Excellent training that will definitely translate into my workplace. Wish we could have had a little more time to explore some concepts in more depth.One facility level suggestion is not limit your news coverage on the monitors to CNN. I have found that CNN is unreliable for real journalism, and it would be more fair to offer alternatives. Otherwise, the facility is comfortable and conducive for learning.

Overall, Fantastic course! The information on project management was extremely valuable and very timely for me! To improve the course further I would just suggest two things:1. Extend the course to 3 days. There is so much information to share, extending the course by one day would add even more value.2. Increasing the number of group activities would be helpful. There were a few that we were not able to do at the end due to time constraints. Extending the course by one day would enable and even more comprehensive understanding of the Basics of Project Management.
