"De opleiding geeft een totaal beeld van wat projectmanagement inhoud en hoe je het kunt toepassen.

De logische opbouw, met praktische voorbeelden geven continue het gevoel dat het leeft. Daar heeft de ruime ervaring in projectmanagement en de schakelsnelheid van de docent zeker grote invloed op.

De drie dagen van de cursus zijn een lust voor diegene die een eerste stap in de wereld van projectmanagement willen zetten en prikkelen de zintuigen naar meer, terwijl en misschien wel juist omdat, het geleerde direct toepasbaar is in real live." - 2013-07-10 14:27

"In drie dagen worden niet alle in's en out's van projectmanagement behandeld, maar behandelt de cursus op een erg prettige manier de breedte hiervan.
Heel erg nuttig voor iedereen die aan een project werkt. Ook voor de ervaren projectmanager kan deze cursus een waardevolle opfrissing zijn, mits je voor jezelf een duidelijke, realistische leerdoelstelling kiest. Beter één les die impact heeft dan honderd theorieën die de praktijk niet veranderen.

Door het delen van ervaringen en het spelen van cases worden er door iedereen waardevolle lessen uit de cursus gehaald. Je leert hiermee direct een stukje theorie in praktische situaties toe te passen, waardoor de stof beter blijft hangen en persoonlijke waarde krijgt.
Voornamelijk de lesstof en oefeningen m.b.t. karakter en rolverdeling binnen teams hebben mij erg nuttige handvatten aangeboden." - 2011-10-07 12:14
