Customer Voices on Our Classes
“Very hands-on class with lots of concrete takeaways to help in real world scenarios. Reinforced practices and highlighted things that helped in passing the PSM II exam but that was merely a bonus as the content of the class is so useful – certifications or not. Stefan Wolpers is an excellent trainer with broad practical and theoretical knowledge on the subject and his classes seem to have very good working atmosphere (this was a second class by him that I have taken).”(Link.)
“It was a second time I attended a training led by Stefan and I strongly recommend. Stefan puts a strong emphasis on liberating structures and students interactions. He’s an excellent trainer and his classes are highly engaging. Overall – one of my best learning experiences. I felt very confident taking my PSM II assessment two days after the class and passed on my first attempt.”(Link.)
“Fantastic course with Stefan – I specifically chose to join the class that he was facilitating as I was familiar with him from the Age of Product and have enjoyed and learned from lots of his articles. He didn’t disappoint. Hugely knowledgeable and the delivery of the various elements of learning via Mural & Liberating Structures was inspiring and shall be plagiarised! A thoroughly enjoyable and thought-provoking learning experience for which I must thank him and the other attendees.”(Link.)
“This training is a great way to guide your understanding on Scrum -once again- in the right direction. It is highly practical, well organised, engaging and demanding -in a positive way. The teaching is heavily based on pair-work, collaboration and interaction within the group, using Liberating Structures and other exercises. Most of which, will be easily adjusted to different scenarios, so it’s also a great addition to a SM’s toolbox. I learned a lot, had fun and met 12 amazing professionals. Thank you, Stefan!”(Link.)
“Outstanding PSM II experience: Having looked forward to attending this class, literally for years, it was everything I expected, hoped for and then some. I am so grateful that this was an online virtual class, as it added an additional dimension to the learning, and was incredibly insightful. The trainer did an outstanding job of taking us through the learning plan, facilitating discussions, guiding the outcome and believing in the structures. Whether the learning was tangible curriculum, or intangible observation, it was excellent – made even more solid by the open sharing from my classmates and willingness from everyone to participate.”(Link.)
“First of all, thanks to Stefan Wolpers for hosting a truly, truly amazing PSM II class with spirited, passionate individuals and exciting discussions.”(Link.)

“Thank you Stefan Wolpers for the great Scrum workshop and everyone else for the amount of great conversations we had. Definitely learnt a lot!”(Link.)
“It was absolutely wonderful experience with this (4 days, 4 hours each) class facilitated by Stefan Wolpers. I am very much impressed on how the [4-day] agenda was planned and executed especially using the Liberating structures. There was a not of sharing and learning in the group and real thought process tackling real time issues as a scrum master. I would recommend his session without a doubt.”(Link.)
