I have had the privilege to follow a scrum training by Avienaash during my visit to India in January of this year. Avienaash has a great knowledge of scrum / agile development and an appealing way of getting the message accross. The two day training was exciting from the first to the last minute. Easy to understand theory combined with good exercises and examples from “the real world” made this training a success for me and the rest of the team. We started implementing scrum with our team right away
“It was absolute pleasure to learn Agile Scrum from Avienaash. His deep Agile knowledge, exercises and energetic lectures helped me and my team to understand the ideology and concept behind being Agile. He is a fantastic coach and he makes the things simple with practical examples. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic when it comes to Agile development and knows how to put the ideas across.
Avienaash’s focus and deep understanding of Agile and Lean Philosophy, would be a boon to any company that’s wants to improve their software development practices and also their entire organization.”

Avienaash lives and breathes Agile. So, we found him to be the best fit for facilitating on Lean, Agile and Scrum ways of working. He connects so easily with the participants that everyone is comfortable with him within few minutes. The course is very well organized and the workshop is full of interaction automatically (even post lunch sessions). He can consult your teams, management, customers and partners to make them understand the benefits they will get from Agile and Scrum way of working. If you are planning for Agile-Scrum practices introduction in your organization, I will recommend you to meet Avienaash once and then decide.
Excellent at communication, up to date with technology and skills full personality with practical approach. He brings passion, energy and a “can-do” attitude, with a motivation for developing innovative technology-driven solutions. I wish him best of luck and looking forward for a health business relations ever.
I had attended an agile training workshop organised by my company where Avienaash took the role of faculty. As I had attended some corporate workshops earlier as well so I had certain expectations with this training. Avienaash, in terms of subject expert, orator, coach, mentor and as a senior having 16+ years of industry experience, was beyond my expectations and excellent indeed. He made the session very interactive and ensured participation from all the members of the group. He has vast knowledge and ability to relate theoretical knowledge with practical examples. I enjoyed being part of his training program, would definitely attend more training programs conducted by him and also I recommend him strongly as a coach and mentor for Agile training.
“Avienaash is a people person, in more ways than one. Having worked with him closely in numerous workshops across the country, I can vouch for his people skills. He has this tremendous ability to instantly connect, both on a one-to-one basis, and collectively with a group. He doesn’t just talk, but listens more and conveys the message across very lucidly, be it a 1 hour presentation, or a week long hands-on workshop.
Avie is a true servant leader, extremely humble, and inspires every team to decide & then collectively realize their vision of where they want to be!”
I attended Avienaash’s Agile training in December 2012 organized by my company. I was very impressed with the way that he conducted the training session. I thought that he covered the material needed for mastery of the subject. However while covering needed material, he also was able to be responsive to specific concern areas from me and my colleagues. In all areas, he was knowledgeable and was able to supplement with his personal experience. Lastly he conducted the class in a pleasant way including humor and encouraging a healthy amount of training participation. The training session was very engaging and worthwhile, Overall great job!
Definitely an asset for any project oriented organizations and a must for project team coaching into Agile methodology. I would highly recommend Avienaash to any organization who wants a strong IT management with an expertise in AGILE product development
“I had the privilege of attending an Agile/Scrum Training session for two days with Avienaash. In that workshop, he demonstrated his deep understanding and experience with the subject matter, as well as a crystal clear focus on how to help the attendees understand and practically apply the lessons to their specific contexts. The event was extremely well organized, and delivery was done with an excellent mix of discussions, case studies, and activities. If you are looking for a consultant or trainer in this area–for participants of any level–Avienaash would be an ideal choice.

“I got to know Avienaash when i attended his two days workshop on Scrum. His workshops were simple, engaging, thought provoking and aims to give you totally new perception of what you already know about scrum. His extensive experience with implementing scrum to different types of teams reflects through in his training. I would recommend Avienaash workshop’s not just because he is a perfect trainer but also owing to the passion he shows in the subject.”
“A true professional. Mannered, responsive and open to discussions chap. Brings in leaps of experience in the Agile domain and is ever so ready to discuss/share his experiences on Agile.
Excellent speaker, intelligent attendant, thinks twice before quoting anything. Able Agile coach, puts in real effort to cleanse Agile mishaps,
Experienced campaigner who knows when to coach an individual and when to coach a group.”
“Srijan has been on an Agile journey for several years. But it has been only in the last 6 months that we’ve taken big leaps forward in our Agile adoption, including signing several clients for Agile development contracts. The turnaround for us was Avienaash’s day long workshop across our company. His clarity and command on the subject was tremendous, and was easily able to straddle across all functions of an organization which get affected by Agile adoption, such as Agile Contracts, Performance Management, etc. For nearly 9-10 hours he kept our entire bunch deeply engaged, ending the day with a quick-fire Q&A summing up all the days learning.
We’ve had 4 Scrum Masters get trained under various global Agile coaches since then – but they still believe Avienaash’s workshop was more enlightening that the SCRUM Certification programs.
I would highly recommend Avienaash to any company that is considering moving to Agile/SCRUM.”

“Avienaash has conducted scrum training for our organization, when I get a chance to work with him. He has been a great practitioner of agile methodology and internalized the very concept so well, that I do not hesitate calling an ambassador of agile methodology. He also connects, engages with the audience and explains the concepts and principle of the approach, Learning becomes interesting and enriching with him. Great Guy !!!”
“It was a delightful experience to attend Avienaash workshop on agile practice. He showed huge amount of patience dealing with audience questions. Especially, when i asked questions varied from Selling to Implementation, Avienaash very patiently answered each one of them in detail.
Would love to attend more future workshops especially in Agile Selling and Contracting.”
