“The course was absolutely amazing. I had heard of Scrum and “done it” for several years, but this course truly enlightened me to what it means and how to apply it in my day-to-day job. The conversations were really stimulating and the exercises really engaging. I cannot recommend this course enough!”

Jonathan Neumann
Solution Architect

“This is an interactive course giving both an overview of the theory of scrum/agile, and scenarios and approaches for implementation. Going beyond the exam the course also offers a focus for what this can offer to the individual, their teams and ultimately their organisation. I would recommend.”

Jackie Rixson
Account Director

“Tobias is a great coach whose obvious belief in, and passion for, the Scrum process is infectious. “

James Simpson

“I thoroughly enjoyed my two days of Scrum Master training with Evelyn Tian. She was a fantastic, enthusiastic and passionate teacher who clearly knows a lot about Scrum methodology and frameworks. I feel very prepared to be going onto a project soon where Scrum will be used, and one day with more experience, even acting as a Scrum Master myself “
