    Łukasz Kurzeja
    Chapter Lead

  • For me introducing OKRs within the company, or even department at the start, as an example of different approach is worth of trying. Also some specific games, practices for sure will enrich my private portfolio of techniques used in my work on daily basis.

    Jakub Piecuch
    Scrum Master
    ABB

  • They make it easier, help to work out solutions, giving the team the right space, both time and place, as well as the oppressive atmosphere conducive to work on the areas of decision-making. This helps to develop decisions from the bottom up in such a way that the areas of decision-making remain among people and not the decision maker.

    Michał Kosiorek
    Head of HR
    Stermedia

  • Calm, making sure that we understand, answering a lot of questions, examples.

    Marek Charkiewicz
    DEVOPS Team Leader
    StepStone

  • All set of workshops was inspiring. Specifically, I would like to work with the team more closely, get to know them better. For example, run the moving motivators game. Also, a common definition of our goals or OKRs seem to have great potential.

  • Znałem ćwiczenia, czytałem książki a mimo to gorąco polecam udział w szkoleniu. Masa inspiracji i ciekawych dyskusji.

    Scrum Master

  • Podchodząc do tematu szkolenia dla produkt managera miałem wiele wątpliwości. Wszystkie punkty z mojej listy pomógł mi rozwiązać Pan Daniel. Nikt z konkurencji nie potrafił skutecznie zaproponować mi targetowanego szkolenia... dopiero kontakt z firmą Valkir Academy pozwolił poczuć mi się komfortowo. Wszystkim polecam szkolenie gdyż:

    • jest realizowane przez praktyka
    • jest poparte ciekawymi przykładami
    • pozwala przygotować się do roli product ownera
    • coach potrafi precyzyjnie kierować szkoleniem (elastycznie je dopasowywać) jeżeli wymaga tego sytuacja tzn. nie trzyma się twardych, założonych ram programowych
    • przygotowuje niespodzianki z zakresu omawianego tematu takie jak dodatkowe symulacje

    Wszystkim polecam szkolenia w tej firmie, nie tylko z uwagi na atrakcyjny program ale również z uwagi na bardzo konkurencyjna cenę i indywidualne podejście do klienta.
