The course was focused too much on passing the exam. It should be about learning and gaining knowledge of a subject. Some people felt awkward about having their marks heard in class especially if they failed. People were too concerned about who passed and who didn't. The questions were too cryptic and not easy to answer. YOu had to spend too much time trying to understand the questions when you only have 40mins. I also think the last part of the course was rushed.

Thanks Ray! I came away still having difficulty gauging how to categorise outputs, capabilities, outcomes, benefits and objectives however appreciate it will be a matter of practice and application. It was beneficial being on the course with Angus who was able to provide examples using an interesting and Health related project. Regards, Chris

My response with "poor" is based on not being provided with any information about the course until approx 1 week before hand and was very high level at best. It was also not clear in the documentation provided that the exam was not part of the course and came with an additional $500. I realise the ATO arranged this course but at no stage was I aware that I wouldn't be sitting the exam. The timing of the last day was also not known until the start of the course - interstate travellers had arranged their travel around the advertised end time of 5pm resulting in significant time between the end time of 12pm and the flight time of 7.30pm. Perhaps this could have been advised in the course material so more appropriate plans could have been put in place. Other than that Ash was great and exceptionally patient.

Again thank you for putting this on, I know this topic doesn't come round often. Benefits management should usefully complement the project management work people here are more familiar with.

The best thing you could do is make the text book available in advance - so much of the exam relies on a deeper knowledge of the book and 2.5 days is not enough to review it.

Without the additional questions/workshops I don't believe I would have understood the benefits mapping.

The course covered large volume of information in short session which led to flying through slides. Would have been better if more time was given to digest the information.

The exam was very much geared towards retention vs comprehension. I believe questions relating to drafting up a benefits plan would suit much better than questions revolving around different models that were very much hidden within the textbook and not truly covered.

Catering quality was good, quantity was not.

Looking foward to Practitioners couse. Enjoyed Ash's training style. He was very helpful considering I couldn't make a day and I only passed because he was able to quickly convery the concepts to me that I missed.

The course was 2.5 days, and was a bit slow in pace. It would have been easily handled in 2 days. Also, I would have preferred less "transmit" from the presenter, and more group discussion and examples. There was knowledge in the room that wasn't really tapped into.

If somehow time permits, what would be really useful would be setting up an example at the start of the course that the trainer references from time to time during the course. e.g. - I want to build a new house (this is the initive) This way the trainer could use that initiave all the way through the program/course an outline how you would 'sell' that idea to the executive.- benefits mapping, investment logi maps, etc....I would have found this really useful rather than using many different organisational examples at different points as each time you use a real world example there are a whol raft of assumptions come into play.
