Overall good class for those who only know the basics of Scrum. Great job explaining key concepts of Scrum and really breaking them down.

I found the class very educational. A little overwhelming, but that is to be expected. I would definitely like to continue my Agile/Scrum education.

As an inexperienced member of a Scrum Team, that is practicing Scrum, I found this course really helpful in providing me the foundation needed to further grow into a Product Ownership (Product Champion) role. I've been able to spot changes that I will be able to recommend to the team.

Interesting material. Learned about what we do is not ideal and how to Scale. Will try to implement for my clients.

Great courses. Lots of info. Have learned actual meaning of some of the terminology, will be able to translate this to better use of my Teams.

We were able to cover a lot of material in a short period of time. Dan made the course interactive which helped in the learning. I genuinely feel as though I learned how Scrum Mastering should be done and feel like I can explain it.

Excellent. Never did story mapping at the Product Champion level and it was very cool. Learned about the various PO [Product Owner] roles which helped me understand the various hats as well as skills that I might need to develop to grow.

Cert. Scrum Professional – ScrumMaster Training Benefits

So you want to learn Scrum. But is training really worth it?
What can training give you that reading a few books can’t?


Transforming your team or organization to a new methodology is a big undertaking. Organized training will give you the kickstart you need and save you valuable time otherwise wasted on costly trial and error.


Studies show that when learners “do and say,” they experience an increase of knowledge retention up to 80% over reading alone.


Books and blogs are good knowledge resources. Skill, however, is acquired by doing. There is simply no replacement for the skill building that occurs with hands-on activities and real-life simulations.
