David made the entire virtual session entertaining. In addition to achieving a solid understanding of the Scrum framework we participated in many thought provoking exercises skirting the fringe of the framework. It makes sense to follow the framework in an attempt to achieve the common goal while continually improving the process and simultaneously providing flexibility to adapt to change and uncertainty. The strong emphasis on collaboration and transparency within a team promote self-examination and a realization that we can all do better.
David was great! He is friendly, came prepared, and was very comfortable with the material which allowed him to make the class much more conversational than just a subject matter expert at the front while we all watch quietly. David encouraged us to ask questions at any time along the way and this opened up to allow us to bring our experience into the training. I am sure that makes it more interesting for him but it also lets us all bond with each other along the way and hear varying points of view while learning the material. Thank you for a great class experience!
I highly recommend David's Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) training. It was immediately evident David knew his stuff and was bringing his real-world experience to the class. If you have concerns about dull virtual courses, you won't find that here. It was very engaging with lots of hands-on activities, leaving me sure that I could immediately apply what I had learned. I would, without a doubt, take other courses from David.
Excellent real world examples of how to apply learning. Great brainstorming sessions and overview of good practices
David was terrific! He kept everyone engaged and involved the entire time! We covered everything multiple times in such a way that it reinforced the learning early and often.
Given the fact that the sessions were in a virtual mode, the content was easy to follow as the instructor did a fabulous job in setting the learning framework and provided some fun along the way. The repetition in presenting the learning content was very good.
What I found most valuable about this session was the ability to freely discuss and ask questions without being held to a strict timeline or Q/A time-box. Learning from the other students and the instructor about real-life Scrum practices, is what helped me be able to connect the dots around how Scrum can be applied in any organization to any problem. David was amazing at fostering an open and collaborative environment which made the class super enjoyable.
The course coalesced years of experience in working with agile projects in one form or another and the best experiences of my career into a role that fits me like second nature, a CSM. The instructor was the most valuable part of the course. Educators with hands on experience are the ones I seek out. David Bulkin is a great asset for Grow Lean. Get more like him.
Both sessions were excellent! They were casual, interactive and kept the entire class engaged. I appreciated the literature provided to be read in preparation for the class. The post-training test prep was fun and helpful. David is an excellent instructor, and created an environment that was comfortable and encouraged questions and discussions.
The A-CSM session helped me refresh the mechanics of CSM that I took one year ago, and go much more in depth. It added more to it: the agile framework, that was only introduced at the CSM, here was one of the key sections we went through. I also found Active listening and facilitating, Agile coaching, Problems solving and Grow beyond conflict extremely helpful. We had plenty of sessions where the team shared experiences and worked together on areas of personal improvements. Truly recommended to all those who really want to build up on CSM and really go beyond it
David Bulkin took what could have seemed like a very long 2-day virtual course and made it engaging and interesting and fun. Technology was well deployed to aide in the remote learning. David is an enthusiastic instructor who managed to elicit active participation from everyone in the class, even those like myself who are generally more comfortable observing in the background. I would definitely take another class with David Bulkin and would highly recommend his Advanced CSM course to others.
It has been eight years since I took the CSM course and this was a great way to not only refresh my Scrum skills but to dive deeper into the mechanics. David is very knowledgeable and even though we were virtual (due to covid19) we had many break out sessions where we could collaborate and share real world Scrum scenarios. I will be implementing the Powerful Questions and using what I learned in the Growing Beyond Conflict sections.
David has an extreme mastery of all of the covered topics and also an impressive lineage within the world of agile. With that said he remains humble and relatable. David is also able to present the material in a way that is both entertaining and helps with retention.
Energetic, Interactive, and material is explained really well. David engages with students, listens and answers questions and is available in, and after, class. Very well taught course.
I really liked the virtual CSM training training because David and Don have tremendous "real world" experience they impart as part of the curriculum, their ability to strike the appropriate balance between teaching and incorporating interactive learning sessions, and their ability to facilitate discussion with the session attendees with some humor.
