What participants say

★★★★★ Trustpilot review: "Practice-oriented, quickly comprehensible and communicated with fun"

"The goal of participating in the SCRUM training of our team was to develop a common understanding of the framework and the starting point change our way of working within the team.

We had originally planned a face-to-face training, but due to Covid-19 this was not possible. Johannes came up with the idea to do it remotely with us which was a big plus in the end because this is how our team works daily.

We were guided through the theoretical topics in a very structured and competent way and were then able to test our knowledge in practical tasks. In the process we also sharpened our team structure and communication with each other. The tools used for the training were very well chosen and well coordinated by Johannes.

Johannes made the whole training very varied, interactive and with a strong practical focus. This is exactly what helps us now to modify our way of working and to really apply the acquired knowledge. Already during the training we were able to name some of our impediments more concretely and also decide together - with the support of Johannes - how to approach them.
Johannes managed very well to mix work with a good portion of fun which was also very motivating!

I am very happy that Johannes will continue to support us and I can highly recommend working together with him – not only in trainings but also as a coach."

★★★★★ Trustpilot review: "Experiencing Scrum through..."

"Experiencing Scrum through a series of Sprints was excellent! We even increased the complexity. Another thing I particularly liked was the breadth of aspects, ranging from values to practices. Johannes created beautiful posters, and provided a great handout for self-study and recommend other scrum.org resources. Last but not least, without giving away too much here: The beginning was a big surprise! All I say is "Beware of raw chicken…". Thank you, Johannes!"
