SPM for Startups Training & Certification

Praise for our training

“Being in a startup environment working under conditions of extreme uncertainty is challenging for us as founders. The SPM for Startups course provided a great insight into how to structure our work and provided both validation of current ways of working and clarified how to refine others. Hans-Bernd Kittlaus provided us with thoughtful exercises and discussions related to our reality. I would recommend this to all software startups, and my advice is to do it early in your journey, that will save you a lot of time.”
