  • “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.” Read Berry's complete success story here.

    ”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.”
