"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

"An excellent grounding in the fundamentals of the Scrum methodology and the role of the ScrumMaster in it."

Chuck, Highland Consulting Group

"This course promotes teamwork and the importance of a cross functional team. With this work style, project development becomes almost effortless because the team is no longer working in a silo."

Dennis, OKDHS

"If you are planning on moving to a Scrum/Agile development team you need to begin with this type of training."

Kuenn, Jack and Henry & Associates

"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
