Our students love the training!
97% of our students say "the GoodAgile CSM class was worth the time and money - even aside from the value of the certification". And 98% said they were likely to recommend it to a friend or colleague! We get comments like this one from Ashok Rai all the time: "This was the best training I have ever attended. Pete, you rock!".
Real-world knowledge you need to succeed
The course is about using Scrum to deliver powerful results and success with real-world projects, especially challenging ones! We cover distributed / multi-location Scrum, using Scrum with fixed-price / fixed-date projects, project estimation and delivery-date planning and tracking in Scrum, Scrum tools, and scaling Scrum for large projects or organizations.
