"Very fun and highly informative. One of the best classes I've ever been a part of."

Kristina, Ingenico

This class helped expand my limited knowledge of Scrum & better explained the role of Product Owner. The class also helped clarify the differences between ScrumMaster and Product Owner.

"The course taught the past two days has been fun and exciting. It sets the framework for our Scrum foundations. While we probably will encounter issues, I believe we are armed with the right knowledge. Thanks."
