Aubrey Cote, American Mining Insurance Co.

"The CSM class is essential to teach key concepts, practices and methodologies for utilizing/implementing Scum methodologies in my job function. As a PM, it helps me think about how to adapt project execution in a manner that best serves the team and customer."

Vijay, Tractor Supply

"I would highly recommend this course to someone who is interested in learning more about Scrum and would like to bring Scrum into their business. The instructor was great at keeping the interest of the participants and teaching hands-on."

Mary, Agri-Tech Services

"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

"The CSM class is extremely important to adjust the project management mindset into that of a ScrumMaster whose fundamental values shift from management to servant leadership."

Ayaz, Nielsen
