The amount of material covered in two days of class exceeded my expectations. Very happy with the delivery of the material and prep emails received. Wonderful job Don & David! Best, VJ
Nice job! Well organized, good tempo, good reinforcement of content tied into real-life experiences. Donald also made the class fun with his sense of humor. I definitely would recommend this class and Donald.
Don was kind, funny, informative, and attentive. I could tell he is a SME in this subject, and he offered strong, constructive feedback throughout the course. The course was interactive and had a solid mix of instructor-led delivery, breakout sessions, and interactive quizzing to prepare for the exam.
I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for Donald Patti and his expertise in teaching the Scrum class this past weekend. I passed the exam today and was very confident thanks to him! His “hands on approach,” detailed course materials and interactive learning style made it a lot of fun! Thanks again Donald! Marcy Kravit
The course was interactive and had a solid mix of instructor-led delivery, breakout sessions, and interactive quizzing that helped with the exam preparation. The trainer, Donald Patti, was kind, funny, informative, and attentive, and with the learning from this course, I easily passed my exam. Thank you!
This was a wonderfully interactive, informative and overall great course. Don Patti was a great instructor, he made everything easy to understand and fun. I would definitely take another class with him and Grow-Lean. So happy I took this certification!!
Don was a great instructor. He knew the material exceptionally well and he could teach it in a very clear and enjoyable manner. I will probably look for other classes he offers that I can take.
Amazing introduction to scrum and agile frameworks. As a part of a start-up, we needed solutions that could scale and provide the same agility we needed to innovate. DP at Grow lean kept the class engaged, wasn't afraid to provide feedback and correction in a humorous and meaningful way, and inspired students to pursue and agile mindset.
The information and exercises were clear and concise. It was presented in a way that made it easy to understand and apply. All of your questions are answered and you feel confident taking the exam. Don was a great teacher!

Don Patti is an excellent coach/mentor/trainer/and overall GURU he truly cares about his students and makes learning ALOT of FUN! I look forward to taking another boot camp with him. I would highly recommend and suggest everyone enroll through Grow-Learn…and select Don Patti you will not regret it!
DP was a great teacher! He is extremely knowledgeable and really made me feel comfortable to ask questions. He thoroughly explained the subjects and I walked away with a better understanding of Scrum and other frameworks as well. I would definitely take this class again! He even gives out gifts - thanks for the play-doh DP!
I really loved the class structure and how engaging the teacher, Don Patti was. He did a great job of incorporating activities with Miro and quizzes with Kahoot an it really enhanced my learning.
Don did a great job explaining the basics of Agile in an engaging way. I followed the guidance he gave and got 100 on the exam. The test itself was not too difficult and the skipping #1 trick worked just fine. Thank You for all the help.
Don was an excellent trainer who kept all the students engaged. I enjoyed the interactions and games we played on Miro as teams. That to me helped me better understand the topic at hand. He had good jokes that made us laugh to lighten the mood/day. I would definitely refer a friend to his class because he made sure to address the topics, we wanted to learn more about at length.
Don Patti was an amazing instructor. He immersed us into our learning through practice scrum situations. When we were not sure about something, he never made us feel "dumb". He was patient and re-directed his lesson until we understood. I really enjoyed his class!
