Attendees feedback

Shaveta Mehta, Director, News Technology Services

I would highly recommend Sarika for the Agile, Safe and Management trainings, she is one of the best ever trainers I have come across in my career. Her meticulous planning and practical yet fun filled methodology to train participants make the intense workshops look easy. Her industry expertise shows through real world scenarios she takes throughout the two day practical exercise. I will be able to apply the lessons learnt at my work in long run very easily. I feel that a training is successful when all the attendees discuss it during breaks/lunch and they all get involved, all the time. With a diverse group, in her training sessions, it is expected that lot of the discussion by the participants may be about the various tailored versions of AGILE that they follow in their organization. It is to Sarika’s credit that she ensures that the team is focused on the core concepts. Things delivered through training were so easy to grasp and apply on our day to day projects. They not only impart in depth knowledge about everything but also support you after the training. Her way of delivering things and sharing knowledge is entirely different. The growth is experienced in her workshops - Highly Recommended!

The two day workshop was fun filled and lots of learning. Sarika was sharing her real life experience in implementing Lean Change Management. Also it was good to see that she was respecting client agreement thereby not revealing the client name rather sharing the situation and how she experimented with LCM. Keeping the participants engaged. Connecting the dots i.e. the flow and giving apt examples. The best part was Sarika agreeing to experiment along with me by being my coach on Lean Change.

Senthil Nathan

I liked her experience in the industry.
