I enjoyed David's examples from his real-world experience and that he referred to class members to talk about specific applications of Agile that they've seen. The group was able to learn about applications of Scrum through each other's experience and see shades of different practices for unique needs at different companies. We also could learn about what others disliked, giving us something to think about as aspiring facilitators or eventual Scrum Masters.
The session was perfect, not boring, at a good pace, with good content, good discussion, and the application of and chance to share and evaluate real world experiences. This is the second course that I have taken with David Bulkin. He is a terrific instructor and the reason that I have and will continue to choose GL over the competition. Please continue to develop your process and offerings.
David's real world experience and the ability to discuss and share on attendee experience and help them understand how it applies to their workplace. Unlike other trainers who will focus on the theory, David provides real world examples and examples affecting himself and shares it with the class. Class engagement is top-tier, and people leave with a brightened sense of knowledge for Scrum.
David Bulkin is an effective Scrum Trainer. He understands that new material is not immediately registered in the brain and so he repeats and asks questions in different ways just to get us thinking. I appreciate his methods. He is also energetic. The course materials were useful and I am of the impression that he gauges his sessions based on the experience of his audience which is good. I plan to do the A-CSM with him. Also, leading up to the session, attendees received loads of pre-class material such as test quizzes and other material to help understand Scrum. These were very valuable to me.
David knowledge and way of explaining and involving people. All practice exercises were very thoughtful and informative. I was able to fill lots of gaps in my understanding.
David's training went beyond simply teaching us how to pass the certification exam. Using practical examples, breakout sessions, and a highly engaging teaching style, he helped us understand the "why" behind using Scrum. Many people get lost in the "how" and end up with a gutted implementation of the Agile methodology. Having completing this training, I'm much better positioned to encourage a lasting, effective implementation of Scrum in our organization.
I found that having a trainer with tons of experience very valuable. He has trained over 425 times and you can tell he has perfected the way he trains in order to impact us as trainees giving us a better opportunity to retain the knowledge. He was very inclusive and had everyone involved. He was intentional in how he spoke and delivered the knowledge in class in order to keep us all engaged.
Talking about real world examples that match the topic, and the simulated PI.
I really enjoyed the interactive, fun, hands-on virtual learning session with instructor, Donald Patti. Don has a wealth of knowledge and provided real world examples and activities to help solidify the course content. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting this certification. Don, thank you for being an excellent trainer!
I learnt so much from this course. Very interesting, fun, educational and hands on. The instructor definitely has a passion for teaching this course and it shows through his teaching style. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I liked how the instructor gave real world examples to help connect the information. I think he was thoughtful and well versed and felt confident in his ability to teach.
The open communication and learning. Real world scenarios and exercises. Loved our break out sessions that we were able to work together with our fellow team members.
I found the sessions to be very interesting and interactive. The instructor gave "real life" examples that I could understand contextually. The class material also provided helpful context which the instructor was able to build upon.
The content David provided is both valuable and applicable in a multitude of scenarios and settings. Each day, principles are taught that can be immediately applied in many different business cases.
Real world examples were incredibly helpful, and to actually build something was very useful as well. I appreciate the presenter's ability to adapt to his audience.
