Awesome SCRUM with Meirik
It's a one place to help you discover, understand and advance your SCRUM knowledge and practice. Meirik's team is so focused, determined, and committed that you have no other way than succeed + friendly and very supportive))). I participated in 4 trainings and successfully passed all of them (PSMII, PSPOI, PSPOII, PSUI). What can I add? I just recommend that team: 10/10 (NSP score)))))

This was my third Meirik course
This was my third Meirik course, and they have all been of the utmost quality. The Meirik trainers are highly knowledgeable and very skilled at delivery, maintaining a high level of energy and participation. The use of break-out rooms and virtual whiteboards delivered a learning environment that in some ways surpassed physical training. Highly recommended.



Meirik - always the best experience
Learning with Meirik trainers is always the best experience. They, besides their knowledge, know how to find the best pace to gain the information. They can "feel" what will be the best way to conduct the training. For sure! I'll back to the Meirik for more.
