I attended John's PSPO training this weekend and I was impressed with both his story telling competence as well as the way he have real life examples mapped to the theory that we discussed. He did a great job in delivering information in a very short amount of time; and the best thing is that the information was laid out in such a manner that you remember make sense of it. I also appreciate his dedication in helping his students after the training too, by providing support materials and one on one support.
John offered to mentor me, free of charge. I wanted to take the PSM II after a fantastic PSM I Course he did. He was very helpful giving me really great tips & going through the type of questions. I learnt a lot about the Scrum Master role from these sessions. I then decided I wanted a Scrum Master (with no experience) & John provided the best advice for the interviews. 3 interviews later I have the job. I can’t thank him enough. Johns passion, knowledge & his desire to help people learn more & better themselves is next to none. I can’t recommend him enough. Thanks John!
Great two days training with John. Did not expect this course to be so full on so have come away with a lot of different mental models and a reading list. A lot of my questions were answered and I've definitely got a better understanding. Would thoroughly recommend
Had a great time on the PSM course with John in Manchester. Interactive & fun & covered lots of extra material. He makes sure you are ready for not only the sssesment, but your journey becoming a Professional Scrum Master. His passion & knowledge is truely inspiring. I would definitely recommend this course with John. No doubt I’ll be back for the PSM II. :)
John was very thorough going throw SCRUM values. He got us all up to speed before starting the course with exercises based on current experiences. Learned some great techniques and clarified many points I was uncertain about regarding SCRUM.
I attended the LESS Basics training with John Coleman having high expectations. I was delighted to see that John raised the bar over what I wanted to achieve. We went not only through LESS basics principles, but we reviewed SCRUM ( a nice refresher on the day before workshop). On the day we compared frameworks and different approaches. We went in depth of LESS and all was explained in plain English. I congratulate myself to choose this training with John in Bucharest. He has the skills and a natural approach on passing knowledge to Scrum Masters and Developers alike. Will definitely go to the next level of LESS as I found it's utility in large scale organizations.
John's Less Basics course is a must have for anyone that wants to introduce Less within his/her organization. John did a great job presenting us the main features of the framework, gave us all the reasons for why Less might be a very good choice for us while in the same time supplied a rich set of tools and techniques that can be used during the adoption process. The training is not limited to Less, but also covers to a good extend the most used agile frameworks out there. On this part, John used his extensive experience to provide us with enough information so that we can better understand the agile ecosystem and be able to extract the meaningful knowledge from each system. Overall, i recommend John's training for people migrating to an agile world as well as for people that are already working with an agile framework but looking to see what other options are available or simply to upgrade their knowledge on their framework of choice.
I really enjoyed the PSM course from scrum.org that I attended. John was great; he share part of his experience with us and made referrences to books and various videos. By the time you finish the course, you have a clear image of what scrum is from the theory perspective and ideas that you want to try and see how you can improve your own scrum team.
