I have been in project management for years but this course gave me new insight into how best to organise the support functions and how to bring the projects and programmes together.” Matthew “I am an independent contractor and this course has given me the material for my own handbook in how to set up PMOs –when I start a new contract I know I can add value from day one because there are so many check lists for the different jobs that need doing.” Tina “The emphasis on run the business and change the business is fantastic –simple but it’s clarified how to balance what we do in one simple phrase. This is going to change what questions we ask about projects before authorising them.” Jumoke “Its not always for operational managers to understand what I do so having a qualification makes it easier for people to ask for more details during interviews.”
