Very well run, with a nice blend of learning - I can't think of any improvements. Relaxed, enjoyable but learned plenty. I like that I didn't realise how much I was learning until I sat the exams - it seemed like my days (at least the first three) were just spent discussing ideas but, in the background, a lot of learning was happening.

The course was very compressed, so despite pre-reading and evening review, I didn't feel confident with the terminology even by end day three. Also though the overall model makes a lot of sense and aligns with how I've always experienced change programs/projects should occur, the models 'organisational structure' was new with very specific terms and constructs applied. Hence this made the testing more about remembering the specifics of roles and functions and terminology, which was then complicated with language of test not aligned with language in resources. Thank you.

It could have been better by perhaps attempting to control a particularly disruptive participant earlier so we didn't have to rush through some of the material to get it done.

The materials (folder and text book) are some of the most useful resources I've ever come away from a course with. I know there'll be even more tags and highlighting in them as they move from being a text book for a course to a 'how to' guide when I incorporate them into my practice.

Probably one of the best training sessions I’ve ever attended. Excellent venue, good materials, good class size, motivated attendees and great food. Sometimes it’s the little things such as a well organised venue that make content driven training like this more enjoyable. My only suggestion would be a longer course or perhaps a day or 2 private time between the foundation and Practitioner exams to allow the content to ‘sink in’. A document containing ‘highlights’ from each chapter may also be handy… perhaps a page of dot points with the key points to be used during the course and after the course as a refresher when required. Overall I think it would be very difficult to offer a better course in 5 days. Thanks again Yellowhouse, I will be back for more….. after I recover from this one!

Brian has a very narrative style which was good in providing practical examples to reinforce a MSP core element but he would improve training quality by focusing or tightening their use. Other areas of possible improvement are: 1. MSP is quite tiered and interrelated and more focused discussion on how MSP is constructed and the framework would help in initial understanding and improve ease of understanding later on 2. More worked examples of key strategies or plans might help student understanding of what they look like and help understanding. When worked examples of benefit maps were handed out it was a lot easier to understand

I use average as a bench mark, the course was excellent and was a personal and professional development activity. It would be worth discussing the need for self-belief at the beginning of the course. I found it'd was a journey of self belief as much as the ability to understand UK English, the pressure created during the course could be better managed individually if the informal course lessons could be feed back. The other element that helped me was the end of day debriefs with the course members where we'd actually discuss snippets of information gleamed during the day or over our study at night.

The exam detracts from the course. My suggestion is to provide a more lengthy set of multiple choice questions say 300, that would be completed by the candidate in the month following the course in an open book environment. That would achieve much better overall outcomes.

Brian was a fantastic trainer. The course ran really well. We had a small group of 8, which meant everyone was able to contribute to discussions and while there was allot to cover in 3 days, it was all very relevant to my role and the programme I have just started on. Oh, and the food was amazing!!

Because I don't have much experience in the Program Management space (and the way my organization implements program management is not quite "correct") I found the course content just "floated" by me. I can't come up with any ways on how to improve it, though. :) The Hilton facilities and meals were ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! Thank you VERY much!

Brain was excellent. A very intelligent, charismatic presenter who certainly had our best interests at heart. He always responded to our questions thoroughly to ensure we knew and understood as much as possible. The only minor issue I had was that I felt most of the material we were trying to learn was presented quite quickly, and there was slightly more time given to general chit chat/slightly off the topic conversations. While some of this chat was important and interesting, I feel a little more time to cement the MSP learnings would be beneficial for the course. I am still more than happy to recommend this course and also attend future trainings with Yellowhouse.

Huge amount of material to cover in a short space of time. In order to obtain the accreditation there was the added pressure of the test. I did start to read the book prior to the training but found it only started making sense once the training was underway. In an ideal world it would be helpful if split into two sessions with weeks between the sessions. A introduction session, time for participants to read and answer practise questions (over a few weeks) then a second set of sessions to attend a course and consolidate the information - then the test.

I think the content could be covered in a four day course. It seemed a little crammed for time. The reading material is really excellent. I have to think a bit more about the layers of Governance, Strategy Docs, Planning docs and who's responsible or them all. There may be scope to show this in another way to tie it all together. I might be just slow. But I passed!! Yeah.

The course was great. Very well organised and the communication before the course was fantastic too. Brian was an excellent trainer. There was an awful lot of information to take in over the 3 days but you certainly wouldn't want to make the course any longer. I don't think you could do anything differently. I would certainly recommend Yellowhouse to others. Thank you!
