Training in Other Locations:
Excellent overview of iteration and release planning The course is a must for anyone working in an agile environment. An excellent description of an iteration and release planning. Key concepts such as velocity, story points and ideal days are very well explained. Good recommendations on how they should be used. I found the “Release Planning” topic examples on how to plan a release when the team has historical data versus when the team does not have historical data extremely informative Good pointers on how to approach planning a release on projects that have either a fixed delivery date, fixed scope or fixed cost.Alexandra Ursea
Lance’s “Working on A Scrum Team” training class was informative, interactive and engaging. Our teams found the onsite group training very effective to get everyone (Product Owners, Scrum Teams, Scrum Masters) aligned on the same concept, approach, and best practices… Most importantly, he still works with scrum teams in the trenches and is able to provide thoughtful suggestions for difficult situations.Lu F.
This course was a pleasure to attend and the training went by quickly; it was extremely “user-friendly.” Mike had a very well organized syllabus with accompanying overhead slides. The content covered in the course was substantive, meaningful, followed a logical format, and at the end of the course left you with the sense that you could perform effectively and confidently as a Scrum Master. In addition, Mike has an easy going delivery style, with an open and receptive personality. He inspires the participants into active discussion and conversation, and provides countless opportunities to ask questions. It is clear that Mike possesses an in-depth knowledge of Agile/Scrum specifically, and of SW development and project management more broadly. Finally, the conference room was strategically and effectively laid out to facilitate discussion among the group as a whole, and also among the participants at each of the individual tables. The class was very informative, fun, and…he’s also got a great sense of humor.Gray B.
