Rachel has 20 years of comprehensive experience in leading positions in product management, project management, software development and operations.
She served in a variety of executive positions, at both startups and large companies such as Seebo (IoT), Powermat (Wireless Charging), Msystems/Sandisk (Disk-on-key based systems), Telmap (Mobile Navigation applications), Selis (IT), Alchemedia (Security), and more.
She became passionate about Agile methodologies and Scrum when she was Director of PMO (Project management office) at Telmap and was challenged with ever changing plans, and Gantts that could not last for more than 2 days due to frequent high volume pressure from customers. Rachel knew there had to be a better way. She did a CSM certification, followed by a CSP certification, and became the change advocate in Telmap. With Haim Deutsch’s mentorship, she implemented Scrum and trained the teams in a multi site-multi-national RnD organization. The result was a total transformation in product delivery, team synchronization, customer satisfaction, predictability, accountability, team ownership and mostly on-time-delivery at a very high quality.
Rachel became a strong advocate for Agile methodologies and since then initiated and led the transformation of the development methodology at both Powermat and Seebo, where she served as VP Product.
She is an expert in the transformation and implementation process, and due to her wide experience in several verticals in delivery organizations, including development, project and product management, she is able to lead such a change with minimum objections and maximum satisfaction by all stakeholders – Management, employees and customers alike.
