Testimonials

Esther Asenjo Reyes Esther Asenjo Reyes
Java Developer at Atlassian“I attended the Scrum Master course of last week, and I absolutely loved it! The course was awesome, Ilan and Colin are awesome Agile coaches (extraordinary energy, I could feel how passionate they are about the subject, it was contagious) and the content was excellent.

I just filled in the feedback survey, and also took the CSM test successfully. Extremely happy with the experience and the course, I’d absolutely recommend it not just new adopters, but teams that have been on the Agile wave for some time. Thanks indeed!”

Russell Plummer Russell Plummer
AMP Transformation Program“Firstly, great course. I’m usually disappointed attending training courses and leave with the feeling of a missed opportunity but yours was first class. A really valuable couple of days. In particular I enjoyed seeing some cross over in to Lean principles with the use of pull and trying to minimise waste.”
Marshall Kim Marshall Kim
Head of New Products & User Experience at eBay Australia“Ilan is a gifted trainer and a successful advocate of Scrum. His certified ScrumMaster course was well framed and the content delivered effectively. His ability to transpose and apply the benefits of the Scrum framework to a complex development team structure, postulated his expert knowledge of Scrum.”
Serchen Pillay Serchen Pillay
Managing Consultant at C3 Business Solutions“1. I was tremendously impressed with the course: the presentations, discussions, supplementary material and exercises were spot on. I try to think about how I might deliver such a large amount of information in such a compressed timeframe and I couldn’t come up with any better ideas – fantastic job to both of you as well as to the unnamed support staff who were, no doubt, beavering in the background. I have, and will continue to, recommend this course as the first option for anyone seeking ScrumMaster certification and, beyond that, AxisAgile as the first port of call for all things Agile.

2. I obtained my certification more or less immediately – I wanted to test myself to see just how much I had learned and retained and passed the certification exam right off the bat! This is further testimony to the exceptional quality of your course.”

The course was awesome and it really inspired me to deep dive into the many benefits that Scrum principles will bring to us all in real life application within our professional careers.. My mission is to now try and apply what I have learnt within my current projects and overtime be progressively seen as an advocate for Scrum and endorse positive change to how we deliver outcomes within IT.”

Arun Bhatkhande Arun Bhatkhande
Senior Project Manager at IMA Management and Technology“I just wanted to convey my enormous gratitude towards the knowledge and experience you shared with us last week during the Melbourne Scrum Master training. I really liked the way you had split the course into digestible chunks (in true agile style), as a result I never felt like looking at the watch. :-) The table talks and experiences your shared with us were priceless. I definitely felt that I took home wealth of knowledge about Scrum in particular and now hoping to use it in my day to day work life.”

Ben Barefield Ben Barefield
Content Developer at Smart Sparrow“Just wanted to thank you again for a great course. I really appreciated your pragmatic approach to Scrum, it was refreshing to talk to people who have strong beliefs about it without being religious. You really helped to clarify the finer details that I was fuzzy on.

The book is a really easy read, too! Well done.”

Stein Inge Haaland Stein Inge Haaland
CEO at Embla Software Innovation“Today Ilan has given me a reason to continue on my quest to achieve better performance and better results in my IT-company. I have very high expectations from coaches on training courses like the two day CSM training I have just attended with several of my employees. This is even my second Scrum Master certification and it was worth every cent and every minute, and I can with my left hand on my heart and my right hand on my wallet, tell everyone that is participating in a team that is handling some sort of a project – GO – attend Ilan’s classes – not just developers but also management. Go for it – it’s well worth it”
Christian Van Stom Christian Van Stom
Scrum Coach at Resolution Media“I attended the AxisAgile Internationally recognised Certified Scrum Master course led by Ilan Goldstein and Colin Tan. The atmosphere, the support, the professionalism, was second to none. The course was fun, engaging, and we were all actively collaborating within self-organising teams before the end of day 1.

I passed the Certification Exam without any problems, and with that under my belt, I now have the confidence to lead and guide others in the Agile Scrum framework. 1 month on we have already started to make incremental improvements to our output quality, approach and delivery. Thanks again Ilan and Colin.”

Leah Owen Leah Owen
Service Delivery Manager at Microsoft“Having attended a Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) course facilitated by Ilan, I now have a deeper understanding and appreciation of Scrum. Ilan’s ability to provide real world examples and honestly discuss Scrum framework advantages and disadvantages were of tremendous business and personal value.

If you are looking for a Scrum expert to help you apply Scrum framework to your projects, Ilan and AxisAgile understand Scrum deeply and will provide the right assistance, not just text book learning, for practical and successful utilisation.”

Sachith Abhayaratne Sachith Abhayaratne
Associate Project Manager at Netstarter“I was lucky enough to be a part of Ilan’s Certified Scrum Master training session. What a marvelous trainer! Ilan is very practical and provided applicable, realistic examples throughout the course.

He is inspiring and refreshing. The way he delivered the training was so engaging as he presented with a sense of humanness, empowerment and inspiration so insightful and uplifting, I did not want the training to end. I wish him all the very best for his future endeavors.”

Michael Rembach Michael Rembach
Applications Development Manager at Transport for NSW“I engaged Ilan to run a training course for Scrum Product Owners. I found both his coaching style knowledge about Scrum to be exemplary and his ability to engage with the business level stakeholders to be excellent.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ilan for any Scrum coaching or training.”

Tharindu Sapukotana Tharindu Sapukotana
Senior Software Engineer at IFS“I had the great opportunity of attending a ScrumMaster training done by Ilan, and I can surely say he is one of the best trainers I have ever seen in my life. Ilan not only has an extensive knowledge in Scrum in both theoretical and practical aspects, but he is also an excellent presenter who can keep the audience glued to him throughout. No matter what question you throw at him, he has an answer for you with some good practical examples as well most of the time. I can recommend Ilan to anyone who is interested in learning about Scrum and Agile without any hesitation.”
Louisa Veidelis Louisa Veidelis
Product Project Manager at Reed Business Information“Ilan’s expertise in, and passion for the Scrum Methodologies made him a very knowledgeable trainer for the AxisAgile CSM Course. But it was his energy, excellent presentation skills and creative approaches that really got us all excited about taking our new learnings back to our workplaces. An engaging coach who inspires with his enthusiasm.”
Dror Ben-Naim Dror Ben Naim
CEO at Smart Sparrow“Smart Sparrow has a lot to do – from work for clients to our own investment in our technology and products.

At times we got into what can only be described as total chaos. That’s where Ilan came in and single handedly transformed the development process with awesome coaching and great advice. Thanks Ilan.”

Alon Tvina Alon Tvina
Head of Business Development & Sales at Optimove“I recently participated in a training course facilitated by Ilan and can honestly say that it’s one of the best I have ever attended. He is an energetic, knowledgeable and inspiring individual whose passion and enthusiasm is infectious. He possesses subject matter knowledge that is second to none which he effectively transfers to his course attendees through a dynamic delivery coupled with real world examples and well-constructed execution strategies.

I have already begun putting into practice many of my learnings from Ilan’s training and am realising the true benefits of having a trainer that brings so much more to the course than just content delivery. It is with pleasure that I recommend Ilan, and I hope to attend more of his training in the future.”
