Lee’s students have great things to say about his classes:

-        "I have a lot of respect for him as he is 'doing' SAFe and not just teaching it...from my point of view, I am in the trenches as a Scrum Master and it's not always an easy job - Lee peppered his SAFe course with real-world examples and it was super."

-        "Lee knows his topic inside and out. Not only does he approach this course as a disciplined academic but as a real-world practitioner borrowing from an enormous catalog of past experience."
