Freshly Certifiable Scrum Masters: After class celebration in Munich!

Sehr viel Praxis, Empfehlung, Vermittlung von Erfahrungen… weniger “reine” Theorie. — A CSM Course Participant, December 9-10, 2013

“Very clarifying and direct to the real problems of doing Scrum in the Software Development Business” — Tobias Abarbanell, CSM In-House Course Participant, Portugal, July 1-3, 2013

“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill—the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill—you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes. Remember: all I’m offering is the truth. Nothing more.” Morpheus in The Matrix.
