"I liked way information was conducted, I liked we could spend a lot of time on discussions. I liked the open atmosphere that was created during the training. I learnt really a lot!
I also liked stress put on human aspects of projects realization, even with some extra info about how hormones influences performance!

Improved - trainer background was software - probably there could be more real life examples of using Agile for hardware and only for super huge SpaceX-like projects. " - 2022-02-02 00:00

"The content of the meeting was good and gave a good overview of AGILE application. I found that most of the content quite theoretical and limited depth into application on Hardware specific topics, more in team setup and phase planning. However, as a beginner it was a good introductory course and gave some practical tools to start using AGILE methodology. " - 2022-02-01 00:00

"It was an interesting training which leaded to food for thoughts in our department.
I liked that first some Agile basics got addressed and that later some examples and context was given to apply it for hardware.

For me the structure and planning of the training could have been done a bit better. More clearly mapping out, what we will do on day 1 and 2. Also preparation from the trainer was limited in my experience. Time was lost with preparing Mural and sharing links. Also the info that we shared upfront about the participants, their role and expectations seemed to be not used. I got the impression that the trainer entered relatively blank. " - 2022-01-27 00:00

"Content of material was good, good examples. Time balance for breakout sessions also was better in the last 2 sessions (vs 1st one), so it was possible to discuss. Also the "concentration" of learning material was very good in the last 2-3 sessions (vs 1st one). Reference to different short videos was good: well fitting the scope and with something to learn from (especially the "resource utilization trap"). Was good that we received the PDF of the training in the very beginning (I used it throughout the training to go back-forth multiple times). Doing this training online in the approach how it was organized worked really well (can be a good learning for Melexis in the future). Only risk in some cases that people easier get distracted/do something else in parallel. At the same time possibility to check/respond to some more urgent mails and chats is helpful to reduce stress of catching up after the training. What can be improved: 1. keep the same people in the breakout rooms for exercises that are building up on prev breakout session: we had several stable people, but in some sessions people from other breakout rooms joined - this was not very efficient. 2. (minor) Seems not for everyone breakout rooms and going back-forth to main session worked smooth: I had a lot of issues in 1st session, heard some others got stuck in other sessions as well). 3. While we worked on the exercise around value stream due lack of time our value streams are not complete and in quite some aspects are not correct. It would be good to have a clean correct value stream example being worked out and presented after analysis of ours (and as reference for the future) - this can still be provided by the trainer even now: a complete good reference." - 2020-05-19 00:00

"Practical exercises for key points were very good. Learning objectives could be a little clearer defined perhaps and key features such as points instead of time units justified to help understanding/onboarding. Where Agile works, where it doesnt work so well. A clear method to develop costing and time needed when a project with unique features is being bid or started." - 2019-11-14 00:00

"Overall excellent course. Very densely packed however, so by the end of the second day, could kind of tell that people were starting to struggle a bit. Maybe did need to be that densely packed just to get all the info in.

Feedback that we already talked a bit about during the course was surrounding the exercises - it did put quite a bit of pressure on one person that the value mapping was based around. Could a pre-defined example be used - so all people can concentrate on learning the agile concepts rather than having to think up the detail to put on the post-its? Pros and cons are clearly there as we discussed. But worth recording somewhere.

Some examples were used to try to help describe concepts (experience from NXP or ASML or whoever) which at certain times were good - but sometimes didnt quite hit the mark and maybe went into too specific details or too specific people even which made it almost harder to understand what was trying to be explained without the full picture that you guys have.

Discussions which arose were all pretty good." - 2019-07-05 00:00
