Feedback from recent clients

Elad gave a really deep going course on what LeSS is, how it relates to being agile and how to implement LeSS it in your organization.
When it comes to questions you immediatley recon that he has a bunch of hands on experience in LeSS... and that makes the course really outstanding.
And if you ever had problems with Zombies or Werewolves... don't hesitate to contact Elad. I'm sure he will be of help in this area too ;-)

“One of the best trainings I have ever participated in, definitely the best one related to Scrum and
organizational transformation.
The good thing also is that there was no initial agenda provided, so there were no too high or
concrete expectations, but the real life examples and common problems that are usually hidden
and are never spoken out loud, became so obvious. Thank you!”
Natalia Stalberga - Accenture 

"The training was about how to THINK in LeSS terms and not about how to do the things!  That was excellent! 
For some extent the training has transformed my mindset and vision on scaling organizations."
Romans Lukasenko - Business Analyst

“I had the pleasure working with Elad for over a year, helping me and the organization assimilate the Scrum framework. Elad is an excellent coach and teacher that really understands the dynamics and challenges within the organization, and gives very good and productive advice. I can say that his help changed dramatically what I and all team members think about Scrum and the way we practice it today.”
