What People Are Saying

Mark Nestel

Ken Rubin’s class is outstanding. The scrum diagrams are very great learning tools to help remember key Scrum Framework steps and methods. I enjoyed the entire course. Glad to be a scrum master and glad to know Ken as a scrum resource. Very impressed.

Emily Kamrud

This course was very helpful in my development and onboarding to my current role. The layout is very user friendly, visually pleasing, & keeps the users attention all the way through. This course is very helpful for anyone who will be working with a Scrum style framework, but also a great refresher course for someone who is already currently in a scrum style role.

Suganthy Nair

Wow! I was blown away by the content. The crisp, short and excellently worded videos are visual treats that explained scrum concepts like no one has ever done before. “Learning Scrum the Visual Way” video training by Ken Rubin is “THE” course if anyone, yes, anyone wants to understand scrum, not just upcoming or seasoned scrum masters.

Italo Bett

This short online course is very dynamic, didactic and easy to follow. Ken’s examples are practical and based in real life scenarios, which is very useful. A great introduction to Scrum and preface to Scrum training.
