"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

"Kelley lead Agile training for a new product team at Toolwire. Our goal was to provide Agile training for a group ~15 people with varying levels of experience with Agile to help use that methodology to launch products faster and to get market feedback faster. His preparation for our sessions was meticulous and gave me and senior management confidence in the training program. His training style was thoughtful and collaborative and non-dogmatic (concerning agile). His experience as a software manager really helped bring to life explaining the concepts and how we could tailor this methodology to help us most quickly. We've only had one sprint which is in-progress as of this recommendation but I see that the team and senior management are confident that we'll be able to deliver product faster and gather feedback faster compared to our previous approach. I recommend Kelley and am hopeful that we can bring him back to our organization again for training and coaching for other teams at Toolwire." -- Jon Garcia, VP Product Management at Toolwire

"...the training that Kelley and Elaine provided served as a good, strong foundation for the teams to understand scrum and be ready for thinking about and beginning their first sprints." -- Rebekah Jackson, Vice President, Program Management and Operations, Oracle, Pleasanton, California

"The on-site time with Elaine was very good, and has resulted in great progress on our side, where we were already using many agile processes we have adopted and formalized even more. We started using user stories in our requirements, we formalized our sprint schedule and have gotten into a good rhythm, we are using story points and have regularly scheduled rather than sporadic backlog grooming and sprint planning sessions. We also have committed to doing a retrospective every sprint, and are getting ready to do a Scrum Self Assessment." -- Tara Repka Flores, Assistant Vice President, Information Technology, Zenith Agribusiness Solutions
