From past graduates of the course

I have learned a large number of skills in project management, the art of negotiation, as well as computer skills, such as PowerPoint and presentation skills.

I can use the skills from the course in my everyday work, as one of my functions is to analyse our services and processes and improve them.

The methodology is excellent and allows a structured format to work with.
