TestimonialS

The Product Owner course was a great 2 days, Greg was interactive giving us theory and explaining the practical application of it. I would really recommend this course.

Angie Davies
Vodacom

Whilst the vision, outcome and deadline is clear. The route to the solution is less so… We have over 15 talented, senior leaders sure that thesolution needs to be tailored to their own departments requirements. We are debating the solution and approach ad nauseum, whilst making limited progress

Well facilitated training especially with delegates connecting remotely, the course was delivered exceptionally well. The knowledge acquisition journey that Vanessa guided us towards was remarkable. We could relate to our current agile ways of working and seek better ways of implementation.

I enjoyed the course, the pace was good for me,the content and learning mechanisms very effective. I have done agile courses before with like minded individuals, so it was interesting to see and observe the reaction from "technical"participants regarding the chaos represented by the games. Maybe some objectives to games, and examples/videos of where games work afterwards may give so context?
