I feel this is a great match for me. I am just starting out as a scrum master and running into difficulties with a team that has been 'agile' for a few years.
March 2, 2022
Good, not great, bad audio. Not that useful if you are not a Scrum Master (focused on certifications). I guess that I just picked the wrong one.
December 29, 2021
si, lo ha sido, he aprendido mucho, y muchas cosas aplicables a la empresa donde me encuentro laborando
December 3, 2021
Excellent course. The teacher knows the material well and presented it beautifully. He used lots of examples that made the concepts very clear. Highly recommended.
November 17, 2021
Amazing course! - the information is given in the right pace. - very helpful test at the end of each part. - interesting to see and to learn because lessons are short and very well structured. - very beautifully made - with all these extra pictures, diagrams and videos of people working. I see how much work was done creating this wonderful learning material. Thank you, dear teacher!
November 6, 2021
This was indeed a good course. The trainer has delved into Scrum techniques and has also provided simulations for a Sprint as well. I will definitely recommend this course and the trainer as well.
October 25, 2021
El curso explica muy bien cómo funciona SCRUM, e incluso proporciona una simulación que ayuda a verlo en acción.
September 21, 2021
The chapters were followed up with an activity or quiz that optimizes the retention of ideas and general principles of agile and scrum. One of the best courses I've taken so far in my upskilling journey through digital platform such as Udemy. Kudos to Ignacio!
September 8, 2021
Really well organized, and lot of resources provided to help in our day to day work in Agile and Scrums.
August 10, 2021
Break down is great. Four stars because some of the resources have tiny text that is difficult to read.
August 3, 2021
The informtion is top rated, with easy to explained concept and practices for my learning. recommended
June 28, 2021
I was sceptic in the beginning, but in the end the course proven to be very good. There are practical exercises, quizzes and useful examples. Lectures are of high quality. I am not giving 5 stars for 2 reasons: 1) Some contents still need refinement after Scrum Guide update in 2020 2) English of the lecturer is ok, but has quite heavy accent at times.
June 17, 2021
This course is very interactive and delivered on my expectations. It helped me acquire knowledge that I could put to use at work right-away, and also helped me prepare for the PSM1 certification. In my opinion, this course is the real deal!
June 6, 2021
Very good and informative course. If you need to understand a theory in a better way this is for you. Many useful tips and tools presented which you can use at work. Specially when you are starting your career in agile and scrum it will be very helpful .
May 31, 2021
I took the CSM test yesterday. Not only I passed, but also got 100% on it! Thanks to this course and all of its fun assignments. I was quite ahead in the training and very confident during the exam. Would highly recommend this.
