What companies are saying about our Agile Programs

An Ag­ile Ex­pert Cer­ti­fied Train­ing class was re­cently con­ducted here at the USPS Wilkes-Barre So­lu­tions Cen­ter in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.  The train­ing was a three-day class con­ducted from 04-20-15 through 04-22-15. Our class con­sisted of 16 em­ploy­ees, most were de­vel­op­ers, a few Busi­ness Sys­tems An­a­lysts, and two Busi­ness Pro­ject Lead­ers.  The 16 stu­dents came to class with an ar­ray of dif­fer­ent Ag­ile back­grounds, some with very lit­tle Ag­ile ex­pe­ri­ence or ex­po­sure. Af­ter he dis­cov­ered that the stu­dents were of vary­ing de­grees of the un­der­stand­ing of Ag­ile, Gourab es­sen­tially re­struc­tured the class to en­sure that each stu­dent was able to re­ceive the max­i­mum ben­e­fit of the three-day class. The Ag­ile in­struc­tor Gourab Nanda did a re­ally fine job in­struct­ing the class was given the vary­ing Ag­ile back­grounds of the class.  The stu­dents were kept quite busy dur­ing all three days.  All 16 stu­dents fur­nished me with ver­bal high words of praise for Gourab.  I would state that given the com­ments that I re­ceived from the stu­dents and Gourab that the three-day class was in­deed very suc­cess­ful. I would per­son­ally rec­om­mend Gourab to teach Ag­ile Cer­ti­fied Train­ing to all of the USPS So­lu­tion Cen­ters or any Cor­po­ra­tion uti­liz­ing the Ag­ile Ex­pert Cer­ti­fied Method­olo­gies.

I wanted to thank you for the ex­tremely suc­cess­ful train­ing ses­sions.  Your classes have caused a lot of ex­cite­ment at all lev­els within Far­ragut.  The teams are al­ready im­ple­ment­ing good changes for the cor­rect rea­sons.  The teams have a new un­der­stand­ing of why and have a new sense of au­ton­omy.

Tak­ing the Scrum Mas­ter train­ing was a great ex­pe­ri­ence that al­lowed my team and oth­ers in our or­ga­ni­za­tion to learn the fun­da­men­tal of the Scrum/Ag­ile method­ol­ogy. This course was very in­ter­ac­tive and the in­struc­tor was very en­gaged in un­der­stand­ing our or­ga­ni­za­tion’s needs. Over­all I would rec­om­mend this course to any­one that is in­ter­ested in learn­ing and ap­ply­ing these con­cepts in their daily work.

Heather Ressler | Philips | Pittsburgh, PA

The content was very good. The material is easy to follow. The quizzes are helpful to reinforce the teachings and stimulate discussions to ensure a good understanding of concepts. Perhaps a type of course tailored to the needs of embedded systems should be considered.
