Customer Testimonials

I have attended a training course in Scrum Master lectured by Mitch and I was amazed: The way the sessions were structured, the exercises and the way we were led to draw conclusions out of the given problems were very well considered. Mitch has a very specific way of making people using their own mind to solve purposed problems whilst using what’s been taught. The whole course content has exceeded my expectations. I strongly recommend his work, both books and training on Scrum methodology.

Mitch was brought into Virtuoso to bring together an entirely new IT department that had various levels of exposure to Agile. He conducted a multi-day class that focused on all aspects of Agile from the perspective of the individuals would be filling the role of Product Owner, Project Manager, Scrum Master and Developer. The curriculum was extremely interactive and included many hands-on exercises that generated a lot of good discussion. I would recommend Mitch to anyone who is interested in adopting the Agile process, or just need a refresher on the basics. He is well prepared and a dynamic presenter.

I need to recommend Mitch because he is a fantastic trainer with a lot of knowledge and experience regarding Scrum. During the entire training he was very precise in all the information/knowledge and passed interested in planting the Scrum seed in our heads. The Scrum Master training was and is very useful and I’m very happy that the Trainer was Mitch. Thanks Mitch.

Mitch’s energy and knowledge of the SCRUM process was very valuable, and he was a great teacher and motivator. His hands-on knowledge in working SCRUM teams helped with real life examples that one could relate to, and driving home the point that you would not know unless you try it, were valuable takeaways that will stay with me, and will help me transform my organization to get away from ‘SCRUM-but’ to be more ‘SCRUM’ and less ‘but’!
