I took Bob’s class through Microtrain in Chicago. His class is probably one of the best I have taken in an while for IT certifications!
Bob’s workshop was a great addition to my tool belt as I was preparing for my PMI-ACP certification exam. I highly recommend him!
It was a great cert course and I apply the principles every day. I recommend Bob highly if you’re thinking about Agile instruction or thought leadership.
I just completed Bob’s training course to become a Certified Scrum Master and absolutely loved his teaching style! The class was very informative and conducted at a perfect pace. He made the learning extremely fun and easy while answering all questions and providing real-world examples when needed! I highly recommend his classes!!
Bob taught an Agile class I attended. I really enjoyed his practical teaching and relaxed approach. He was always encouraging the “students” and gave everyone equal respect. It was also apparent that he is very knowledgeable about transforming organizations. As a CEO, I’m keeping Bob in mind as I transform our organization and recommend him to your team as well!
In my 20+ years of project management and director level experiences, I have had the pleasure of hiring many different instructors and attended their courses, as well as others. Hands down Bob is one of the best instructors. I recently took his Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) workshop and thoroughly enjoyed the course. Bob clearly has a deep understanding of multiple Agile frameworks and practices, and his instruction style is engaging, thought-provoking, and personable. The classroom was lively throughout and conducive to ensuring that everyone was ready to become a CSM. Through Bob’s course and recommended approach to studying for the CSM exam, I was able to pass on my first try with a 100% score. I highly recommend Bob for individual or group instruction for any Agile knowledge area.
When our PMO decided to move forward with a CSM training, honestly, I prepared myself for a 3-day snooze fest. I was delightfully surprised when Bob managed to engage a busy group Project Managers for 3 days; laptops were CLOSED! And all participants passed the certification exam at the end of our class. Thanks, Bob!
I come from the technical side of Agile, so I used to wave off “management” coaching as fluffy and ineffective. Then I worked with Bob on a large enterprise Agile transition, and I changed my mind. Here was a man who could focus on the management side, and still keep everybody’s feet firmly on the ground. He never stooped to vague “people concepts” and marketing buzzwords. He is definitely a people person, but a relentlessly concrete one. More than anything, Bob reminds me of the first few lines of Kipling’s “If”. The man has the knowledge, and he has integrity. I recommend him without reservation.
