Robin Gough-OBrien Sr. Director at Checkers Drive In Restaurants from Orlando,FL, United States
The class was collaborative and vibrant. I was able to learn the principles of Scrum and gain the skills and knowledge needed to apply it effectively in my organization. In the short days following that class I've been able to implement Scrum across different departments and we've evolved our mindset and aquired the practical skills and tools to leverage the framework at all levels. I highly recommend this!
