"Our team loved the Agile training! The instructor [Elaine Bulloch] gave us lots of freedom to explore how Agile can be adapted to our team’s specific use. It was beneficial to be in a smaller environment where we could interact and brainstorm how Agile could benefit us. And the hands on activities make the training so tangible. Thanks so much for being a great partner!" -- Brendan Cheney, Strategy Consultant, Wells Fargo Innovation Group, San Francisco, California
"We asked SourceCell's Michael Kelley Harris and Elaine Bulloch to do a series of Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) courses for our people from SLAC and Stanford. I've heard nothing but positive comments about the CSM training. Everyone really enjoyed the classes. Many thanks to Kelley and Elaine for making it joyful, and of course for all the new knowledge they helped our teams gain!" -- Maggie Loera, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Menlo Park, California
"Hi Elaine. Thanks again for the Agile/Scrum training at SLAC last week - very helpful and useful for our team." -- Nikola Stojanovic, Senior IT Business Analyst, Stanford University / SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
"I've been consistently impressed by Elaine Bulloch's pragmatic Agility as a Scrum/Agile Coach and Scrum Master. I first observed her work on a complex software project, with multiple teams and a tight deadline. Over a six-month period, I saw her pragmatically keep the teams moving and delivering value to the business. During that period and since, I've had numerous chances to hear her perspective on Agile/Scrum priorities and challenges, and her approach to coaching. I have cotrained with Elaine over 10 times over the last two years. I trust her Agile judgment and professional approach to helping teams. I recommend her very highly." -- Michael Kelley Harris, Agile Coach, Certified Scrum Trainer, Owner of SourceCell
"The training was just what we are looking for to start a new agile team. Elaine helped us create a flexible, practical course plan for the day and she was extremely helpful in gathering feedback and helping iron out questions and issues after class with our product owner and Scrum Master. I'm hopeful that we grow each of the agile teams and reach a point to get a refresher from either of you two to continue growing in the self-management methodology." -- Jon Garcia, VP Product Management, Toolwire
"Elaine, Thank you for helping us launch our 3rd agile team. We are grateful for the training and expertise you've been able to share to enable our teams to start in the Agile/self-directed method. We are especially grateful for you sharing your expertise after the training sessions to provide feedback and share your experiences with teams you're leading elsewhere." -- Jon Garcia, VP Product Management, Toolwire
