I am impressed with how you transform people and their thinking in the course of 2 days training. I have been practicing what you taught us for the past one month and I am a smiling certified scrum master now! See you again soon for my CSPO training.
I don’t think I’ve ever gained this much insight in this little time before. Your teaching style is outstanding and your personal approach fosters a great learning environment. I left your class greatly encouraged and highly motivated. Thank you.
One of the best professional training courses I’ve attended, period. Thanks, Chris!
Agile Learning Labs stands apart from many agile/scrum houses. They use immersion to teach. Much like the best way to learn a language is to live with native speakers, Agile Learning Labs teaches scrum, using scrum. Their approach goes beyond seeing the theory; it engages the ‘muscle memory’ of doing. Even the executive workshop was interactive. The workshops & coaching I’ve had with Agile Learning Labs always leave me not only with new perspectives, but also practical new ways to advance agile in my teams.
I came into the CSM training as an experienced agile practitioner who had very recently adopted scrum as the official process framework being used at my company. I was very pleasantly surprised with a wealth of information to confirm the things we already did well and offer many new ideas or tweaks to bring our team closer to the coveted efficiency of a “High Performing Team.” Whether you are new to the world of agile and scrum or looking for ways to revitalize and improve your team, I highly recommend any of the courses put on by Agile Learning Labs.
The training today delivered way more value than expected–thanks for an excellent learning experience! I honestly feel 5x more confident about grooming my backlog, writing/organizing/prioritizing stories and dealing with stakeholders than I did yesterday. You answered all questions very well, and kept a very friendly, open feel to the session, which encouraged conversation and debate. Nice work!
The workshop was very fun and effective. The experiential learning atmosphere gave me the feeling that I was really free to come to my own conclusions in my own time. The course content is proving helpful to me in my present job, where we’re rolling out a new product line, serving a highly diverse and sophisticated user community.
This was a true experience of learning by doing…. Agile Learning Labs did a terrific job of instilling the concept and practice of scrum to a class of scrum newbies in a relatively compressed two-day workshop. I came away not only as a Certified ScrumMaster, but with a lot of useful insights and the goal of elevating my organizations to the level of being true Scrum practitioners.
Unmitigatedly positive responses from the training. A couple of folks told me it was the best training they’ve ever had at Autodesk. My proof was how yesterday’s sprint planning meeting went. It was a 3x improvement. Truly incredible to watch. They took their training directly from the classroom to the scrum room.
Chris is a remarkably good teacher, coach and advocate for scrum and other agile approaches to software development. I love how he translates principles into hands-on exercises and games that drill lessons home more deeply than any sets of words, oral or written. Even with my 10 years experience with agile, I look to Chris as my agile mentor and guide.
