The event was an eye-opener! Nanda, the trainer, actually gave a big reality check for me and I was able to identify where my Scrum understanding was incorrect and, more importantly, the problem areas in the way I used to practice Scrum. The session also provided valuable feedback and enabled me to become a better facilitator as we had several practical exercises to practice all the techniques we learned over the course of two days. All in all, it was a very informative and practical session.

Nanda was just fantastic. I got to learn a lot of new things. The entire idea about running a project has changed in my mind. CSM was like a base line. A-CSM seemed like a Post Graduation. It gave a completely new perspective.
