“I’ve worked in project management for the last 7 years using a waterfall method, understanding most organizations are moving toward an Agile methodology I decided to dive right in and learn more about Scrum, obtaining a certification was the cherry on the top. The workshop was great. The technology for the virtual workshop worked perfectly. Devon was very punctual and he kept the pace of the class moving along while taking the time to answer questions. He is very knowledgeable on the subject and helps you understand the framework through real world examples. If you are considering getting your CSM, I highly recommend you go for it and do it with BeardedEagle.”

“The consequences of Covid has hit us all in one way or another. Some of my friends were hit with job loss and found Devon Morris’s classes beneficial in getting back out into the workplace better than leaving it. Finding myself in a similar situation, I dropped everything and signed up for my class. As a teacher for 9 years before entering the world of government contracting, I have always held myself to a high standard of making whatever information I am presenting fun, with high energy and jokes, to make everyone comfortable. When I say I have never been to a class, I was sad that it ended. It was an 8-hour class. I clearly had adult responsibilities to handle, but this class was by FAR one of the best experiences I have ever had. I walked away, feeling as if I’d been doing this for a while. Devon has high energy, fun, hilarious, and very knowledgeable! Kudos to BeardedEagle. Many people know how to do something, but they can’t teach it in a way that is digestible for many. Any other certifications that I can take through BeardedEagle, I’m going to do it!”
