Testimonials

This is a great course for those seeking a solid overview of Agile and how it can impact your web projects. I would definitely recommend to colleagues.

This course is a good detailed overview of Agile Project Management providing details of popular frameworks, such as, Scrum, DSDM, Lean and XP. A good foundation for both Project Managers, Delivery Managers and Senior Managers that work or need to work in an Agile Project Management environment.

Great course, well worth taking training for a complex subject like Agile project management.

Great intro into Agile thinking and methodology from an established and experienced course leader!

This was a fantastic primer for applying Agile principles to my situation. I'm actually able to improve efficiency in my workplace right away!

The course gave me a great introduction to how I might deploy Agile Web Project Management within our organisation. The presenter was knowledgeable and helpful so we were able to gain a good insight into any practical issues and opportunities.

Interesting insight into Agile Project Management. A great course that gave me a real insight into a less traditional project management style. To fit it all into one day was a big ask, but training felt relaxed and pace was right due to trainers competence. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Perfectly pitched (SCRUM-centric) seminar on Agile techniques.
