Lisa's profile

Participants Speak

“I attended a class on Agile that Lisa taught recently. She provided an incredible learning environment, using Agile tools throughout so that the concepts were not only presented in a didactic form but experienced as well. Never boring, Lisa is light-hearted and passionate about her work. She understands how to teach a class full of people with varying levels of knowledge in such a way that all participants were able to learn something new. I highly recommend Lisa as an instructor/presenter and would not hesitate to take another class from her.”—Pamela H.

“Lisa provided a SCRUM training in the greater Seattle area that was excellent. Her approach worked well for all levels of knowledge and with a diverse attendee group. She easily explained concepts and then demonstrated those concepts so the knowledge being learned was integrated on all NLP levels. Despite the technical nature of the training she made it fun, interesting, and interactive. I highly recommend her for any of your training needs as well as SCRUM Master needs.”—Mary B.

Ticket Information

Why ‘Pay it Forward’ training?

The vision behind the Pay it Forward Program is that money should not be a barrier for learning about Agile and Scrum. Each class has an early bird price ($195), a list price ($275), and a suggested donation ($75-$100). If any of these prices are still too high, then there is the “Pay it Forward/ Donation Only” option: pay what you can afford! This option would enable many who could otherwise have not attended this class, to enroll and benefit from it.
