What People Are Saying

Abhijit Gadre
Associate Director Pune, Maharashtra, India
"Vijay's knowledge of Agile and KANBAN is profound. He has mastered the art of training. His calm and composed yet cheerful nature has a very positive effect on developers. We had a great association with Vijay where Vijay trained our developers inculcate knowledge of agile in the way they understood. They are now being agile rather than doing agile. They now themselves wear an agile thinking hat rather than being coached continuously. Thanks Vijay.
Rajeev Das
Senior Software Engineer at Siemens Mobility
"It's a good feeling to be trained in Agile by Vijay. He has sound knowledge in Agile and the development processes which makes him a humble and practical trainer during the session.He keeps the entire class busy doing practical workshop that in turn teaches people the benefits of Agile over conventional process like V/Waterfall model. I wish you all the best and recommend Vijay to all who want to adopt Agile in their organisation."
Shreyank Shah

"Vijay is very knowledgeable in various agile methodologies.The experiences he shared with his various clients were quite helpful to understand Agile transformation process as a whole. He was also instrumental in forming Pune Agile Practitioners Group."
Ravi Bhim
CEO at Beautiful Code San Francisco, California
"At the core, Agile boils down to a few core concepts - Estimating the tasks, Operational Discipline, Team Dynamics, Iterative Mindset, etc.... Vijay has helped us understand how these concepts have a direct effect on the eventual success of the team through practical approaches such as games and discussions. These learnings are going to stick with me because of the way they were delivered - and thats why Vijay is the real deal. Sign him up with both your eyes closed.
Ajitesh Prakash
Delivery Manager at Nagarro Pune, Maharashtra, India
"Got a chance to be a part of SAFe 5.0 training conducted by Vijay. I appreciate the knowledge that he has around Agile, Lean, SAFe, Kanban and DevOps. He has been around, seen the changing times in the Agile world and his understanding of the subject speaks volumes about his experience. Very patient with all the queries, he would always listen to the other point of view before nudging you in the right direction. His passion to educate people on these topics is illustrated by how he kept the training engaging for a period of 2 days and kept everyone on thier toes. I would definitely recommend Vijay for any Agile education.
Daisy Uppal
Scrum Master at Manulife
"Vijay was responsible for transforming Sophos India(formerly known as Cyberoam) from waterfall to Agile/Scrum Process. This was not an easy process. Vijay was very persistent, passionate, and patient. Furthermore, he was able to adapt his teaching and coaching methods to an individual's scrum knowledge/skill level.He nudged us when we needed nudging, and pushed us when we needed pushing.Throughout the transformation process, Vijay would share additional Agile techniques to further our knowledge.With his passion and persistence, he was able to successfully lead the road of transforming the firm from waterfall to Agile/Scrum Process."
Vijay worked with me as a Agile Coach. As we were already following Scrum development in our project, he initially worked with us and observed the way in which we work. After that he provided some valuable feedback which helped me to conduct scrum effectively.I especially liked his way to gel within the team and identify any issues which are hampering team's performance.He is also master in conducting Sprint Retrospectives. It helps team to identify any impediments and see if there is any way to improve the performance.Wishing him all the best for his future endeavors !!

Yogesh Kamath
GSDM cum Relationship Manager with SAP OTC, PMP and CSM
"I had the privilege of attending a training on Certified Scrum Master, conducted by Vijay. Vijay is a great trainer and made the sessions informative and fun at learning. One observation, which is worth mentioing was that he had created the entire training story board based on SCRUM framework. Right from the word Go - Defining the Scrum roles, Sprint plan and various ceremonies/events, Artifacts and Q&A were articulated very well. He adapted the conversation to a specific audience, as per the situation at hand, shared his knowledge (Agile-Scrum,Kanban) along with the real-life examples. This helped me to get the concepts quickly. Wish him all best for future."
Vijay is a lively trainer i have seen yet ..Usually Training are sleepy but vijay channeled our childhood days experience to Agile methodology. He illustrates some other daily days examples implementing agile . He has a great sense of humor. I would call this "Learn with fun " training session . Which is very easy to understand give life to the boring text . Wishing you All The Best!
