"Scrum is a complex process and a large mindset change. This course made a huge difference in overcoming those challenges."

Kevin, H&R Block

I arrived with a good understanding of Scrum and still found the course tremendously valuable. They did a great job of providing a great value for all skill levels.

Karl, Guthy-Renker

"This course was very hands on and encouraged learning through exercises and interaction rather than just reviewing materials. This was one of the more engaging courses I've participated in."

Brian, H&R Block

"Action packed two day course with lots of workshops to understand concepts better."

Balagee, Source Medical

The CSPO class was very educational and engaging for new and experienced POs alike. Many real world examples and hands on activities were used that made relating the lessons taught to my work at home very easy. I left class energized and motivated to begin instituting culture change with my team.
