What participants say

Excellent trainer, great course, seamlessly delivered ★★★★★

Excellent trainer, great course, seamlessly delivered online

This was an online course and the trainer, Johannes, made extremely effective use of break-out rooms, interactive whiteboards and tools to deliver the course in a professional and engaging manner . I found it especially helpful to have practical activities, relevant and varied examples as well as detailed explanations. Johannes' vast knowledge of the area and ability to impart the content in a fun, interactive and meaningful way made the course both enjoyable and informative.

Highly recommend it for lawyers ★★★★★

Highly recommend it for lawyers

The PSM I course from Johannes Geske is a great example of time and money well spent. It is very informative, greatly structured and far from boring. He has made it good fun and highly interactive. I would like to recommend this course to be taken by every Lawyer specialized in IT Law and working with teams or clients who use scrum or other agile methods (I guess most do...). For one it is a useful tool to be used even in the legal world. Secondly in gives a much deeper inside into how your client/colleague works and what his situation looks like. This knowledge is key to provide a good service or steer them according to plan. Just as much as you cannot work in this field without certain technical knowledge, it greatly helps knowing the used methods when aiming at being an efficient and up to speed legal counsel.

It was a great course!

It was a great course, well structured with lots of examples and group work. Sure there was also a lot of theory involved but it was lectured very well, so it was alright. Also Johannes could answer all our questions.All in all highly recommend!
