What People Are Saying

I’ve known Dr. Cornelius at little over a year and have received coaching from him on professional and Agile practices.  Dr. Cornelius is a great mentor and teacher; he listens actively and embodies a coaching mindset.  Dr. Cornelius is also good at helping facilitate growth for individuals as well as a group.  I along with one of my peers Chris Shipman were nominated to be Product Owners for a new workstream.  He was able to help guide and mentor us to effectively lead the team and really helped both Chris and I grow in this new role.  He is an expert in his field, and I felt he did a great job of building trust and confidence with both Chris and I, as well as the team. -- Heyder, VP Global Infrastructure Services, ITS

Dr. Dave has played an instrumental role in preparing our teams for PI planning by helping us prepare epics and features for PI planning.  He conducted value stream mapping activities with our business team that resulted in the definition of the product Manager roles based on the organization design.  Dr. Dave’s training style is very interactive and open.  He led Scrum, SAFE for teams, and product Owner session both face-to-face and in a virtual setting.   As COVID changed the landscape, he was quickly able to adapt breakout sessions and team collaborations activities to accommodate a virtual environment.  His servant leadership approach has helped to change how our team delivers value to our customers and internal stakeholders.  -- Terrance, Director Services Solutions & Program Management


Storytelling is one of the most powerful forms of communications.  Dr. Dave's style is interactive and believes learning requires participation.
