The Agile and Scrum training day with Asha (the trainer) was just what I needed. I was using this as a refresher course before heading for Agile certification. The course was well-paced and gave time to participants to put the concepts into perspective with real-world examples. The presentation followed a logical order, the information was clear, and Asha dealt with all questions in a confident manner confirming that she really knew her stuff.
