Never have I attended such an engaging course and it makes my journey of Agile and Scrum journey much more fun and fulfilling. Trainer Stuart Mitchell has definitely take up the standard of teaching and coaching up many notches. Very insightful views from vast working experiences that Stu has. Highly recommended!
Dennis and team are just simply great to work with. They are prompt with their replies and clear with their instructions to ensure that learners get the best experience and learning journey with them. That's why I had chosen to go back to them for my CSPO course after taking my CSM course with them. I am looking forward to the post course gatherings and informal trainings which I heard they they organize after Covid.

The class was conducted in the best way possible (online zoom classes)! Stu is really passionate and shares many tips on facilitation. Highly recommend to anyone!
Quah Kai Li
Thanks for the CSM course, I found it a rewarding experience. The course was well set out, easy to understand, and had an amazing trainer and coach (Stuart). It wasn’t just about certification, but also gave insights to a lot of engagement techniques and real world experiences. I would highly recommend this course.
Senior Director at VISA Singapore
The CSPO course that I took recently from Agile Asia was excellent. The instructor Mr.Sam had made us understand the responsibility of a PO very easily, with good hands-on practices and Q&A sessions after each topic. I would recommend this course for anyone, who would like to acquire Agile skills in a short period.
Junior Product Associate
Absolutely wonderful course - The 2-day program was concise yet informative, also very engaging. Highly recommend anyone looking to do Certified Scrum Master to go with Agile Asia. The payment was also fuss-free, and if you are Singaporean, Skillsfuture credits were easily utilized
Abby Zhijun Wu
Excellent course. The trainer was very interactive and provided very useful examples and facilitation techniques that are relatable in the working world. It was a good and enriching experience engaging with the trainer and other team members via the different platforms used throughout the course.
Junior Product Associate
The program was concise and practical. I get to walk through the entire scrum process. Stu guided the team into role-playing for experiential learning! Much enjoyed! Word of caution: High energy and focus required throughout the course.
One of the best providers in the agile training space. The facilitators Stu and Sam have been there are done Scrum in large organizations and bring a wealth of knowledge. They convey concepts so well during classes that even people without a prior background can assimilate the knowledge easily.

Attended CSM course by Stu Mitchell. Really enjoyed his lesson. Taught us how to be a good ScrumMaster. The techniques and case studies and engagement by the trainer, really showed the role is key in the scrum team. Definitely recommend.
This is an excellent training program conducted by a highly professional, knowledgeable and practicing trainer supported by a very motivated team. Stu Mitchell demonstrated in the real-life example of how to facilitate a Scrum team as a Scrum Master. His role plays often depict the real-life example

Thanks again for the course, I found it excellent and connected directly to all the challenges we talked through (especially as I am in large scale scrum delivery, plugging into multiple waterfall teams/cultures - not easy!).
Executive Director, JP Morgan (October 2017)
As a course participant you will definitely learn how to implement Scrum, but more importantly, exposure to Stuart’s passion will give you both critical insights into the underlying, non obvious, issues and tools and techniques you can use to immediately increase the odds that your orgnanization’s

I cleared my Scrum Master certification examination with 100% mark. I am so grateful for your efforts! Stuart is an incredible trainer. I will highly recommend you to my friends and colleagues
I had some agile experience going into the training, and it was very helpful to learn what I do well. More importantly, I learned what I don’t do well and how to change that.
