Excellent Agile course. Bruce was an awesome facilitator. It was a 360˚ view about Agile, PO, Scrum, Kanban and how all roles can help ensure work gets completed. Excellent Agile techniques. Good classroom size.
It was a great course, probably the best one I've done at work. Robert and John were engaging and fun facilitators and the activities were awesome.
Bruce was a wealth on knowledge and facilitated the course to suit all learning styles. You know when a course is A+ when you walk away with so many new tools, understanding of the Agile approach and a brain full of new ideas.
The course content is very detailed and informative. The presenters/trainers make sure that the trainees/attendees are educated, as well as entertained during the course. The sessions are fun, collaborative and interactive.
I would definitely recommend Fundamentals of Agile. I enjoyed it for several reasons – first, the way the information has been presented to us – lots of workshops, interactions, interesting videos, relaxed but intense conversations.
Robert taught us how to start thinking with the Agile mindset through a well-thought-out lesson plan that used interactive activities to solidify our learning. We were also given the right tools to start implementing Agile in non-software situations.
I've been to a few courses. The ones I have attended at Assurity are next level. Engaging, thought provoking and purposely set in a comfortable environment to maximise learning. 10/10.
Assurity's Fundamentals of Agile course brought the Agile mindset to me and not just the theory. The course taught me how to apply the values and principles to the business.
Even though this course was delivered online, it was no less of an experience than being delivered in a classroom. Bruce is a skilled facilitator who did justice to the subject and made our learning fun at the same time.
Jacob is excellent with good pace. Remote is ideal for nationwide diversity and focus levels, content is relevant, scenarios are true. Four half-days are perfect. Really well run – A++.
Real-life examples and lots of practice made the content much easier to understand and to relate with. The way Jacob explained the concepts was amazing.
The Scrum course was excellent, a great intro to the Scrum framework. Jacob was a great facilitator, very knowledgeable and had some brilliant real-life examples.
I had my doubts doing this workshop online. However, I enjoyed the pace, content, the activities. Bruce is a great storyteller. I really enjoy his sharing of examples that relates to the topic at hand.
Assurity provided a fantastic learning environment, expert instructor and well-planned course activities which reinforced the learning. Both informative and fun.
I really like the way they teach with so many examples and interactiveness.
A fantastic course. Highly recommend. I particularly liked the practical exercises to embed the learning. I've taken away a number of tools and techniques that will certainly improve the delivery from, and experience for my team.
Great content and facilitation of the course. Both Bruce and Chardi were knowledgeable and clarified all queries and also provided real-life project examples.
Fantastic course with a great facilitator. Course had a great pace but there was still the opportunity for discussion.
Assurity facilitators challenge me to challenge myself. Refreshment comes in the form of practising exposing my authentic self to people I've never met before.
Just completed the PSM course with Jacob Creech and it was excellent. I didn't know what it was going to be like via Zoom but Jacob created a lovely vibe and we all bonded and had a great experience while learning lots.
Great facilitators that could read the room, keep a great pace, give good, real-life examples and kept the room engaged.
The facilitators were great, lots of humour, engaging and read the audience well. The content was well-structured and the perfect mix of theory, practical and discussion.
Experienced trainer, excellent examples, responsive style and course format broken down well to apply to future work.
This course was very informative and I learned a lot of new tools that I can immediately use at the work I do. The presenters did an astounding job! They were fun and experienced constantly sharing some very good real life examples. What worked really well that it was two of them.
Michael Bolton presented a great training course. Would recommend it to all testers. Venue was good and catering was excellent.
RST is likely the most awesome course for software testing. Assurity provided great venue and food.
The Rapid Software Testing course was great. The presenter was very knowledgeable, fun and interesting. It was inspiring to connect with other testers and I found the whole experience very worthwhile. Thanks!
The course exceeded my expectations in both presentation and content. The presenter (Jacob) has a depth of experience in the field and was able to understand and explain the concepts across many different working environments.
The course was extremely informative, presented in a way that encompassed multiple learning styles (visual, auditory, kinetic etc) which helped me take everything onboard. The information provided was extremely valuable and relevant to me day-to-day work.
Great service when I enquired about the course, excellent learning space, ideal sized class, knowledgeable and friendly trainer, dynamic use of different learning techniques which appealed to different learning styles, and enabled us to put what we were learning into action.
Powerful, impactful delivery that really hit the mark with the audience. We learnt with little effort and the day went quickly. At the end, there was a lot of talk about how we can adopt these principles and it truly inspired the participants.
A really good mixture of practical activities and video examples. Kept our attention and engagement for two days which is not always easy on a training course. Was really fun.
