Course Reviews

  • Samantha H., Head of Operations and HR Jul 18, 2023

    It was great to have opportunities to discuss the different challenges Im facing inside my organizations and get suggestions or examples from the other participants and instructor. That way, it was great learning about strategies but also how to take them back and apply them specifically within my organization.

  • Past Participant, Libro Credit Union Mar 22, 2022

    Haywood has a wealth of knowledge and experience on the topic of agile. He effectively tied teaching concepts with applying it to real-life scenarios, and allowed time for all participants to ask questions and share our thoughts & stories.

  • Past Participant, Libro Credit Union Mar 22, 2022

    There were many concepts and discussion topics that I found valuable that I can bring back to my role and share with my team. I found it interesting that folks in different industries and a different country are dealing with similar experiences. I found the breakout sessions extremely valuable as was the case study.

  • Connie S., Brand Manager, Mount Franklin Foods LLC Jun 16, 2020

    I've been to alot of AMA classes and this one was one of the best I've attended. The materials were very well developed and the flow of learning of perfect. Haywood was also an excellent teacher and facilitator. Highly recommend!

  • Maureen M., VP Sales & Marketing, Data Innovations Jun 16, 2020

    A couple of thoughts to make it even more effective.1) Suggest that the case study be recommended reading prior to the class so it makes contributions by the class even more effective. 2) Let people know how long each of the break out sessions will be and when the breaks and lunches will be. Haywood did this on Day 2 which was most helpful.
