My goal was to take away 1 or 2 things to implement in my job. The class exceeded my expectations. Exeptional training – high energy and collaboration. I wish the rest of my team had been able to attend. -Qualcomm, IT Project Manager

The project game in the morning was a fantastic way to frame the largest issues with PM. I would 100% recommend this workshop to others. I’m going to ask my team members to take this course. – Tintri, Project Manager
