Overall I really enjoyed the course. I was afraid it was going to be too theoretical, but it turned out to be practical and useful. Mike was great, he was engaging and you could tell he did his homework before in order to understand our organization and tailor the course accordingly.
the training was really really good. it exceeded my expectations and a main reason for that was the trainer himself. He clearly has a very in depth knowledge about project management and is also able to pass on his knowledge and expertise to others in a very efficient manner.
I found the course and the exercises very relevant to the type of work I carry out as a Programme Manager and had my expectations met. I found extra support from Micheal when I was experiencing difficulties in working in my pair and found reassurance understanding and guidance in how to make the most of the training. Enough time was allocated for questions and clarifying doubts and discussion. Illustrating cases of failed project management was very useful at the end of the course to give perspective on the scale of wasted time and resources.
Mike has a lot of experience and provides real-life examples to drive home the importance of project management. Being someone who is familiar with project management approaches and tools, the training at times felt basic for my needs. However I appreciate that this is an Introduction to Project Management so it meets the expectations of those new to the area. Mike is also very helpful and offered to follow up and support trainees post training.
