“Joseph is an excellent Agile instructor who not only knows the material cold, but can teach it in a way that sticks. He is an excellent communicator and made the material interesting and relevant to all of us. As well as being practical, the content nicely covered the PMI-ACP syllabus, so the course was a great way to prepare for the PMI-ACP exam and contributed to my passing it with flying colors.

I highly recommend any of his courses to anyone looking to get a solid footing in the Agile world.”

“I attended Joseph’s PMI-ACP prep course in September of 2012. The class was well run and I feel it was worth my time. I enjoyed learning from and working with Joseph and the other members of the class to better understand Agile concepts. While I have not taken the PMI-ACP exam, I know Joseph’s class covered things that I would have not known to focus on without his guidance.

I attended a class on Agile at the PMP conference where he trained Project Management Professionals on Agile related topics. His experiences and tips were very valuable and helpful.”
Norbert Klinger, PMP, Manager at Deloitte Consulting
“I attended a presentation Joseph gave at a project management conference, “Integrating Agile in Waterfall World’, and found this knowledge of agile methodology and the challenges using it in a ‘multicultural’ project management world on the mark. His presentation content and style was down to earth and honest about the challenges and successes in using agile and waterfall methodologies together. If you want the real deal on how to make these two worlds work together for you, I recommend contacting Joseph.”
