What people say
Professional Scrum Master | Jean Kuppers
“Great training. Really enjoyed Cesario’s interactive training methods. He did a great job tailoring the content of the course to the needs of the group.
I can recommend this training to anyone who wants to understand SCRUM beyond just passing the assessment.”
Certified LeSS Practictioner | Aldert Polman
“Cesario is a very experienced trainer with lots of real-world examples. Besides that he is a nice and warm person with a true heart for SCRUM, LeSS, Lean and Agile. This made the LeSS pratitioner course very inspiring and worthwile!”
Wim van Broekhoven, Manager at PANalytical
Cesario gave good input for the vision to get a LEAN software process adopted that brought our previous SCRUM implementation to a higher level.
During the deployment he coached the organization with respect to the implementation and further improvements. He is capable of convincing management, developers and customer why LEAN should be used. He did this by giving good support to help teams implement it. He is strong in making things tangible so that people understand how to go from principle to practice. This resulted in a way of working which is supported by the developers, which was very difficult in the past.

Certified LeSS Practitioner | Remi Kok
I wanted to thank you again for an inspiring course. It was three long days with a lot of good practices. Loved the discussions and the contribution from Cesario’s experience. I learned that scaling up Scrum is made possible through the LeSS (Huge) Framework without losing the Scrum principles. For me there where a few great eye-openers. Going to use it that’s for sure.
Thanks Cesario for a great time.

Certified LeSS Practitioner | Diego Callizo
I am so happy I decided to participate in this training!. Cesario is a rare to find Agile Genius. I got tons of value by responding a lot of my old questions.
I.e. What are the musts in order to facilitate a successful Agile adoption?
I liked that the training is not based on prescribing roles and structures but mostly on changing the way we understand and think about complex systems. Some of the concepts explained like i.e. system thinking transform the way I understand big scale software development forever.
Certified LeSS Practitioner | Brigitte Thie
Inspirational, eye opener. A course I can recommend to everybody working on the transition towards agile working or working within an agile environment.
