Firstly, our live-online Certified Scrum Product Owner course is interactive, engaging and fun. It’s designed using training from the back of the room techniques. As a result, it leverages the science behind how the human brain learns.

Secondly, people like you who attended our online CSPO found it highly valuable. Here are some quotes about our training:

Simon is an outstanding agile trainer and empathic agile coach. He has vast software development experience and is a fantastic story teller. Simon skilfully introduces agile concepts and practices and knows exactly how to bring his ideas across. What fascinates me about Simon is his ability to connect with people and get a detailed sense of their needs. He shares a wealth of experience, knowledge, techniques and approaches and sows seeds of insights and a deeper understanding of Agile and lean, that truly grow and transform the way one works and collaborates. Shortly said, if you really want to transform to agile, Simon is your man.” Anna

The agility with which the host adapted to our current situation (coronavirus) by setting up the online course was a really authentic example of how to (positively) react to change.” Henrik

Simon is like a deep lake of Agile knowledge and experience, and it was a pleasure to work with him.” Marcel

“Very insightful, filled with lots of experience and real-life situations” Dennis
