Built up on real life examples with useful real life exercises. -

- The best course I’ve attended in my career. I loved that the
instructor challenged us to think for ourselves and did not give us
the answers straight away. Trond Svensen, SITS
Informative, to the point and loads of potential business value for my
employer and clients. Thomas Bakken, Consultant at Logica Norge AS
- I initially wanted to attend Gojko's course on Agile Acceptance
Testing because I wanted to learn about test automation and how to do
it well. As a product owner, I came to realise that I was going to
have to change a lot of what I did. I needed to learn how to make
requirements definite, unambiguous, atomic - not only so that they
might be an input into an automation process but also because I want
to create something the whole company can understand, something that
is concise to read and something I can easily keep up to date.-

- Definitely worthwhile, particularly if product owners/internal
clients are also involved. - Will Thomas, Scrum Developer at UBS
- As a teacher, Gojko is one of the few that understand the power of
teaching. It is all to seldom that someone with great familiarity of
the solutions they teach also understand and listens to any other and
novel problems someone share. It is hard to to put your self in
someone else’s shoes. But Gojko does this remarkably well. - Gunnar
Ahlberg, Avega Group
- Inspiring, changed my perspective, essential knowledge. - John I.