Good mix of theory, practical activities and videos. Facilitators had great energy and knowledge.
Awesome content and variety of delivery, course structure, practical exercises and presenters and presentation. One of the best courses I have ever attended. It seemed very current and delivery embodied the subject. Perfect!
Excellent course, well-constructed and great facilitator. Course was sufficiently flexible to allow participants to incorporate real-world examples/questions. Right combination of theory and practice – learned a great deal.
The course was very interactive and provided tangible and useful tools to be used in our BAU. Marcella provided clear examples and ran great activities to help us understand the concept. A great coach.
Excellent course, well constructed and great facilitator. Course was sufficiently flexible to allow participants to incorporate real-world examples/questions. Right combination of theory and practice. Learned a great deal.
The content was relevant and applicable to my role. The facilitators set the foundations well and fostered sharing throughout. Overall the course provided an interactive and personal experience as we were able to use real-life scenarios and leverage others experiences too.
This is a well-designed training course, not only for Product Owner practitioners but also for any professional looking for improving working practices.
The course was interactive with great hands-on activities to help absorb the information. The information was of high-quality and extremely relevant.
Highly informative and practical learning activities which helps you learn how to apply Agile into any piece of work (including outside of employment), all without feeling like it's information overload.
Well-paced, excellent participation and engagement, slick facilitation and useable reference/course material.
I chose Assurity because there were very limited offerings around Agile Project Management and the course content was very appealing. The learning outcomes very fantastic, Bruce is very knowledgeable and was absolutely brilliant to have as our facilitator.
The course was fantastic! So much so, that I would love to do the next level – Agile Coaching.
Great delivery and energy during both days. Have already recommended that course specifically to several other people.
An incredible amount of learning packed into a short time. Weeks and months after the course, I'm still thinking back to what was discussed and using it in my everyday life. Not just work skills but life skills!
The Agile Facilitator course I attended was one of the most useful and productive training courses I have ever been on. Jacob was an amazing facilitator and the volume of learning materials and experiences shared over the two days was incredibly useful to me in my day-to-day role/work.
Jacob, the presenter, was highly skilled with practical experience in all the topics. The answer to every question was followed up by a real-life example. Everybody had the possibility to learn a lot while having fun.
Very full-on two days, lots of good skills and tricks taught in the course about Scrum. Enjoy the real life experiences Jacob shared with the class.
Well-structured course. Lots of interesting content. Great energy in the presentation... it's very rare to attend a 3-day course and stay engaged end to end, but I had absolutely no difficulty doing this. Really really impressed.
Life-changing for budding BAs.
It was really insightful, inspirational to hear real-life examples and I learned a lot.
The training aligned with what I see as an industry-must for organisations. It filled in a lot of gaps in my knowledge and had until now been unable to fill through personal research. The delivery from Allen in particular was excellent.
The course was engaging and presented in a way that made what could be quite a 'dry' topic interesting and memorable. It has left me with lots of ideas and thoughts around how I can use this information.
It was a good introduction to a complex process in a short timeframe. Good variety of exercises and activities.
Very interactive teaching methods. Instructors are very knowledgeable about the course material and were always ready to answer questions or discuss content further.
Excellent pace and targeted subject matter to the actual attendees. Tutor was knowledgeable, not just theoretically, but also with huge backlog of real-life experience.
Great facilitators who are able to demonstrate how you might apply the content and can go much deeper across a range of components. A real focus on ensuring you get what you need from the course.
The content is highly relevant and to the point. The training isn't just listening to theory, you get (really) involved in exercises which teach you HOW to actually use the ideas and techniques. The teachers are knowledgeable, experienced and enthusiastic.
Bruce maintained a great level of energy throughout. I very much appreciated some of the tools that were taught such as User Story Mapping. I particularly appreciated the exercises where we practised the production of a new product.
The facilitators were excellent – knew their stuff, well prepared, good at facilitation, personable. The content was relevant, interesting and comprehensive. The approach worked well; hands-on practical and shared experiences are good pedagogical approaches.
Enjoyed a good mix of practical exercises and discussion. Jacob clearly knows his stuff.<br />
Encouraged to 'change the world' one step at a time.
Excellent trainers, lots of tools explained and demonstrated, good materials, lots of practice.
The instructors kept us very engaged and offered multiple modes of learning. They created an incredibly safe space for us to 'fail' and try new things. They were incredibly knowledgeable and able to provide us with insightful and detailed answers to any questions.
The material and presenter were extremely engaging. I am new to Scrum. Well done. I am really excited now to enter the Scrum world.
Loved each and every bit of the course. Very well-designed and executed.
Jacob had a great manner with the class and explained and illustrated concepts well. The content was well-structured and engaging.
