“I’ve used Vitality Chicago to train our team and found that the Professional Scrum Foundations Training course was a great foundation for everyone to really get a sense of what SCRUM is all about. The class was very engaging and everyone was able to participate no matter their background. I also took the Scrum Product Owner Training Course through Vitality Chicago and it was extremely complimentary to the PSF class.”
