As the level of knowledge differed so much it was hard to have a good level that caught everyones needs. For me that has been part of a few PI Plannings it was good to get more insight in the SAFe methodology.
Akbar Nawaz Khan - Review: 8/10
I found this course to be very Interesting and look forward to implementing the SAFe Framework. I liked the way our trainer delivered the course by describing the important concepts in this Agile Framework very well, in the form of diagrams, activities, kahoot... I believe that it would be important how we can relate this to our day to day development tasks and adapt to this new methodology. One possible suggestion from my end would be to focus more on the exam questions so that we can easily go about getting the certification.

Sam Takeuchi - Review: 8/10
Frank did a great job for time keeping.
Basil Joseph - Review: 8/10
Good course! Very informative and practical. The engaging aspect of the course allowed you to vividly think about how you could apply the theories of the SAFe into real project scenarios.
Marek Tvarůžek - Review: 8/10
i liked it very much, i can tell that speaker has experience with software development. i liked the practical exercises
Takatoshi Mochizuki - Review: 9/10
It was great lesson. I felt that, in case the coach ask members to proceed some activity(to write something in sticker, to discuss something in team), it is sometimes difficult to understand what should I do.
Tomáš Jurkovský - Review: 9/10
Jens Tobien - Review: 7/10
More examples from real life e.g. an existing Definition of Done, some written stories from different Business Segments Trainer was well structured and could answer all questions professionally
Marek Adamka - Review: 9/10
The content was quite thorough, although first day was more focused on the scrum on team level, but the second day was much more useful for people with knowledge about scrum. Nice choice of videos to show, that brought another perspective. Also the PI simulation on day 2 was very well prepared and organized.
Filip Jurnečka - Review: 9/10
The trainer (Franc) was amazing. Obviously knowledgeable, experienced talker and coach explaining the topic with real engagement. The materials were solid. My only issues are a missing communication map for the individual roles that would help clarify the responsibilities of the various roles even more and in our particular group lack of time for the exercises. Which were justifiably replaced by heated discussion and feedback from the trainer, so I guess I'm more complaining about the course length where we could have utilised one more day easily.
Jakub Šarmír - Review: 9/10
I think it is upgrade of classic agile so the company and its employees should be familiar with Scrum and there is no need to spend so much time on this topic. Everything else was perfect
Jesse Wu - Review: 10/10
Very good training
Zico Hu - Review: 8/10
The coach has a lot of game to practice for deeper understand SAFe.
Lina Li - Review: 10/10
The teacher does not tell you something, but he ask you something. It makes me to think on myself.
Anantha Ghante - Review: 9/10
I liked the informal atmosphere created by the trainer thus encouraging participants to more actively involve during the training.
Xiang Zhang - Review: 9/10
First time to experience that the trainee needs to pull as much as possible information from the trainer which makes this session more interesting and useful. The session is well facilitated by the trainer, he encourages people to ask questions and push people to think hard.
Weidong Shi - Review: 10/10
I like the interactive style of the teaching method. The learning content becomes easier understanding for trainees. But I feel the training duration could be extended to three days so that we could have more specialized time to listen more lecture from mentor.
Chang He Ch Li - Review: 9/10
some training video is very interesting and instructive.
Hanny Chen - Review: 10/10
The trainer speaks English very clearly. We can easily understand. But in some videos that were showed in the course, some people speaks English with strong accent. I cannot understand.
Mohamed Essadki - Review: 8/10
The course has a rich theoretical content. As a beginner in ASML, I liked more the discussions during the training, because it has helped me to have an insight of leveling group working way.
Aleksandar Milutinovic - Review: 8/10
For me as an experienced scrum dev and agilist pace was good, but maybe for unexperienced people time was limited. Actually pace was good, but some topics could be covered in more details, like estimations. Overall, very good.
Manasa Marisonne GOWDA - Review: 9/10
Training session was good .. good if session is made still more interactive
Enoch Li - Review: 9/10
it changes my mind for work method.
Li LIN - Review: 10/10
I like the way the trainers train . what's the responsibility for each role, I think more details can be taught.
Tiger WEI - Review: 9/10
One good methodology. Good trainer. If the course can invite the leader to give some presentation on his/her understanding on SAFe, it is much better.
Peifu Qin - Review: 9/10
I like: The teacher is gook. He introduced everything clearly. The teaching materials abundant. Could be improved: still not very clear how to implement the knowledge in my work
Guangyi Luo - Review: 8/10
it is very practical training based on our level. Maybe we can prepare a case just from our area (Pure driver componnets)
Paris Giazitzidis - Review: 7/10
location and planning was perfect. Material is good and trainer also in very good level.
Arthur Szydlik - Review: 7/10
In general good session . One personal remark realated to size of the group but this is just a SAFe is.
Svein Winberg - Review: 8/10
Content had the right balance in terms of catering for the different Level of knowledge of the attendees With the first day introducing Agile and SAFE principles and the second day was focusing on the team Level interaction & release Trains. Trainer had the right Level of enthusiasm and experience. Great that she spent less time on slides and more on discussions and practical excercises. Was also flexible when it came to the agenda, hence we were able to set aside some time for discussions on issues and problems we were facing in our own organization.
Morten Berge - Review: 9/10
I liked the storytelling kind of presentation, and not so much powerpoint presentation. It made the course more lively and interesting
Sudipta Datta - Review: 8/10
Nice, trainers were very supportive. Learned new thing, new process, new medthodology
Amol Dorle - Review: 10/10
clear idea of scaled agile
Michael Robinson - Review: 8/10
Good balance of theory and exercises. Very flexibly managed by Abram.
Kein-Wai Cheung - Review: 9/10
I believe, the teacher had a hard time with a big group like ours, but still, he was able to make everybody engaging the exercises and the theory part. Content was quite a lot in few days, but easy to digest. Also, teacher was quite clever using videos and drawing examples in order to explain some of his lessons.
Pratheepa Sundaram - Review: 8/10
I liked the activity performed during the training like PI planning etc
Steinar Vatne - Review: 8/10
Good coaching and good knowledge. May be a bit more theoretical.
Eirik Russell Roberts - Review: 7/10
I liked that there was a lot of two-way communication and discussion, as well as practical exercises, but we ended up bing a bit short on time to actually go through all the theory.
Marleen van Dijk - Review: 7/10
It was a lot that is already known but refreshing is always good
René Ansems - Review: 8/10
Knowledge of the trainers. Clear explanation. Interaction with people. Positive way of communication. Maybe some more energizers on first day, as there was a lot of information to be received.
Jeremy Cope - Review: 10/10
The team building was well done. The course leader was very professional with real world experience to call on. The basic terms could have been a little more definitively given. Some of the more marketing ra-ra videos didn't add anything.
Andrew Butterworth - Review: 8/10
Trainer coped well with chaotic conditions of the training environment - I liked that the course itself was structured in an agile way trying to get across those ideas of self-organization and getting people to think rather than just passively receive information. At first, there was a lot of confusion, but by the end, there was good engagement from everyone.
Norbert Stam - Review: 8/10
from a generic Safe perspective the training was ok, good overview, would have been more valuable if the training had been taking into account the currrent AFKL implementation
Pranesh Chandramohan - Review: 7/10
Content would have been better, if handled with case studies
Pavan Pratap Dara - Review: 7/10
As a whole the event went very well. There were some improvements with respect to managing to complete whole course contents. On day2, It went in hurry to cover the last topics Also there are few contents which are more theoretical and I felt like trainers couldn't draw peoples attention.
