One of those rare instructors who actually practice what they preach. All the scrum values being taught could also be experienced in the way Hiren conducted himself ranging from respect towards the participants, commitment and focus towards scrum as well as courage and openness in answering questions.

Shrihari Nair, J P Morgan Chase

Hiren has a very practical way of teaching, and he makes the students think out of the box and cultivates a habit of finding the answers on their own, so that they truly understand Scrum. This helped me not only to crack the certification but also to understand the gaps that we have in our Scrum team. Though I know the change within my teams will take time, but if everyone is coached the same way, as Hiren did, then it will make the change more acceptable.

Rakhee Manjrekar, J P Morgan Chase

Hiren was engaged to assist the RSA/Aveksa team in it’s adoption of Agile. He provided expert training and coaching, energizing the teams as they ventured into new territory. His enthusiasm, coupled with out-of-the-box thinking, helped launch these teams and made them realize immediate successes. I highly recommend Hiren as an Agile coach and trainer.

Robert Frohman, Client Principal at Emergn

It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Hiren. I had the pleasure of working with Hiren for over six months, in the Agile transformation journey of germin8. I was particularly impressed by Hiren’s ability to handle even the toughest situations- and effortlessly. He has flair to deal with people and situations. He brought the collaboration among different cross-functional teams. As an Agile Coach and Trainer, Hiren earns my highest recommendation.

Saurabh Mahadik, Sr. Product Manager at Germin8 Solutions

Hiren has a thorough understanding of Agile principles and practices and has proved a passionate trainer and coach. He is dedicated and professional, leading to strong long lasting engagements with customers who see the benefits he brings to their team and leadership.

Colin Bird, Director at Ripplerock

Thank you for the most interesting five days in our work life. It was such an informative and creative training session. Apart from the usual training sessions, you made us learn and get in to scrum without we even realizing it. You helped us put on our thinking hats and come up with a lot of ideas. As well as made us realize our pain points and our areas of improvement individually and as a team. Am sure it made all of us here realize the true value of working as a team.
