What Past Clients Are Saying

"The course was well organized and efficient!"

I took the PSM I course with Jordan Job in Chicago in August. The course was well organized and efficient, and we learned a lot from the instruction and interaction. I took the certification exam two weeks later and passed with a 99% score. I highly recommend Jordan and Responsive Advisors for Scrum training.

- Ed Tankersley, FanSided, Project Manager

"I came away with several strategies that I wanted to implement right away"

Responsive Advisors did an excellent job with the facilitation of their PSPO two-day class. There was a lot of great discussion with other product owners talking about real world problems and how to solve them, how to forecast agile delivery, and how do drive change especially when your organization hasn’t gone through an agile transformation. Robb kept the conversations engaging and the material was easy to understand. I came away with several strategies that I wanted to implement right away. I enjoyed this class so much I sent my employee (also a product owner). Thank you!

- Lisa Cowgill, Zebra Technologies, Product Owner

"I would highly recommend this course for those wishing to learn Scrum in real-world situations and preparing for the PSM certification assessment"

Robb Pieper provided a great experience in preparing for the Professional Scrum Master assessment. The course was very informative and engaging all while Robb kept things lively and entertaining. I guess I was prepared because, 2 days later, I passed the assessment with a high score. I would highly recommend this course for those wishing to learn Scrum in real-world situations and preparing for the PSM certification assessment.

- Dale Forbes, Gartner, Leadership Partner

"Highly recommend the class and instructor!"

Took the Scrum Foundations course with Jordan Job as instructor. He kept the class engaging, doing a great job presenting the material and handling questions. The class exercises were a very good experience for teaching how scrum works and why it works. Highly recommend the class and instructor!

- Sam Watters, Cray, Software Engineer

"Finally having the confidence to take the PSM-II, which I passed with a 92%"

Jordan was able to give me the holistic view of Scrum that I was missing even after working with it for years and having attended other training. I left the class excited and confident in my abilities, which is something that I can’t say that I’ve often experienced after a training class. I suppose the truest endorsement of the progress I made was finally having the confidence to take the PSM-II, which I passed with a 92%. If I wind up conquering the PSM-III, I know I’ll have Jordan to thank.

- David de Corlieu, PwC, Manager (Agile Delivery)
