The training has a healthy mix of theory and practice. By using Agile exercises with powerful debriefs, the participants will internalise the theory. During the training Marco shares his own experiences of doing Agile in many companies, which is highly appreciated by the participants. Participants who are already doing Scrum leave with clear insights on how to improve further. Participants new to Scrum are capable and usually very eager to apply Scrum right after the training.
Participants invariably are very positive about the training. These are some of their comments:
Berk Temuroglu, e-Commerce Director Tchibo Czech Republic and Slovakia:
I have attended one of Marco's Certified Scrum Master trainings in September 2014. Marco has a very unique approach as a trainer which embraces all people from different back rounds whether they have technical expertise or not. His "Scrum Master" training was more than a classroom session primarily because of many real life experiences and the continuous participation of the attendees. I personally act as a product owner in my current role, and I have gathered a lot of information about the needs of a development team and the power of scrum. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in "Scrum" to attend one of Marco's trainings.
David Alpert, Vice President of Operations & Chief Technology Officer HBO Europe
I have recently completed a CSM training course, that was given by Marco Mulder. I was very lucky to have had the training with Marco. Being a CTO it is important to understand agile methodologies from several different perspectives. I was very much impressed by his mastery and professionalism coupled with his industry and development experience. Proved to me that we could not have learnt about this topic in any better way. I would be more than happy to recommend or endorse Marco's competency. - He has a wicked and sharp sense of humor, by the way.
Stephen Ogden, Managing Director at Erasys GmbH
I was recently a participant of a Certified Scrum Master course led by Marco. My experience with him as a course leader was excellent. Even though I am currently working in a company where Scrum is being used since more than three years, the course brought me exciting new insights, and triggered many new ideas to take back with me to our Scrum environment. Marco knows how to captivate his audience and uses great instruments to illustrate the intricacies of the Scrum framework in a fun, accessible and convincing way. I would definitely recommend Marco and his CSM course to anyone who is looking to learn about Scrum, or just simply as a refresher course for more experienced Scrum practitioners
Blaž Strle, Manager of sales solutions at Adacta Group
I highly recommend Marco for SCRUM workshops and consulting. He is extremely good and well prepared speaker. His presentation was interactive and instead of following the PPT presentation, he has included our issues into scrum master training. He has provided us with good answers to our issues and even more important, he has inspired us for future improvements. Some of his suggestions were immediately applied in our organization, which resulted in positive effects in team collaboration.
Demian Denker, Chief Information Officer at Gramble World
Marco helped us transform our company. They introduced Scrum to all of us and led the way to implement it in our organization.
The CSM training was clear, dynamic, interactive, engaging and covered all of our main concerns. They gave us tools and shared real life experiences (and they have a lot of those) to be able to work with Scrum right away, and so we did.
The changes are already having a major impact on team collaboration, communication, planning, quality, time to market and focus.
We couldn't be more satisfied with the current results.
Cormac Donnelly, PMP, CSM, Management & IT Consultant
I attended Marco's Certified Scrum Master training and was very happy with what was delivered.
Marco's skill and experience shine through in his ability to balance concepts, in-class exercise work and his real-life experience, while sticking to a tight schedule and adapting to the key interest areas of the group.
Gregory Forel, PMP, Project Manager at Microsoft
Marco's 2 days CSM (Certified Scrum Master) course is simply the best I've attended yet, for few reasons:
- Marco is engaging from the first minute to the last, you won't fall asleep and you won't need coffee.
- He's an expert, you will learn and feel confident to apply the skills by the end of his course.
- His course is delivered in the most effective possible way, I won't ruin the surprise: you'll have to attend. Let's just say he walks the talk and 'applied' Scrum on improving his own course!l
Dmitry Nabatchikov, Software Development Professional
I've attended a CSM workshop conducted by Marco. I recommend him as highly professional trainer. He is very passionate about Scrum. He conducted the training in an energetic and agile manner inspiring all the participants.
Carlos Cardoza, Test Engineer at LS Retail
Just participated in the CSM course taught by Marco – excellent training, good coverage, very professional and the best part: The Agile Scrum approach applied to the entire course!
All CSM courses are taught by Trainers approved by the Scrum Alliance. Taking a CSM course, passing the CSM test, and accepting the license agreement designates you as a Certified ScrumMaster, which indicates that you have been introduced to and understand the basic concepts you need to perform as a ScrumMaster or team member on a Scrum team. This course also satisfies two elements of the CSD track: Scrum Introduction and Elective.
