Jessica Åsell, Linkon
"Good mix between theory and practice as well as an engaging course leader who could tell a story. Can't think of anything that should have been done differently."
Krister Arledal, Concrete IT
"I recently took Tobias Certified Scrum Master class in Stockholm and can safely say his work as a trainer/mentor is among the best I have ever experienced. The course itself was great with lots of empiric examples bur the real profit from the training sessions was the lessons learned from Tobias in his work with the students to enforce creation and maintenance of beautiful teams. This is team leadership at its best. Sharp and humoristic, you never want to stop listening to what Tobias has to say."
Torbjörn Stake, Product Manager at Evry Forest & Logistics Solutions
"We got to move around all the time, good commitment and energy. Fun and rewarding discussions. Good exchange of knowledge."
Cecilia Sjöberg, Tromb
"Tobias has a pedagogical and coaching approach, where students are encouraged to form their own answers under gentle guidance of Tobias experience. The course and the way of teaching was great and the last one hour of the course turned into an aha moment that turned an otherwise great course into an even greater memorable moment. I give my warmest recommendations to Tobias and his professionalism, effectiveness and experience within agile practices. His knowledge in building great teams will benefit many organisations."
Jakob Hussfelt, IT Management Consultant & Owner, Hussfelt Netware AB
