The course does an excellent job of reinforcing the Agile principles throughout as well as elaborating on Scrum events in sections where most relevant. I am a Certified ScrumMaster, but I truly believe this course has set me up for broader organizational success. This self-paced course will be the perfect fit for developing more Agilists in our organization. I can't say enough great things about Agile Foundations!

Really enjoyed and highly recommend the self-paced course coached by Mike Lyon. He was able to explain topics clearly and contextualised them in real world scenarios which I was able to relate to. I was able to learn at my own pace and fit it around my busy schedule. Learning about the Agile mindset and Scrum has really got me thinking on how I can influence positive change in my organisation, it has set me up to adapt and succeed in my profession.

As an L and D professional (NOT a software person), I was worried I would get lost in 'techspeak'. That did NOT happen. This course was well laid out, interesting and the 'chunking' was done well. I was able to carve out MY time to get it completed and being able to go back and reread was very valuable. I would recommend to anyone who needs a basic understanding of AGILE that this is a great way to do it. Thanks KaiRise!

My most favorite and also helpful was the enlistment to truly commit/engage to/with the course. Sets the tone nicely. Perhaps offer a printer-friendly version of the workbook- there is a lot of color and photos, which is nice, but I like to write on paper and would waste a lot of ink if I printed the workbook as it is. Add a glossary! There are really great paraphrased definitions that make agile extremely applicable.
