Here is a what our past participants are saying!

“Awesome. Very engaging.”  -- Shavaughn Swain


“Course was very interactive and engaging. It was great having an instructor with such a breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm for Scrum/Agile with no hidden agendas or slant toward any software products. Brad's style is very approachable, informative, and was more like a coach helping us to learn by first providing the information, then using activities to help reinforce what we just learned. I would recommend this course and instructor to anyone needing CSPO certification for a job or just to increase their understanding of Scrum/Agile.” – Mary Trotter


“Great and informative course. Really enjoyed the practice of creating a product and going through the stages of story mapping, writing user stories, and creating a backlog.” – Shawn McCarty, Business Analyst
