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.

Interessante training van Cesario Ramos van Agilix. Bij dit type trainingen is de dynamiek en het succes in mijn ogen sterk afhankelijk van deelnemers en trainer. Het deelnemer veld was divers en interessant wat leidde tot goede constructieve discussies en verschillende inzichten op dezelfde problematiek. De facilitatie van Cesario was constructief, uitdagend en de focus lag erop om de oplossing in de groep te vinden. Ik ben met een aantal goede inzichten en contacten weg gegaan, ik kan de training van harte aanraden.

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.
