What Our Students Are Saying

“[Instructor] did a wonderful job of presenting the content in a consumable, relatable and entertaining way. The case study examples that we walked through helped me to see how the scrum framework can be applied to everyday scenarios as well as a scrum team environment. I learned so much and I also feel prepared for the exam as well as to step into a scrum master role in the near future.”

“The materials were useful, and [instructor] was excellent! Particularly helpful was the way he asked probing questions and engaged the participants in role-play. There was also a nice balance of humor to even out the seriousness of the content. He made a large amount of dense content manageable and understandable.”

“Such a spectacular experience of getting an in-depth formalization of the Scrum Master role. [Instructor] was able to give the group real world experiences and the knowledge to attempt the PSM. Plenty of challenging activities and lots of interaction among the students.”
