Simplifies and clearly instructs us through complex planning This video course is brilliant. Each chapter has at least 1 quiz with a variety of question types (select best answer or multiple select etc) where we get instant feedback about our answers. During the course, I’ve covered a number of useful planning and estimating practices and tools, some of which are common place in most scrum teams (such as planning poker), but this course really gets back to the basics which helps me understand the theory reasons behind it, and identifies what’s really important. Since completing the course, I am much more confident with what tools I can use to plan and estimate my projects properly. Within this video course, Mike Cohn presents clearly and provides example scenarios. He draws comparisons which we can all relate to. I’ve been very impressed with the quality and clarity of the course and would highly recommend to my friends and colleagues.

As one of the original employees of Tandem Diabetes Care, my opinion is that the most important strategic decisions we made early on was to use Scrum. Every one of our Scrum masters received their training from Mike Cohn. Not only did Mike help us understand how to use scrum for our software development, his training gave us a base from which we figured out how to use Scrum for both our electrical and mechanical engineering groups.

Mike’s wealth of experience and exuberant style of training leads to courses that always deliver a heavy-weight punch. From his ScrumMaster Certification to User Stories Applied course, there is always useful material to apply to your project. The best part is that no matter how ‘trivial’ a question you may have, Mike always takes the time to listen patiently and provides sound guidance.
