Alex is the most structured, engaging, and competent trainer I met so far. He clarifies all your questions. After 3 classes with him I can say that he is the best trainer I came across. What I especially appreciate is his support and guidance beyond the training sessions. I value him highly and look forward to doing more agile business with him.

If you consider learning more about Professional Scrum, I absolutely recommend working with him!

The PAL-E course from Alex provided valuable insights into agile leadership. In our case, it helped us tremendously improve and speed up decision-making processes in our team. We saved quite some time by following the concepts and rules provided and discussed in this course. With that, we got a clearer and better perspective of what topics are ahead of us and how we can tackle them iteratively.
That leads us to provide more value to our customers faster.

Department Head Enterprise Systems

100% entertaining and important for my future career.
The PAL course was full of great knowledge and methods that are absolutely essential to becoming a leader in agile product development. Alexander has a wealth of experience and gives 100% practical advice on how to  apply the techniques from the course in your daily business.

After the two days, I was enthusiastic to apply what I had learned.

Andreas Altmannsberger

Senior Product Manager

I have often engaged Alex for private training and have always been enthusiastic about his way of imparting knowledge. In Alex, we have found the ideal trainer for us. You can discuss individual courses with him, define the focus, and design optimal training for your employees. What impressed me the most was how Alex facilitated a learning environment where the participants worked on the topics in a self-organized way. That helps immensely in acquiring new knowledge.
