"I recently had the pleasure of participating in the Demand Driven Institute Demand Driven Planner training conducted by John Melbye. The on-site training program was well-paced with comprehensive and relevant course content. John did an exceptional job making complex concepts easy to the understand through relatable real-life examples. His passion and enthusiasm kept the trainees engaged and his training approach encouraged interactive participation.
