Ralph is an awesome Scrum trainer. He combines extensive real life experience with thorough knowledge obtained through different practices, books and other written sources. If it’s written, Ralph knows it  🙂 For this reason Ralph always seems to know why something is done in a certain way. His way of training is very interactive and stimulating. In the end of the day I left with a lot of energy.

Ralph and I have worked together on Scrum over the last several years. I can highly recommend him to anyone who wants to apply Scrum to gain agility. He is knowledgeable both in management practices, as well in the best ways for developers to work within a Scrum environment.

Must see!
Ralph ist ein toller Trainer! Das Thema Scrum hat er mithilfe seiner Unterlagen und Illustrationen sowie Übungen sehr gut erläutert und nähergebracht.
Sein sehr umfangreiches Know-How aus diversen Projekten lässt er gekonnt in den Unterricht einfliessen und zeigt verschiedene Wege auf wie man Scrum erfolgreich ein- und umsetzt.
Praxisnähe ist garantiert.
Danke für den super Kurs Ralph!

Ralph was an excellent trainer in the Scrum Product Owner training our team recently attended. The structure of the training was very well thought through – a great balance of theory, real world examples and practical activities to complete during the session. It made a big difference listening to someone with so much industry experience in applying agile – it gave our team great insights into what we need to consider and implement as part of our team. I highly recommend Ralph and the suite of agile sessions to any individual or organisation!

Ich fand super, wie der Kursleiter seine Erfahrungen eingebracht hat. Auch der Austausch mit den anderen Kursteilnehmern war sehr wertvoll.

Ich fand es super, wie der Trainer das Wissen in visualisierter Form vermittelte.

Ralph has proven to me, in a period in which I’m more disappointed than ever about what professionalism means, that there are people that know what they are talking about.

Thanks for the two day training period, it was very useful for me, I had been reading a lot about it, but the practical knowledge and insights during the training really helped me. It’s the bridge between theory and practice, which made the training very useful for me personally.

Die Mischung aus Übung und Theorie hat gepasst.

I personally enjoyed the training you gave. You are able to tell about the framework with such enthusiasm that it is very interesting to follow the course, and that the information sticks with you. I could see you yourself are very skilled in SCRUM and really believe in its working, and because of this you made me enthusiastic as well.

Ralph, thanks for an excellent course, based on experience, drive, teaching skills and, last but not at least, thorough subject matter knowledge.

Besten Dank für Deinen Scrum Kurs. War eine Super-Sache, sehr interessante Materie, gut vermittelt und ich konnte gut folgen. War kaum je bei einer Schulung so bei der Sache.

Ralph Jocham hat in den zwei Kurstagen anhand vieler realitätsnaher Übungen und plakativen Beispielen aus seiner Praxis gezeigt, dass Scrum bei der Entwicklung resp. Weiterentwicklung eines Produkts entscheidende Vorteile gegenüber einem Phasenmodell bietet. Und dies sowohl für die Kunden, den Product Manager, das Entwicklungsteam als auch für den Betrieb. Ralph Jocham ist bei der Vermittlung des Stoffs gut auf die Fragen der Kursteilnehmer eingegangen, so dass am Ende des Kurses für mich nicht nur die Theorie, sondern auch die mögliche Umsetzung und Anwendung entscheidend an Klarheit gewonnen hat.

I just wanted to say thank you for your lectures on Scrum and to tell you that i have taken the PSM I exam and scored 91%! 🙂
Thank you very much and thank you for preparing me for it.
Your lectures were straightforward, illuminating and well devised.
Thank you again

Its been a while since a training gave me energy instead of draining it, so thanks Ralph!

Das Professional Scrum Master Intensivtraining ist sehr interessant und lehrreich. Durch eine kurze Einführung in die Fachbegriffe sowie in die Grundideen und Grundgedanken von Scrum, werden Erfahrungen aus der Arbeitswelt herangezogen um einen guten Praxisbezug in das Arbeiten mit Scrum zu bekommen. Es werden mehrere kurze Übungen im Team von wenigen Minuten in das Training eingebaut, um das Gelernte direkt umsetzten und verstehen zu können. Dadurch wird der Kurs interaktiv und lebendig. Es ist ein Kurs in dem alle zum Mitmachen angeregt werden und beinahe spielerisch die Arbeitsweise mit Scrum lernen. Alles in allem war das Professional Scrum Master Intensivtraining ein hervorragend gelungenes Praxisseminar. Vielen Dank Ralph Jocham, für das tolle, interessante und lehrreiche Intensivtraining! Gerne wieder.

Probably the best course I have been on in my 15 years at JPMorgan.

PSM – Bern

Nochmals vielen Dank für deinen Kurs. Deine Referenzen und Hinweise aus der Praxis unterstreichen hervorragend die Praxis-Relevanz, die mir zwar mittlerweile mehr als klar ist, aber trotzdem die ganze Veranstaltung sehr viel glaubwürdiger erscheinen lässt, als ich es bei anderen Veranstaltungen zu Scrum bisher erlebt habe.

Scrum Coaching – Bern, January 2011-July 2012

I have worked closely with Ralph from early 2011 until mid 2012. He was our Agile Coach in a greenfield software development project. During a first phase Ralph took a Scrum Master role to ramp up the newly founded team. Later he supported the team scaling process, successfully doubling team size. Additionally he guided the client organization in the transition from phase-oriented, milestone-based thinking towards the delivery of value-optimized, working product increments. Ralph continuously demonstrated great empathy towards the team. His widely varied agile retrospectives were a highlight of our two-week sprints! He also facilitated hugely successful product visioning and team building workshops. Ralph’s extensive knowledge of agile methodologies and experience in continuous deployment strategies were immensely helpful in driving organizational change. He knows how to combine modesty and perseverance, ultimately convincing management as well as broadening team impact. It was a pleasure working with Ralph and I look forward to our next professional encounter.

PSD (Java) Train the Trainer – Sao Paulo

From Ralph’s very first email contact with me through to the end of the class, Ralph showed a *lot* of passion for scrum and agile practices – and I think as an instructor people need to have that. Stories of Ralph’s experiences were excellent and appropriate too. Ralph also recognized the level of experience across all of the students and facilitated discussions well, so that everyone could relate their own experiences. Those discussions, experiences, similarities, and differences were some of the most important things I took from the class.

PSM – Gouda

Ralph proved to be a great person with in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge of Scrum. He diligently answered all the questions from the students. Moreover, he elaborated the answers with practical examples. After day 1 of the course, we talked for about an hour about scaling scrum outside IT. Thanks for a solid, high-quality training.

Scrum Coaching – Bern, April-September 2010

Ralph Jocham introduced Scrum into our team. The project he coached was developing software to manage the nursing processes in a clinical management system. Ralph trained me in my role of the Product owner and a colleague as the future Scrum Master. His roll-out of Scrum and his initial role of being the Scrum Master was paramount for the success of the project and still is. Furthermore, he not only trained the development team in Scrum but also in the technical practices of XP and emergent Design.
He also helped management to introduce agile practices into their process of portfolio management.
This project was successfully completed and is now improving the way patient care is being performed in various swiss hospitals.
