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.
