Attended Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)® workshop in August 2020
Chethan Narasimhaiah Product Manager
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.
