Joshua made learning Scrum easy and totally clear that one can walk in and tweak one’s mindset and leave with Scrum enabled mentality. I would totally recommend everyone who are involve in the software development team to attend your Scrum Master course with Joshua. You’ll definitely have great fun learning Scrum with him!

CeLia Lau from China attended 5 Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course in KL

I was fortunate to have a chance to take Joshua’s Scrum Master course in Seoul, Korea. As a design-centered startup founder who’s worked with many hackers over the years, it was very helpful to finally learn the official Scrum framework. Joshua’s course will give you the taste of the the Scrum way of thinking without spoonfeeding the “right” answers, letting you form your own mental model and your own decisions. I’ll be honest — Scrum is no silver bullet and I may not want to adopt it as-is. But I appreciate that Joshua’s course laid it out well so that I can form my own opinions.

Keywon Chung from Seoul , South Korea attended 5 Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

Joshua’s passion is not only limited to teaching Scrum but also about helping organizations improve their processes. He certainly demonstrated this to us. His training is informative and really engages user participation. I highly recommend it to organizations who want to embrace Scrum.

Zulkefli Mansor from Malaysia attended Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

Joshua’s training was very practical and enlightening; it was essential in clearing some misconceptions and doubts I had about the process.
I would really recommend his course to anyone wanting to improve on Scrum practices and understanding of its fundamentals.
Carlos Lima from Malaysia attended Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

Joshua has spirit as an agent of change for software development industry by implementing Scrum. The Professional Scrum Master class taught by Joshua was really efficient and lively. He brings the spirit of Scrum to the class since the beginning. He could answer all questions in a professional way. Very recommended to be your coach for taking Scrum courses.
Aditya Wirawan from Malaysia attended Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

I came to the class conducted by Joshua last week with a skeptical mind as I’ve seen a lot of instances where Agile Scrum easily being misused and waiting for this to question the quality and reliability of Scrum. Most of us looking for theoretical and practical in Agile Scrum, but Joshua nailed it with even bigger than that. Something that last longer to the attendees and it’s a self-realization and beliefs. Scrum is not a methodologies, processes or best practices. It’s a framework that really fits into the current software development world where self-organization, creativity and innovation is more important than ever. Being innovative or being in Agile Scrum takes courage. I believe a stagnant status-quo will be wiped out very soon in Southeast Asia. And I thought the training was simply brilliant. Thanks Josh! Scrum on!

Fairul Rizal from Malaysia attended 5 Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

I attended a 2-day Professional Scrum Master course given by Joshua during the fall of 2012. It was inspiring and brought me to betterment.
He is professional, passionate, and personable, in- and outside of the classroom.
Yuen-Chi Lian from Malaysia attended Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

Joshua is a highly motivated Scrum coach with a strong belief in the power of Scrum. He has helped many organizations adopt Scrum. His training skills are exceptional, because he really drives technical number-centric people like myself who are very old-school project management to be creative and engages his students in highly constructive discussions that make you realize the importance of Scrum and how you can apply it with your projects(especially those projects where users don’t have clear constant requirements to start off with). He provides excellent challenging case studies and scenarios during his workshops, and guides you and your team to stay within the Scrum framework, and come up with the best transparent, courageous and creative solution which you can commit to.

Joshua conducts hands-on, training workshops and encourages thinking outside the box and helping project managers to adopt Scrum and try their best to convince their management of the benefits of adopting scrum and empowering their development teams. Since Scrum is a bottom-up process and a new framework which is the most popular Agile tool for software development, I highly recommended everyone who is interested in learning Scrum to take a course with Joshua.

Rima Daoud from Dubai attended 5 Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course

I attended the Professional Scrum Master course conducted by Joshua in April 2013 at Dubai.
Joshua’s 2 day sprint was really a breeze to attend. He in-fact showed us by example how to play the role of a Scrum Master. By facilitating healthy discussions, he helped us to derive the answers. In-fact, this is what a Scrum Master does best. He knows that, we the “Development Team” in this case had at-least 10+ years of experience in managing Projects.
His job, which he very smoothly executed was to Facilitate our open discussion and help us realize that Knowledge workers need not be commanded or controlled. For a defined goal, they will come up with the best approach.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Joshua’s course to anyone interested in learning the fine art & science of being a Scrum Master :-)
