Mike has been High Moon Studio's agile coach and teacher for several years. He is equally great at one-on-one coaching as he is with teaching entire classes on how to be ScrumMasters, how to write user stories or how to plan on an agile project. Mike's books are the bibles for user story writing and agile planning and estimating. Mike is the master at pragmatic, real world implementation of agile principles which sets him apart from most others in his field. Clinton Keith, CTO, High Moon Studios
Mike's classes at Yahoo! have been incredibly useful. I recommend him to anyone who is serious about implementing Agile in their organization. Gabrielle Benefield, Director of Agile Development, Yahoo!
Your ScrumMaster class was the best project management class I've ever experienced. The concepts were thoughtfully presented, and clearly delivered. While many training classes equate to just “reading the book,” yours was entertaining, succinct, and provided mountains of usable takeaway. Deke Waters, Day 1 Studios
As a result of this class I have ten very concrete things I can do to improve my teams and my organization. Loved the class! Patricia Rotman, Siemens
After the recent Certified ScrumMaster course that Mike ran for us in the UK, everyone went back to their teams completely re-energized and determined to make Scrum work. Mike is a passionate and inspirational teacher with a wealth of experience from working with a wide variety of companies. We can't wait to have him back later this year to work with more teams and to help guide us through the transition to a fully Agile way of managing our complex projects. Harvey Wheaton, Senior Development Director, Electronic Arts
Thank you for the excellent class. You are a gifted teacher and I love your enthusiasm for Scrum. You set a new standard for interactive, fun classes! Chris Sunyata, Project Manager, Covidien
Mike introduced our organization to Scrum. His classes were logical, entertaining and very insightful. The individual teams picked up the process quickly and within a few weeks the concepts and principles we learned from him began to feel second nature. (Just as he said they would.) Terry Eaton, Ultimate Software
This is the best training class that I've ever attended, where the trainer not only has the best materials but had a ton of experience to back it up. Bal Mahale, Director of Development, Workscape
You were a great instructor and you absolutely, forever altered my perspective on project management process. Ray Hutchins, President, SimGame Exchange

Awesome experience. We will be sending other team members to your classes. Misty Lowery, Project Manager, Edfinancial Services
Mike seemed to answer all my questions - even before I was educated enough to ask them. Great speaker, fantastic knowledge base, excellent educator. Bill Milam, Edfinancial Services
