"I truly enjoyed the emphasis on alignment, and I gained knowledge on which items I can pursue. Personally I enjoyed the LEGO-simulations. It was a super cool way to learn and to make us think the process of a Program Increment through. It gave me some ideas on how to pass on the knowledge."

Nanna Nielsen,

"I got a better grasp of how the various subjects of SAFe fit together between the various levels (Epics, Capabilities, Features). I liked the focus on not just being a walk-through of the material on the website, but the focus on the lean-agile principles through excellent examples and material. Jesper was great at answering questions and engaging with us. I would highly recommend it to my friends and colleagues."
