            Our Students See All

            Extremely satisfied. The program was structured in a creative manner, practising what it preached, with plenty of examples and exercises. Facilitator kept training interesting. Knowledgehut Support Team provided excellent service! Thank You!Would surely recommend the training to others.

            Attended workshop in November 2017

            Very well conducted. Proactive management from the moderator, many exercises, hence quite practical, minimizing theoretical overload. Very pleased with the learning, for new starters as well as more experienced participants. Great experience sharing.

            Attended workshop in February 2018

            The experience over the two-day course was fantastic. It was not a dry explanation of the Scrum framework. Instead, a practical, example driven 2 days where we worked through all elements of the Scrum framework. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marco Mulder as a Scrum Master trainer or as a business Scrum coach within a commercial environment. His experience in this field was clear and impressive.

            Attended workshop in April 2018

            Knowledge Hut experience has been very good, this is my second registration with them directly and had total 3 registrations with them. The Trainer, Venue, Course material, Food and other logistics are well organized and managed. Special thanks to Lalit who takes extra effort to help and coordinate on everything. I am happy to take up other courses offered with Knowledge Hut and recommend others also to consider.
