“I really appreciated the engaging format of the course. I’m a former classroom teacher, and I hate how professional development courses tend to have zero concept of instructional design. But it’s clear you all put a lot of thought into the design and presentation of this course, and it was amazing! Thank you!”

“Great content and a really good explanation about scrum”
– Anonymous

“This course was an eye-opener for me on how much impact on productivity a proper implementation of scrum can have. I have been a developer on many dev teams over the years which claim to implement scrum, and had noticed how process differences vastly impact the success of the team. Not surprisingly, the teams I was on which implemented scrum more closely to how it should be (which is what this course teaches) were far more successful than the teams which were vaguely scrum-inspired. I feel empowered to enact some incremental process changes within my current team.”
– Mike Landers

“Course was great! Course agenda was thorough to the goal of instructing for Scrum Master Certification (CSM). Class sessions were guided well with mix of Brett’s instruction, class breakout rooms/exercises, shared documents, and sample quizzes / test for learning reinforcement. Thank you Brett for your class content and delivery!”
– David S., Program Manager, QC Holdings Inc.

“Its really great”
– Thalleswar Maddu, Sr Technical Manager, Tech Mahendra

 

Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) – October 3-4, 2020

“My company rolled out Agile and after using it for 4 months, I felt I was more confused over the process than ever. My work quality started to go downhill due to all the time spent on trying to understand the overall process and I started feeling overwhelmed and at times, anxious.

I decided to take the CSM course to find out what Agile was about by experts who have seen Agile deployed from various companies. More importantly, I wanted an unbiased opinion.

By taking this course, I was able to figure out where my pain-points were and why. I discussed this with my Scrum Master and Coach and was able to get a better understanding on why our processes were structured the way they were. I was able to recommend certain changes that would lift a lot of the frustration from myself and other team members as well as the Scrum Leads. Tweaking a couple of processes will help us communicate better within our team and across teams, work within reasonable hours and work more cohesively to produce high quality successful deliverables.”
– Vanessa Russell
