Roman’s Scrum Certified Product Owner course was extremely well run and provided a great deal of value to me even though I had already been working as a Product Owner for a couple of years. The level of expertise Roman has was invaluable in both improving my Scrum skills and inspiring myself and the other people taking the course. If you ever have the opportunity to take a Scrum course run by Roman I’d highly recommend it.

Roman teaches a very engaging CSPO course with a good mix of interaction and presentation. He is obviously very experienced and knowledgeable–a real authority. I’ve enjoyed and benefitted from the course a lot.
