coach at Practical Agile, co-founder at Practical Software, graduate of POCD – Program of Organizational Consulting and Development in Psychoanalytical-Systemic Approach, and a member of OFEK – Israeli Association for the Study of Group and Organizational Processes.
