Praise for Crafting Better Requirements - Agile Track

Being involved in a high profile agile project at work lead to challenges I had yet to experience in my experience with traditional waterfall methodologies and led me to the course.

I would highly recommend this track to anyone involved in an agile project! -- Michael O.
