“I took Jack’s training class for the Scaled Agile Framework, SAFe Agilist certification class from March 15 to March 16. Right from the first day of class, I was impressed by the depth and wealth of his knowledge and advance mastery for the SAFe materials, Lean Agile, Scrum, Project Management, Product Management, multi-industries experience etc. Jack is a good trainer, mentor and coach. He was very patient with our questions, his class was a real simulation of the real life scenarios we will encounter. I enjoyed the training class a lot. To my surprise, when I started studying on my own for the certification exam, it was pretty easy because Jack had touched them all during class and I passed my certification exam with very high score. Thank you very much Jack, I highly recommend Jack, he is the trainer of trainers.” – Abi Oluborode, MBA, PMP®, PMI-ACP, CSM, KFP, SA, SPC4