Very interesting and engaging course. Lots of real-world applications and scenarios were given to reinforce the learning.
Exceeded my expectations. Knowledgeable, confident facilitator and lucky to have a good collaborative bunch on the course with me.
The course was great because it was delivered by people who are familiar with our organisation and they tailored the discussions, examples etc to how we are currently working.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, the trainer was excellent and I felt totally at ease to involve myself with the team activities. Definitely very enlightening. I will recommend the course to my peers and definitely pick Assurity for future courses.
The course flowed well, the content was good and Jacob was a great presenter with lots of experience.
Trainers were brilliant, collaborative, supportive, created a safe environment and demonstrated what being a great facilitator is!
Fraser and Bruce were excellent teachers who were really passionate about the subject and able to adapt as we provided feedback (e.g. speed up the pace, include real-life examples, etc). Good sized class and really interactive. I got a lot out of it.
Great facilitation by Bruce. Loved the fact that there was sufficient time to discuss content and interaction to assist with learning. Bruce also took the time to explain stuff in breaks which really helped.
The course addressed all the questions I had around Agile and its concepts. It validated my preferences on how I have been working with teams that are practical, pragmatic, collaborative and fit for purpose approaches to delivery which creates continuous improvement and change.
The course really has incentivised me to keep practising the mindset and principles that I continue to adapt and adjust for new environments and situations I go into. I’m really keen to take it to the next level and keep learning.
The course content was extremely relevant. The exercises enabled us to get a better understanding of how the Agile mindset delivered greater results.
The content was really good. The presenter was excellent and kept the momentum. The learning outcome was exceptional.
The course was well presented, the material covered at the right level for an entry level course for both those brand new to the concepts and those with some knowledge both taking away learnings.
The trainer knew his domain and was able to share his passion for the topic with humour and professionalism. I feel well prepared for the exam and will be in a better position to aim for this kind of role in the future.
The course material was delivered fantastically in a way that worked for everyone from daily DevOps users to those who didn't know what it was. The trainers were wonderful and enthusiastic about the course and the content and made the training very engaging.
An exceptional course in understanding more than just the technical aspects of how DevOps is applied. The 'why' was valuable but also it enabled me to see how cultural change is needed when looking at traditional infrastructure operational teams.
Carefully constructed, well delivered and clearly evidenced as a living, breathing exemplar!
I found the course well run and Bruce facilitated the two days very well. It was very engaging with a good mix of learning combined with practical exercises.
The course was well run, respected all our learning styles and gave a good opportunity for reflection and collaboration.
Bruce and Fraser are very well-versed in Agile and great at answering curve ball questions on the fly in clear and practical ways. Great comprehensive course, especially condensing it into two days. Highly commendable!
It was a well-run, focused training session. Even though I have been a Prod Owner for a while, I still learnt new tips and tricks and got info out of it. I came out more empowered to do the tasks I need to in an often challenging role.
The instructors not only created a really relaxing and friendly environment, but also helped us understand how the Agile model could be applied in our field. The task allocation game was the highlight of the day. Love to see the impact of Agile in a real-life scenario!
The BVA course was professionally delivered with a lot of invaluable learnings, yet at a flexible pace with more in-depth discussions answered comprehensively. It was the best experience I have had attending a course.
I think it was an incredible course. My only improvement for a 10/10 would be having the course somewhere hot and sunny!
Really useful and practical course, delivered in a super engaging way. Lots of interactive learning activities with a wealth of additional materials provided.
I had a very good experience which helped me to put together into a usable structure my Agile knowledge. Bruce is an excellent educator. I've enjoyed the course and find it incredibly useful and beneficial.
Awesome content, great environment, professional friendly lecture, relevant work examples.
The feedback (on Better Software Development) has been overwhelmingly positive both with the content and how it was presented. People are keen to adopt this way of working. Now I just need to maintain the momentum.
Ceedee was a top-notch facilitator!! One of the best I've ever had. The course content was practical and interactive which kept me constantly engaged... For someone with a short attention span, that's saying something!
Presenter (Ceedee) had hands-on experience and clearly articulated the 'Fundamentals of Agile'. It was the perfect balance of presenting and interactive participation.
Very good course. The pace was good for someone that had very little knowledge of Agile. We covered a lot of content and the activities were very relevant. I really enjoyed Bruce's facilitation style.
It was perfect, exactly what I needed. Purists of Agile believe that you don't need Agile Project Managers in Agile. However, in NZ, it is clearly otherwise. Agile and Digital PMs need to do this course.
This is hands down the best course I've been on. Every part of it was beneficial to me in my role and I will definitely be back for more. Also very well facilitated by Ceedee.
