Heidi Helfand

Author & Director of Product & Technology Excellence, USA.

“We were really not ready to take more work from the client, but they wanted to bring us more work. This was the very reason that allowed me to bring in Agile. Two years later, we had doubled the contract. Not only did it renew, it doubled!”

What People Say About Training with Actineo

“Actineo is a very good training company. I live in Italy, but I always try to attend Actineo’s classes in London because of the quality of the training, the friendliness of the organisation and their expertise.

They transfer their knowledge from the trenches because sometimes the material is not enough. When I have a work-related question, they answer it which is very important for me. Not based on theory, not read in a book, but based on experience.

Compared to other classes I have attended in London, the level of participants in Actineo’s classes is very high. I always meet interesting people. I am not a native speaker and I have never had any communication problems in the class. The environment is inclusive from the first minute – you are part of the class and this is very important.”

Massimo Sarti

Agile Consultant and Organiser of Agile Talks Meetup Group, Rome

“These courses accelerate your learning and they’re really interactive and you’re able to take what you learn straight into the next working day. I’ve done courses that have really helped me to grow with really quite inspirational facilitators. There’s never been a course that I’ve done with Actineo that’s not given me something back and led to something more.”

Nel Mathams

Creative Coach, London

“My favourite thing about Actineo is that the personal touch. I like to feel valued as a customer. I’m always picky with who I train with and because of that personal touch, you know you will get quality training. You are trained by people who are still active in the workplace with stories and real-world experience. They’re good quality training courses.”

Glaudia Califano

Agile Coach, London

“Actineo’s course catalogue is quite varied and different from other training organisations. They do a lot of different things which I always enjoy because I like new things. I like the fact that they’re all extremely interactive.”

Vlad Mihailescu

Scrum Master and Visual Facilitator, London

“It’s all that real world experience of doing the thing which makes the real difference between me thinking, “OK – you’re someone standing in front of a slide deck, reading off the slides” to “This is somebody who has real world, in the trenches experience and knows what it feels like to try to do this thing and that thing and make this work.” It adds a whole different level of respect for the person stood at the front of the room and gives them a serious boost in credibility because I know that they’ve been there and done that and that’s why I come back to Actineo to get training rather than go somewhere else. It always feels like there’s more on offer than just the theory.”

What People Say About Actineo’s Advanced Agile Metrics Workshop

“Agile Metrics was phenomenal because we had a play afterwards and we tried some exercises and all that stuff brought it to life much more. The course was just a massive “Wow!” moment for me. Doing it in the class and playing around with the tool and seeing how it worked – changing data and all that kind of stuff made me confident enough to go to my team when I went back on the Monday to the office and say “Right, from now on, how about we have a crack at this and see if this works and see if it is useful?”

What People Say About Actineo’s Consulting Services

“When Actineo were there, the team would make a leap in knowledge and understanding. I could make that leap with them and the organisation was then more accepting of change. We got to a place where we had a more balanced system.

It’s good to have the help of a mentor to get you on the right track. It’s great to get confirmation that you are on the right track, but also that the person tunes into your context and helps you find where to go next.

A key moment for me was when new people joined. I didn’t have to help them understand what we were doing and why. Other members of the team would be able to do that without my help and that showed me it was working.

Actineo really helped with fine-tuned training and customised workshops. I’d recommend them, especially when you want to make a big step change”

Edith Coenen

Agile Coach, London

We’ve learned how to solve our own problems. Actineo had the answers, but rather than give us answers, they helped us find those answers.

Pete

Applications Architect, Ding.com, Dublin

Actineo opened our mind to do the change, helped us in many ways and made Ding a better place to work.
