Don’t just take our word for it, read what some of the people that we work with have to say.
The following testimonials have been gathered from delegates on training courses, attendees to agile events that we present at, recipients of our coaching and senior executives who enlist our expertise in providing them with agile services.
McKenna Consultants have successfully supported and delivered the Agile training programme that has been going on at EMIS since February 2014. They have provided training and hands on coaching to over 250 members of our development team including developers, testers, product owners, project managers, senior managers, UX and commercial. They have helped our development teams to implement ideas from SCRUM, agile and lean to make us a more efficient department resulting in happier teams. McKenna Consultants’ outstanding knowledge and experience in creating and improving agile teams meant that they were the perfect agile partner for us. We will continue to work with McKenna Consultants to enable us to continually improve.

– S. Spence-Ross, Charity Organisation Team Leader
Thanks to everyone who came along to this session. I thought it was very informative and great fun. Thanks to Aaron for facilitating!
– Chris Walsh, EMC
I hadn’t expected a session on SAFe to be quite so entertaining. Thanks to Nick and Aaron for a really interesting evening
– Heather Dindam, Freelance CSM, Swindon
Excellent session tonight – thanks Nick and Aaron. I feel safer about SAFe!
– Sean Moir
The Leading SAFe course was not only extremely useful (in terms of content) but also delivered to a very high standard by Nick McKenna. Nick’s Software Engineering, and Agile implementation, credentials are equally as impressive as his training style. Highly recommended.
Paul Yeomans – Managing Director, Manifestly Important
Like many software development functions we are made up of people who’ve enjoyed varying exposure to Agile, and whilst we had already begun to work in a ‘relatively’ Agile manner there were numerous holes in our processes. What struck me most when engaging with McKenna Consultants was the speed that they were able to adapt the training and coaching elements to our unique blend of this existing knowledge, our business context and our aspirations as a team. I’m sure this stems from the fact that they are an Agile development function in their own right. This was certainly a breath of fresh air compared to much of the learning we commission and I would, therefore, be more than happy to endorse the agile training and coaching provided by McKenna Consultants.
– Simon Donnelly, ICT Digital Manager, City of York Council
When it comes to Agile training and coaching for our development team, McKenna Consultants are the first port of call. They take an active interest and involvement within the team and have helped to bring out the best in our developers. Their coaches are knowledgeable, insightful and have real world experience of working the ways which they recommend. We are certainly a more efficient, well oiled small development team thanks to McKenna Consultants.
– Simon Hurley, Client Services Director, Howells Associates
Nick is a well informed and interesting speaker and we gained as much, if not more, from his additional stories and talking to him than the course content itself.
Tim Fellows – Director of Development, HBM-nCode
This was a very interesting and very well put together event
Really good session from Nick on SAFe planning. Many thanks
Great session delivered by Nick

Great event tonight. Really enjoyed it and found the practical aspects of it informative. Nick is a great tutor too!
Most useful Agile workshop
Nick did a great job of getting across 2 days of SAFe in 2 hours
Great evening, and thanks to Nick for the talk and simulation.
Extremely insightful and rare look into SAFe planning
An excellent day – I’ve been doing agile for a while, reading about it for longer, and I learned a lot!
