Ahmed has rich experience working with a range of organizations with deep experience in being agile, not just doing agile. He challenged a lot of my pre-conceived notions, entertained me, and gave me a range of practical tools and techniques that we're already working on applying back in the workplace.

Ahmed was fantastic, with a pragmatic view of Agility—quickly cutting to the chase on how your organization might best achieve true end-to-end agility. A refreshing departure from the more theoretical practice-focused courses.
