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.
Excellent Company and Excellent Trainer. The class is very enjoyable because of David who has an excellent way of presenting and engaging the participants.
I have been doing Scrum/XP/etc for 10+ years and although I am proficient at it and my team is doing well, I still found dozen different things that we can do and improve in our mindset and processes.
This class was perhaps the best delivered course I have taken in my career. Mr. Bulkin was a master at presenting the material, including and engaging all of the class participants to ensure that learning was taking place, not merely knowing how to answer test questions. It was fun and interesting. Another notable observation - David Bulkin was available from the beginning of the class start all the way to the ending and beyond. I don't think he ever left his teaching post. We were able to ask questions and clarifications during all of the breaks and even after the close of the day. I am HAPPY to recommend Grow-Lean and specifically Mr. David Bulkin for any class course they offer!
David was dynamic, engaging, knowledgeable and funny. He certainly knew the material and provided exercises and real-world examples to drive home the key points. The pre-readings and quizzes were a great way to get an introduction to the course and to get the basics down. I would recommend the course to anyone wanting this certification.
David is an exceptional teacher: knowledgeable, prepared, thorough; skilled at explaining abstract concepts articulately and challenging his students to think differently. The class was a great balance of engaging lectures and hands-on group work. I don't care who you are, if you take this class you are going to walk away having learned something new that can be applied to your work and life.
Our instructor did a great job building rapport on both days. The real life applications of being show the tools and driving growth by stumbling on how to best use the tools for our given circumstance.
Trained resources like me who actually had zero background in Scrum. David knows how to engage resources and his trainings are extremely good and thorough. I completed my certification successfully with 96% due to his awesome training.
