Attended Certified ScrumMaster®(CSM) workshop in March 2019

In the 1st hour of training, I didn't know what was Agile and how to execute projects the Agile way. My Trainer, Tricia was excellent and had a perfect blend of huge experience. I came out of the two-day training with real-time experience. The activities we performed and case studies we did in 2 days were valuable!
