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?
