"This would have to be the best course I've ever attended for several reasons. The content was spot on for me and covered what I needed it to cover. Bruce was an excellent trainer he was able to articulate the content in a way that was easily understood and particularly helped along with all the practical exercises. I also appreciate the offer of support after the course. And of course the food was delicious."

"The course was engaging and with the training Product Owners get clarity on Agile thinking and clarifies differentiation between KANBAN and Scrum. Also, the valuation techniques taught/ practiced during the course are very useful and can help in different nature of projects that vary in businesses."
