“Thoroughly enjoyed class. Class material was insightful and content very well organized. Miljan brought very much to the table with regards to his experience, his mindset, and his enthusiasm. Best virtual/online course I have taken, and not just including those in the agile space.”

“This is one of the best courses I took. The topics were well organized and thought through. The entire setting was very interesting and engaging. As a participant, I just could not stand aside and not participate in the multiple discussions that the group had because of the way how the topics were discussed. Miljan was successfully facilitating the discussion and helping us understand those topics that the group had questions about.”

“The way this class was delivered is excellent and different than all of my previous training from various trainers. Learned a lot from the discussions, articles, and videos. Miljan’s experience and global exposure helped a lot in delivering the content of this course in an effective way.”

“Excellent class, lots of great material that can be leveraged as I go forward in my professional career. Miljan’s class is an open environment and fosters good discussions across participants.”
