Read what previous participants say about this programme

“It’s an intensive and very interactive three days, but well designed with a clear structure. I liked the open discussions a lot, It was interesting – and eye-opening – to learn with participants from different countries. They were all very open when we discussed the diversity of culture in project management. The teacher was very good – clear and constructive, open, patient, and funny. I appreciated him sharing lots of practical examples from his experiences, as well as teaching us theories and tools.”

Le Chen, Program Coordinator Food Security for PUM Netherlands Senior Experts

Through the course and subsequent coaching I got a broader view on project management, how to deal with changes in culture and how to use various methodologies such as agile integration. This will help me to become more successful as a project manager, as I work with different company and country cultures. I’ve improved my skills in scoping, scaling and planning projects by applying methodologies. And I have a better understanding of how I should deal with the environments I work in.

Berry Schulte, management consultant and project manager, Omnibia Consulting

I have been enjoying the Project Management in Practice virtual classroom very much so far. I was curious to see how the programme would be translated into an online setting instead of a traditional classroom but I must admit that the sessions so far have exceeded my initial expectations. I find Tony's guidance and interaction with my fellow classmates very insightful. Keep up the good work!

Athina Papadopoulou, Operations & Projects Officer, LIBER Europe

Useful programme describing project planning, components and behaviours. The interactive workshops embedded into the programme make it more effective by showing how principles of project management can be put into action. RSM provides a good speaker with pictorial diagrams and real life situations, which make the programme more interesting.

Swarna Palakollu, IT Service Delivery & Application Manager, ING Bank

This programme is very much about practice and experiences. RSM draws quality people to this quality programme, so learning from peers across industries and cultures – in addition to content – adds great value.
