I sat a 2 day Profesional Scrum Product Owner course with Simon. Probably the best training course I've sat to date, very informative, Simon is very easy to approach and can explain things clearly. I would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking to take any type of Scrum training.
I would definitely recommend Simon for his Scrum training. I attended a 2 day training course with some colleagues of mine who have a variety of experience levels. As somebody who is relatively new to Scrum, the 2 days provided me with enough information on the Scrum background, roles and practices to take this into everyday work. Simon is incredibly knowledgeable on the topic, engaging and somebody I would encourage you to learn from whatever level you are at.
Simon came in to deliver Scrum foundation training across various IT and Business areas here at the University of York. I cannot recommend this training and this trainer highly enough, Simon was professional, fun and engaging. He structured the class well with a good balance of theory, action learning and examples from his own professional life. Brilliant!
Simon is a brilliant trainer who taught me well about the Scrum framework. He explained the material excellently and I got 100% on the assessment as a result.
Simon delivered a really strong PSM 2 class, making good use of technology to allow us to continue learning even in the middle of lockdown. The quality of the course was very high and I feel that we managed to cover all the course areas just as well as I would have hoped to cover them on an in person course. I really enjoyed the pace of the class and being able to see a little bit deeper into being a scrum master.
Just completed scrum master 2 training with Simon all virtually during the Covid lockdown. The training and course was excellent which due to expertise, experience and energy provided by Simon. Engaging, challenging and would highly recommend!
I attended the PSM I Scrum Master course with Simon through my employer. I found Simon's course interesting, engaging and very useful in helping me pass my exam which I did first time! Simon is very knowledgeable and I particularly appreciated the fact that there were lots of tangible and practical examples covered in the course rather than just theory. I am hoping to study for PSM II and Simon will be my first port of call.
I attended Simon’s PSPO I training, the first one in the UK done virtually (due COVID 19). I had my doubts about 2 day virtual all day training, but it was absolutely fantastic! Even that the training days were long, like they would be in the in-person training, they energised me. Simon is a great trainer with a wealth of knowledge and a lovely very approachable attitude. I passed the exam with a first go -thanks, Simon!
Simon has abundant knowledge, experience and knows very well how to teach Scrum. I did the PSM course, and I was lucky to do it with Simon, he is an expert in Scrum and treasures more than 10 years experience working in agile project management with Scrum and a lot more in IT. Thank you, it was great learning with you
Thought the course was fantastic. Material delivered in a really engaging way and Simon K was a great tutor.
Excellent class which uses a good combination of classroom teaching, hands-on exercises and group discussions. Good pace and great anecdotes and past experiences shared by the instructor to help position the topic and bring it to life.
As someone who is relatively new to Scrum and from an HR background I found the training to cater for all levels without unnecessary jargon. The two days were nicely paced and at no point did it feel that a particular topic or section was rushed. I particularly liked how Simon used a variety of examples that were not specific to software development to facilitate learning.
I've been a Scrum Master several time and this is a class where you can find other Scrum Masters which share huge insights and excellent tips about their experience. I strongly suggest to attend this class if you want to improve your Scrum Master skills and knowledge of the role.
The course was facilitated by Simon Kneafsey, our Professional Scrum Trainer, who did a fantastic job of creating a safe environment, offering his own experiences, encouraging self reflection and delivering the course content at a good pace. I'd highly recommend.
A really enjoyable and informative course with a good balance of Scrum theory and product / value creation. Simon is an excellent and engaging communicator and tailored the course well to the interests and needs of the attendees.
An excellent course that really brings Scrum to life!!
Really great teacher and coach, Simon facilitates Scrum framework understanding and runs courses in a really good interactive manner. I recommend without any doubt.
A very useful two day workshop from a true Scrum expert who provided a great insight into the theory and real world applications of the framework. I found Simon a compelling speaker who was easy to listen to.
