DASM - Excellent Delivery of Course Material

Ashraf was a pleasure to learn from. His professional and life experiences definitely reflect a unique teaching style that any student would admire. He has aspired me to become a better professional.

Every engaging, simplicity at its best

I recently took the DASM course that was taught by Dr. Ashraf and he was very patient, geniuinely care and have a passion for teaching. There were times when I got lost on the certain topics and he made it his business to make sure I understood what was being taught before moving on. Extremely accessible and easy going, even temper and ready to explain anything even after the class is over and after hours. Too bad he doesn't do more of 5hese courses in other subject because I would be at the top of the list in each one. Thanks again Dr. Ashraf

Simple and very engaging sessions

Project management is something which I kind of know owing to my profile however, have never an opportunity to understand anything related to the subject as per the books. Despite of my first time learning about Agile and process, I didn’t find anything difficult to understand or comprehend. Thanks to the Pedagogy Mr.Ashraf follows which is engaging, practical and extremely simple. I am sure the learning will help me to make the processes better for my team. Thanks


Ashraf taught very nicely I did not sleep even it was midnight and early morning due to different time zone.

Senior Scrum Master

Ashraf is a very thorough, patient, experienced and knowledgeable Agilist. He takes time to explain the material and share valuable, real life, practical examples. You would not regret taking any of the training.

Great instruction

I recently took the DASSM course with Dr. Naim and easily passed the exam. He runs well paced, engaging, and interactive sessions even when there are copious amounts of materials to be covered. Combine that with the ability to apply real world experience and examples to the theory presented and you've got the perfect mix.

Great Experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed the course taught by Dr Ashraf Naim. At first I wasn't very sure If I will be able to understand the nuances of Disciplined Agile as it is something I had never studied, but Dr Ashraf made sure that each student is on board while he taught us in innovative ways. He was extremely patient and always accesible for us if we had any doubts. It indeed was a great learning experience which will definitely help me build a better career path.

I liked that the DALSM class size was small, it made the activities very productive and efficient. It was also easy to ask for help or clarification because the group was small. I enjoyed the case studies and found those to be very useful as a practical implementation of the concepts being taught.

There is a lot of course material to cover in two days and would be helpful if I had done some reading in advance of the course. I would recommend suggested readings in advance which will help introduce concepts to people and possibly foster better dialogue or engagement.

Program Manager - ADESA

The best training I ever attended, Ashraf provided comprehensive coverage of DA toolkit, sharing real world implementation examples & industry challenges. 2-Day virtual workshop over zoom was not boring at-all, it was full of evergy as if we are sitting in a class room. With balance of breaks, fun & deep dive coverage of course material; we left 2-days memories with new friends, new professional connections & wealth of DA knowledge that will help me shaping future project deliverables. My only regret to not have learnt it way earlier & all agile implementation pain could have been resolved. Thanks Ashraf & DA team for providing such excellent opportunity. Kindly keep me posted on future events & updates
