"It met my expectations and taught the elements of Scrum, focusing on the Scrum Master role, but in unexpected and innovative ways."

Steve, GE Energy

"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

"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

"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

"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
