INTEGRAL AGILE applies Agile models through an integral lens, giving us a broader and deeper picture of the dozens of variables that are currently impacting the health of organizations across the world, many of which are not addressed at all by current methodologies.
We employ the best of what current frameworks have to offer (Safe, LeSS, Spotify, DA, etc.) tailored to the specific needs of each group within any organization and tie them together by creating holistic relationships between them using our Integral Approach.
We needed to complete was the reorganization of large component teams into smaller self managing, cross-functional, feature teams. Once we had our cross functional feature teams it became important that they learnt to work with each other.
Co-Founder & CEO
Leor Herzfeld is a former artist & designer turned Agile Coach, and was the driving force behind the creation of the Integral Agile Approach. He is passionate about providing next-generation collaboration tools that optimize organizational design with a focus on creating reusable capabilities and enabling flow.
Leor’s approach to Agile Transformation is best understood using metaphors that communicate how matter, energy and systems arise and operate in the natural universe, requiring a scientist’s mind to fully understand and an artist’s mind to fully implement.
He has driven large organizational transformations and product launches across the financial and educational industries.
Co-Founder & CTO
David Hersey coaches organizations ranging from Fortune 50 enterprises to communities and startups.
He is passionate about forming values-aligned teams between and within departments to help them learn and work together in the service of a common shared vision of success.
David’s Agile career began in the late 1990s when as a member of the Smalltalk developer community he began experimenting with technical practices such as test-driven development and continuous integration. He was an early advocate of XP and Scrum and has been coaching teams and organizations in Agile practices for 20+ years.
David has seen that scaling Agile frequently results in a larger process, but does not always enable organizations to tap into the power of agility at scale. Agility at scale requires an Integral Approach, focusing on processes and tools as well as individual values, culture, and the relationships within and between teams, businesses, and leadership.

Julio is bedeviled by the inner demons of efficiency, "adventurelust", humor, and that uniquely seductive torment that can only be suffered by joining along with people who are trying to better themselves and their world.
Iterations of his previous lives can be filed under social work, web development and business management, which together chart an atypical journey towards building healthier businesses (mostly by executing more strategic marketing through the building of creative content and more meaningful connections with clients, stakeholders and team members).
The true story of Julio's life chronicles an effort to help companies and individuals tell their very real stories by day, while at night, excising his demons through his own stories about very fictional lives.
