Lizz did a wonderful job and her best advice was straight up, saying best to let what you know go ... and learn the material. Liz's calm and precise style of presenting countered the large amount of quite overwhelming content. As I mentioned to Lizz I understand the course was 4 days; I'm not one to take in too much new material on the day of an exam so this was challenging. I guess I passed and whilst that may have been the goal initially, I enjoyed doing the workshops and probably didn't get as much as I could have in the 3rd day workshops for sustained learning. I loved the experience thank you Lizz and Brian.

It took a couple of days for me to get my head around what was going to be taught and how it was to be taught. But then I signed up late - so that flexibility was great - but probably made it more challenging. Great learning environment, experienced leaders

I've commented that the course was too fast and too short and this reflects the conversations we had around the issues with the syllabus and the granular level of detail in some of the questions. While the course teaching overall was great, I still felt that at the end of the 4.5 days, I wasn't well equipped enough to have the knowledge required to be confidently successful in the exam. This is not a reflection on the teaching rather the course overall.

It's been a long time since I've been in such an intense learning environment, I feel that doing the Foundation and Practitioner courses in just 5 days was a bit rushed for my learning style - perhaps had it been extended over another day or two I would have had more time to absorb the information a little better. At least I didn't have any urge to fall asleep in class! :D Regardless of feeling somewhat overwhelmed with the amount of information, I felt the course was great and that Sue was a fantastic, interactive trainer.

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.

Course Name : Managing Benefits Foundation

Let me start with the course. There is a lot of good information but it is very intense and full on so be prepared to spend time outside of the classroom learning it to pass the exam and to apply back in the workplace. The content the trainers have to work with is great but very theoretical, lots of terminologies that you won't use in the workplace but you have to learn for the exam. The group I was in felt that the amount of content you have to learn, and to better understand it's practical application back in the work place, it would need the course to be longer. My scoring here is based mainly on the trainer because of the above constraints he had to work in. He was able to bring to the table practical experience and examples to break down and teach the intense content. He was also able to bring some humour to the table which broke up the intensity. Brian also has the ability to bring out the groups experiences and links this to the course to assist in learning.

The course content was great but the trainer... Brian Phillips, he was able to support it by providing examples of experience and encouraged others to share their experiences so all could interact and learn in this way rather than just go through the course materials. Because he gets to know the people attending the course he is able to provide examples that and help that you can take back and implement in the workplace. He is very passionate about this industry and understands it well but also can have some fun which makes a week long course much more enjoyable! Brian has also gone a step further by setting up a forum where those that have completed the course can meet together a few times a year and share experiences, discuss new trends and work through issues that they may be facing and does all this for free! I would highly recommend this course, Brian Phillips and Yellowhouse not only for this course but all your training needs in this industry.

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.

Everyone is different - and there needs to be a balance, but I thought there was a bit too much group work that I didn't find very useful. Conversations as a whole group sometimes got off track and went much longer than they should have. But at the same time I understand some people need to get clarification prior to being able to proceed -- this can hold other participants up.

Course Name : MSP Managing Successful Programmes Practitioner

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.

Lizz was so knowledgeable and also very adaptive to our different learning styles. It was refreshing to ask a question and not just have the text book read back at us. A comment that was made by Lizz on day 2 was a turning point for me and was really nothing to do with the examinable material. She was discussing her experience and how others were doubting their ability and she looked around and said 'hell, if they can do it sure as hell I can!' This is the way that I approach most other things in my life but for a day and a half I'd forgotten. She wasn't being paid to be a motivational speaker but sometimes it's those little comments which have the most impact. Thanks!

I felt the content was more relevant for Business Analysts working in this space e.g. they would be involved in the value appraisals in terms of having to be 'more than just familiar' with cognitive biases and the financial modelling side of things. My role will require me to advise the business where to go to get this expert advice and to ensure the right people are involved in the process, but I will be facilitator of these discussions e.g. through insight workshops and will be focusing more on reporting and reviews to ensure benefits are tracked/monitored appropriately once the framework and methodology is embedded.

In the 5 or so years I've had had dealings with Yellowhouse (both for my own training, for the many Department staff we (as the PPO team) brokered training for, and other sessions we have had Yellowhouse deliver (PRINCE2 in small projects, PRINCE2 2005 to 2009 changes sessions, etc.); Yellowhouse has consistently delivered a very high standard training and capability development. Keep up the good work!!!

The laid back learning and the amazing facilities of the Hilton. The facilitator Lizz was fantastic also. Lizz was knowledgeable and had great real life examples which helped and our group got on well. Great dynamic.

Course Name : MSP Managing Successful Programmes Practitioner

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!
