He developed award-winning online & instructor-led training solutions, & managed systems development, implementation, release coordination & deployments with globally-distributed teams.

"This course brought the concepts of Agile/Scrum methodology in an involved way. The presentations were limited to a few slides and the practices discussed were then proven in a way to help us understand them through doing, not simply reading. I enjoyed this class thoroughly and would recommend it to my peers."

Mike, Scientific Research Corporation

"Instructor was very talented in his presentation methods. Not boring! Class activities challenge participants and drive home learning objectives."

Jesse, Scientific Research Corporation

"I believe this class taught me valuable skill as a ScrumMaster. I better understand the Scrum process and roles."

Aubrey Cote, American Mining Insurance Co.

"This is an engaging, hands on class where you actually participate in the Scrum process over two days. You don't sit in a lecture situation for long, as most of the class is interactive. I never got bored, and I've been a ScumMaster for two years already. I would highly recommend this class. Attending along with your product owner, or other ScrumMaster at you organization would be particularly valuable."

Adam, Edgenet, Inc.

"The hands-on exercises, training materials and instructor's knowledge makes this a can't miss training session for those that want to learn Scrum."

Ed, Level 3 Communications
