“I participated in the Agile Values & Foundation one day training course conducted by Bachan Anand. Bachan was able to provide a thorough insight on the subject as well as some handouts that are very helpful in my day to day task. Training was affordable and Bachan delivered even more than what I expected while enrolling for the training.” —Saibhaskar L.
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 ($145), a list price ($195), and a suggested donation ($50). If any of these prices are still too high, then there is the “Paying 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.
