Insightful, Thought-provoking, Fun!Duke Coulbanis •
Having heard Karen and Sam at many of their talks and presentations at Conferences and Conventions about Scrum and Kanban, I was very excited to sign up for this course which seem to touch on each and every aspect of my job. Their teaching style is fun and innovative, and each participant gets the information that is relevant to them. The topics are presented and discussed with just enough structure to ensure the course goals are adequately met, but with ample flexibility to ensure that each participate gets the value they require from the course. And both Ladies are charming and charismatic presenters and conversants with as delightful a disregard for convention as they have a love for innovation! Having access to the materials after the course is an invaluable asset, which allows one to revisit and restudy the concepts when they become more prominent from time to time during the course of a working project. In my Teams, we've applied many of the techniques learned during the course with great effect! I would gladly do and recommend any course offered by Sam & Karen!
Good course for all team members.Inez De Kock •
This is a very good course for all members within a team. It makes you really think about the way in which you do things even though you already think about these things but never take action. If you apply what you learned within this course you will definately see an improvement within the team and work delivered to the client.
Content okay...presentation quality is lackingBenjamin Spector •
This 2-woman team is obviously passionate about the topic of improving scrum teams. I found some of the content useful and will apply it to the teams I coach and scrum master. I especially like the exercises they provide in their workbook. The presentation style is informal and that is not a problem for me. However, the slides they used were static while the presenters chatted/lectured on each of the course topics. Sometimes whole sections of the course had only a single slide with a voice-over duo from the presenters. Luckily, none of the individual lectures was too long. But even with the shorter lectures, there needs to be a more dynamic interaction with the student. The graphics quality does not have to be slick to effective. Also, the amount of content in the course is very light. I was hoping for more depth and breadth in the course, and that was a disappointment. I commend Karen and Samantha for their effort. I know that these kinds of presentations require a great deal of effort. In addition, I would encourage them to continue with their training video work. Along with that encouragement, I would recommend that for their future efforts to create training videos that they model more effective presentation techniques such as those from the courses by Mike Cohn.
Decent content, Average DeliveryNicholas Hamilton •
This advanced scrummaster course offered some new topics not covered in other training, and provided good team exercises, but the overall delivery of the course was lacking. The course seemed as if it was filmed in someone's home and lacked demonstration of the concepts, rather focused on self directed activities, which often times were meant for larger teams.
Course ReviewRobin Noonan •
I think this course had some helpful exercises. I like the way it was presented. There was some useful information in here for teams.
Great topics on deepening relationships within the team.Lorenzo Hidalgo •
Many of the courses provided ways to discover and deepen relationships within the team. We tend to forget building personal relationships in lieu of technology, but it's people that make the difference. This course gave me insight and new ideas how to build stonger Agile teams.
What a wonderful collection of insights!Andy Cleff •
I really enjoyed this course. Thank you Karen and Sam! You have provided so many actionable insights, useful tools, exercises and games that will help me lead my teams to deepen their practice. The course "handout" was a great accompaniment to the videos.
