What our participants say:
“I usually find corporate trainers so distanced from day to day work that they aren't able to give practical answers but that was definitely not the case with agile42. Each exercise allowed me to relate back to experiences I had observed throughout my career and to see a practical application of agile methodology." -- David H., Senior Project Manager

“I can honestly say this was hands down the best training class I have ever attended. You guys do an amazing job facilitating and keeping people interested. I am so excited to use the new tools in my toolbox for my sprint planning on Monday, and easily passed the CSM test with the knowledge I obtained in your class.” -- Stephanie C., Project Manager

“Eleven months later, what has stuck with me the most is that the training provided an expansive tool belt of techniques and concepts. I feel I can draw on the tool belt any time I need.” -- Mitchell F., Program Management Consultant

“The training reinforced for me the paradigm shift from the waterfall approach in a monolithic organization to Agile’s concept of servant leadership. Yes, I’m leading the team, but I’m here to enable your success.” -- Michael M., Senior Project Manager
