Lizz was extremely knowledgeable and was able to give valid "real life" experience while explaining the processes and activities. This was particularly helpful when showing how the application of Prince2 principles would have improved early projects that she was "thrown" into.

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.

I only have experience with Prince2 projects. Although I understood the agile techniques, I found they "blurred" in my mind, as I don't have practical experience. I would have benefited from some practical activities to experience the agile techniques.

Course Name : Managing Benefits Practitioner

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.

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 at Yellowhouse provided a very supportive and open environment for learning. He drew together the content with participant experience and I made many insights as a result. The content of this course is mega, however it is skillfully covered. Three days is not enough to explore topics in depth, however the course provides a fantastic foundational overview and I feel much more confident in applying content and learnings to my work environment. I\'m looking forward to doing the Practitioner course later this year.

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
