What to do when your good course goes bad.

Over the last few weeks five people have told me that they were very unhappy with the quality of their recent project management course. Complaints have included the inexperience of the trainer, logistical failings such as pre-read course material being delivered on the first day of the course, one 5 day classroom course was cancelled then re-scheduled over a weekend via skype. Just today, my lunch guest (a senior Program Office Manager) told me that he could have delivered a better change management course last week (no he’s not a trainer).

I asked each person “Did you tell the trainer?”, “ What did the training provider do when you told them you were not happy?” Every person replied with a half frown, shrugged their shoulders and said they didn’t do anything, because they didn’t know what to do.
