From an ScrumMaster Training from an Ottawa based trainer
Mark has the approach and experience you need in order to learn Scrum. In fact he takes you beyond the mechanical parts and guides you through the leadership aspects so critical in successful applications of Scrum. It really was an enjoyable course. Learned Lots. Now I need to dig into all the resources he gave us – Sean Robson – Project Manager – INSPRO
This is a very engaging and informative training experience that goes profoundly beyond textbook learning. I absolutely recommend this course to my fellow PMP’s (Project Management Professionals) and to anyone who participates in I.T. Development projects. The engagement format of this course is a real differentiator. Ideal for impatient & over educated learners like myself. Paul Gill – Project Manager – Quercus Solutions
Mark is very knowledgeable and has the capacity to inspire change at personal as well as organizational level. Xavier Francis – Lead BA – Alert Pay
I would recommend this course to anyone who has said “I have heard of Scrum, and it won’t work here”. Some of the ideas presented in this course may open your mind. – Steve Oately – Developer – Private Government Agency
