Customers Love the Scrum Master Online Course

The online course helps me incredibly, because almost all of the projects I manage for our customers run with Scrum and I have a much better understanding of the team dynamics, the processes and the rules of the game and therefore also understand much better why some things don't run smoothly, because some Scrum steps are simply left out - just as Sohrab tells it in the course.

Since I didn't get any time for the course from my company, I did it over the Christmas break when my kid was busy painting and crafting in the morning. The course was just unbelievably good for that - because it was easy to take in small bites. I even passed the PSM 1 on srcum.org last week and the course prepared me ideally for that.
