Bachan presented an eight hour Agile & Scrum Training session on 2/14/2013 in Englewood Colorado. The training format, the excercises and the tools he used to guide the class through the concepts made it easy to follow and understand the Scrum Framework and the role of a Scrum Master. The pace of the training was very appropriate and Bachen displayed expert knowledge of Scrum as he was able to clearly answer questions from class participants as well as to guide us into understanding the creative power of the process. Bachen is a well practiced trainer as was made apparent by this session. I highly recommend him as Scrum Trainer.

I attend Bachan's Agile and Scrum training as a refresher class for my CSM certification. I was pleased to rediscover the benefits of Scrum through Bachan's creative teaching and insightful applications of Scrum. His background as an architect makes for an in depth understand of Scrum toward technology but he also elaborates on business process principles that make Scrum applicable to other industries. I highly recommend Bachan's classes.

Bachan did a great job explaining Scrum concepts, controlling the pace of the class and fielding questions.

Bachan's Profile
Daniel Hirschlein , says...
“I attended Bachan\'s Agile/Scrum Project Management Workshop. Bachan is very knowledgeable about Agile Project Management and did a great job at explaining the details of Scrum. Bachan combines theory and practical application using a variety of techniques during the workshop to such as individual and group activities, brainstorming, and instructor-led training. 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....\"
