Here’s what some of our clients had to say about us:

“I took a Scrum Master course and was completely impressed. Agile and Scrum are concepts that do not exist in a vacuum. Without real business contexts, and especially real software development experience, Agile doesn’t mean much. It was Jim’s ability to teach the material with his finger always on best practices that made the class a home run.”

Pete Lunenfeld, Executive V.P., Registry Monitoring Insurance Services, Inc.

“I recently took the Certified ScrumMaster class. Not only did our instructor thoroughly understand the course material and knows how to teach it well but he also has many real-world examples to further enhance one’s learning. I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot!”

Barbara Kroczak, Senior Program Manager, Riverbed Technology

“CSM training with Artisan was the best training that I have ever taken. The class was lively and interactive. They covered Agile fundamentals and material relevant to the CSM exam. They were not hesitant to take questions and had lots of examples from real world experience. I passed the CSM exam with an almost perfect score without help from any other sources.”

Farhan Hamlani, Information Technology, E*TRADE Financial Corporation

“I had the pleasure of attending a 2-day seminar on Agile and it was fantastic. If you are looking to improve your understanding of Agile from someone who has done it (not just someone who read it) for years, Artisan is the one. I have attended many other seminars but none as plain and simple. Most coaches add an unnatural aura to Agile as if it were some mystic and ancient magic. Artisan presents these concepts in a dispassionate yet highly precise manner.”

Bhagavan Jalli, Director of Design, Innominds
