I highly recommend Bachan\'s Workshop for anyone in the IT Project
Susan Kuehn , says...
““Before attending the seminar I thought I understood Scrum but I was wrong. Bachan took us thru the methodology and more important took a deep dive into the roles and responsibilities involved with Scrum. This truly was valuable for me as I had a very vague understanding of the Scrum Masters and Product Owners true roles. Excellent experience I highly recommend attending to anyone who is considering Agile and Scrum for their busin
\"Agile is being adopted widely now than ever before. It behooves all project professionals to learn and practice the principles of this methodology. Bachan has put together a very worthwhile course which provides a superb introduction to Agile from soup to nuts. His delivery style is perfect and the exercises were very relevant. I recommend Bachan\'s work to anyone without hesitation....\"

Bindu Wavell Bindu Wavell, Chief Architect and Owner at Zia Consulting, Inc

"A college and I took Bachan's 1 day Pay it Forward Agile & Scrum Training recently. We really enjoyed the course, especially the exercises. Really solid foundations for both Agile and SCRUM.

Eduardo Martinez Eduardo Martinez, Project Manager and Business Analyst at ELGE Martinez Consulting, LLC

" Mr. Bachan demonstrates that he manages very well the topics and I was impressed the way and the style he used training the audience helping to understand the scrums foundations and the roles and the approach to adopt the Agile methodology.
The training was very interesting. Some of the topics that I enjoyed most was the Scrum Roles Details where it was identified all the traditional Project Manager responsibility aligned within the Agile Methodology. And also, I enjoyed learning about the technique used to Planning, Estimation Sprint and the Scrum Diagram.
Thanks Mr. Bachan for your time and dedication to this training. I think that Agile Practices is something that you should consider as an option if you want to improve your way to deliver software solution.

Grahame Price Grahame Price, Director of Software Development at BuilderMT

" Bachan's Scrum Master training was very effective and informative. I learned a lot in a short period of time, due to his intuitive methods and presentation style. He is excellent when dealing with a group of people who have different skill levels and got everyone involved effectively in the group exercises, which were key to learning the team concepts.

I would recommend Bachan as a trainer and facilitator - he knows his subject and is able to transfer that knowledge effectively.

Rose Strubel Rose Strubel, Manager at Netcracker
" Bachan's course provided a good foundation on how Scrum can be applied to any project in any sector. He gave good guidelines and tools to use to start using Scrum. I would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in Scrum.
Bachan is an excellent presenter and keeps everyone engaged during the entire class.
