"An excellent course - one to give your customers if they still have a waterfall-style fixed-price / fixed-scope mentality that isn't working. What makes this course superb are the simple but practical real world tips that make it easy for everyone to understand. For example 'avoid sprints on a Monday or Friday as this overlaps with personal leave'. All organisations using Dynamics should consider a Scrum methodology and this is a great place to start."
Daniel Hesketh, Director, MiiiA
"We’d been cherry picking aspects of agile frameworks in our projects for a while, but I was keen to learn more. Seeing one of Neil’s Dynamics 365 Saturday presentations (featuring the Lego!) really got me hooked. The Introduction to Scrum for Dynamics 365 course was a great way to help refresh and refocus my team to go all in."
"Neil’s expertise in using Scrum for Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement implementations is second to none – having the opportunity to tap into his knowledge and experience has helped me in addressing gaps in my knowledge so that I can ensure an optimal outcome for my clients in their agile Dynamics 365 implementations."
Greg Owens, Director & Technical Consultant, Vitalogy IT Solutions
"The course is proving to be fun, easy to consume and most of all: relevant. It does exactly as it promises – interprets Scrum in the context of delivering Dynamics 365 projects. It’s all very 'Neil' - light-hearted yet engaging and authoritative. Neil rightly speaks from a place of authority yet makes no assumptions about your level of knowledge of Scrum. Plus, your progress is all but guaranteed as each increment is short (rarely over 10 minutes) making it easy to fit a least one lecture in every day. Every Dynamics 365 project you ever work on should follow the Scrum 365 approach – we’d all have happier clients, less stressful projects and be happier in our work."
Joe Gill, Dynamics 365 Consultant and Microsoft MVP
"I found the Customery Scrum course was a great help in providing a clear and concise approach in using Scrum on Dynamics 365 projects."
John Grace, CEO, North52
"Scrum 365 gave me excellent step-by-step guidance on how to apply Scrum techniques to my Dynamics 365 projects. It was awesome to get lots of real world advice from Neil like ‘One product owner is better than two or three’ which I felt gave me confidence in my decision making. In my view this course really should be mandatory for anyone starting a Dynamics 365 project."
Jette Silberbauer Gad, CRM Business Consultant at Massive Dynamics
Thank you so much for an excellent course. We use Scrum in our Dynamics 365 business on a daily basis, but there is always more to learn and I certainly had a great learning outcome from your course. I look forward to the next one. An example of a small change we started yesterday during our daily scrum was focusing on "what did we complete and what do we want to complete" (with emphasis on complete) instead of just talking about what we did. Small change, big difference.
Nick Doelman, Microsoft MVP and Manager of CRM Solution Development, BDO
"When faced with a massive Dynamics 365 project with hundreds of pages of requirements, we knew that we needed to think different to be able to build the system in an efficient and manageable way. Applying the Scrum principles covered in Neil’s course, the massive requirements document was broken down into a set of manageable sprints. Our dev team feel both excited and empowered to be able to participate in establishing the effort and allocation of tasks. Our daily scrums were key in collaborating effectively to delivering value to the customer successfully. We are continuing to evolve our use of Scrum and I can’t image taking on any future Dynamics 365 project using any other implementation methodology."
Julian Sharp, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Consultant/Trainer, Vigence
"I’ve been using agile approaches to Dynamics 365 projects for a while now, but Neil’s course has helped me crystallise how I to do better in future, with the added advantage of preparing me for another certification! All organisations adopting Dynamics 365 should take this course."
Joel Lindstrom, Consulting Principal at Hitachi Solutions, CRM Audio podcast host and Microsoft MVP
"Neil knows Dynamics, and I can't think of anyone better suited to teach you how to apply the principles of agile Scrum to Dynamics 365 deployments."
