Client Testimonials:

“I appreciate the Monticello approach to Agile, and that they tailor their training to the client’s needs. They use their ‘in the trenches’ experience to bring a more practical approach to Agile training, and understand their audience to bring a flexible and functional approach to what Agile is all about.” - Dircector, Global Investment Bank

“I personally had no former experience or training with Agile, so for me this was a great introduction. At the same time, It seemed that those more versed were able to listen and contribute to the conversation, which helped them to better hone their understanding of Agile. The philosophical differences from conventional project management styles were concisely compared, and I believe the value proposition measurements drove home the advantages of Agile that were being presented.” - Vice President, Global Bank
