Mitch likes to travel around, thus one does not have to fly to the States to participate in one of his classes. I took a scrum master class in Vienna and I am very satisfied with the result. From the first moment in the class Mitch connects to the people – even with 30+ people attending the training – it appeared to me that he was addressing me personally. I like his style of “I do write something to your brain – and you let it sink down”, it worked for me. Two weeks after the class, tiny bits of the information surface now and then.
He is straight, he tells you no nonsense and he gives you two choices – take it or leave it. Especially for non native speakers Mitch tries to adjust his pace, pitch & vocabulary to a comfortable and understandable level.
Mitch is a man of practice and has good and understandable examples from real-life and business situations to illustrate his points. The course itself was well structured and accurately scheduled. I left the training with a feeling of understanding that improved day by day after the training. I can fully recommend Mitch as a professional practitioner & trainer for Scrum related matters (and for matters of “parents education” too).
