Great introduction to a project management. I learned a lot.
my group would get lost some in the group activitys
The Project Management class exceeded my expectations! It was interactive, engaging, and most importantly, I walked away with new a skill-set that can be applied to my work, immediately. I'd recommend this class to anyone new to project management or if you are seeking the tools and processes to sharpen your current project management skills.
Great pace & examples of the material. Made the process easier to digest.
The course was great for where I currently am professionally. I am excited to bring these tools back to work and implement them.
This course exceeded my expectations. Will be very applicable to my current job.
The course was overall very helpful in generating situations that could be applied to my work environment. It help me grasp the framework for project management and provided techniques that I can apply to my daily tasks.
Great coarse that provided a comprehensive overview for those not formally trained or involved on a regular basis with Project Management
Instructor Robert is excellent. Material good. Seems like a lot to go over in a short amount of time. I think an extra 20-30 minutes each day would help.
Instructor was very positive and encouraging. Worked on getting teams together to collaborate
David was very knowledgeable and gave good examples in order to understand and have a clear picture of the topics reviewed throughout the course of the seminar.
Great course and I learned a lot. Wish I took this before I started my first Charter!
I came to this course to learn all I could about project management as I am usually a stakeholder. There was so much I learned and also it brought to light how much I have not seen in my organization prior to when I get involved. It will be nice to demonstrate what I've learned and be able to offer tips to those that I work with.
Kirby champion the challenge of teaching the course in limited time. He was excellent and covers everything in very interacting approach after first teacher got sick.
The only reason I'm rating this a 4 instead of a 5 were due to events outside of anyone's control. The original instructor had to leave due to some type of sickness half way through the first day. For a while we did not know what was going on but staff members came in later to let us know that another instructor had been found and the class would continue as scheduled.
Covered a broad range of PM topics without going very in depth into anything.
Our second teacher, Mr. Heynze was fantastic.
Kirby made the course applicable and engaging. Sitting for that long is difficult - he was able to read the room and use practical examples to keep us interested.
Came through even though a setback from first day when class instructor got sick and AMA had to replace that instructor.
Joe was fantastic. He made the class relatable and informative, while not being dry or boring.
The AMA facilities were in good shape, it was very nice that coffee was offered thank you. The teacher had all the course materials prepared. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
Wonderful, informative, knowledgeable instructor. It was a little irritating that the teachers materials, our handouts and the presentation don't match.
I had a great class and a great instructor who went over the necessary information in an easy to understand manner, made the class flow continuously thru out each day and allowed me to learn. The only negative was the course materials did not match the instructors teaching materials. She was able to easily improvise but that is not an effective tool.
My only complaint was that there was a clear disconnect between the book and the slides.
Connection kept dropping for multiple people in the course, so parts of the material were missed while the system reconnected. This sometimes took up to 10 mins. Unfortunately the recording is not provided after the course, so there is no way to pick up missed information. Huge disappointment!
Pat is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and engaging. The class material was well organized, the exercises helpful, and the objectives clear.
Pat engaged our small group very effectively. I enjoyed and derived much from the exercises.
The instructor was very knowledgeable of the subject and kept everyoneâ€™s attention throughout.
Great material and wonderful facilitation by Patricia
Instructor was very knowledgeable in the subject matter
The instructor was very knowledgeable. The materials need work - not always easy to follow and out of sequence.
Susan was an excellent facilitator. Her facilitation skills were great, but her real-life experience was what really made the class so excellent.
The faculty seemed highly knowledgeable and was able to translate the knowledge into a good learning experience for the student.
I am very new to project management and this course was perfect. Through an engaging instructor and team course work, I learned the basics of project management. I would recommend it to all new project managers or those who are considering project management as a career.
The trainer was incredibly knowledgeable on the subject. She presented the complex material in a way that was clear and easily digestible.
A great introductory course to the basics of project management, and how to achieve success in various aspects of the most challenging parts of the job.
Appreciate Stephany always asking if the class understood concepts throughout the 4 day course and taking the time to go back and further explain concepts as necessary.
The study cases provided a good example and foundation to the exercises necessary to do this work.
I learned a lot in such a short period of time and I will be bringing a lot back to my work place
This was the best class I have ever attu
This course was extremely helpful. I found the information very detailed and easy to understand. The instructor was very knowledgeable of the course material, engaging and personable.
great instructor, timely material
Good overview of project management tools and how to use them.Only downside materials provided were hardcopy
The course contained a lot of useful information. Having said that, the organization of the workbook in comparison to the slides was very difficult to maneuver, flipping back and forth between the text section and the slides section. I essentially gave up on the slides section although I know that I missed some important notes. Gene had a great wealth of knowledge and his examples proved to be beneficial in explaining the content in the workbook. Overall the course achieved the basic level of knowledge that I was seeking.
The case study was well constructed to illuminate project management concepts. The simulation was very effective in setting the tone for the importance of communication methods in project management.
This was a very useful class that helped me gain a much clearer understanding of how project management works.
The trainer was experienced and knowledgeable but the course material and pace of the course was very basic and fairly slow. While I did not learn too many new skills, the course reiterated things that wI was already aware of in terms of project management. If the pace were more efficient, we likely could have gotten through the material more in 2 days. I would only recommend this course to people just entering the field of project management. For those who have been in the workforce for any significant amount of time, I'd recommend a higher level course or something that is more specific to the skillset you need. Overall this was not
Great class. Content and discussions were appropriate for both complete novices and those with project management experience.
Excellent course and the teacher had a very good grasp of all concepts. I was hoping to have more modern examples from other students though. Maybe more class discussion?
Pretty good overall. A little rushed toward the end, but good content.
The hands-on practice was very beneficial. David, the instructor, was very knowledgeable with great "real-life" experience examples to help understand everyday practice of methods learned.
David was very knowledgeable about the subject. His passion showed and he was able to break down and relate the information to everyday work.
The instructor was engaging and had a lot of relevant experience for the course helping to explain the material being taught.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable and personable. The data provided will be invaluable in assisting me with my position. Thank you!
Instructor was the best AMA course instructor I have had. He was extremely knowledgeable, an excellent educator, and really knew how to get the class involved and stay engaged. Would absolutely recommend any course with David again!
This course has given me the knowledge to ask the right questions and improve the skills needed to manage projects better.
The material was useful for pre/post review and comprehension, but the real value was in the real world applicable examples and exercises the instructor (Kirby) used. He was an extremely talented teacher and I learned a great deal of useful tactics for planning and delivering on projects.
The training was good, and Kirby's stories kept me interested. Sometimes the stories seemed to get a bit offtrack on what I was really looking to learn about.
The course instructor did an excellent job keeping participants engaged and providing stories that helped apply the theories to our everyday work situation.
Excellent seminar as an entry-level course.
Kirby exhibited all the traits of a great teacher. He was thoroughly versed on the topics, engaged with each attendant and was capable of breaking down each idea into understandable terms. His daily agenda kept the class focused and enjoyable. Well worth the time and monetary investment for new and experienced project leaders.
Allison is very knowledgeable in this subject & she made the class fun!
Very energetic course. Allison had very good delivery of material and presented very well.
Did a great job in keeping everyone involved in the class.
The instructor was awesome and provided real life examples.
This really was an excellent training, but with the title of "Basics for Success," I had assumed it would be much more basic. Having project management experience would have been a huge benefit to anyone wanting to take this training. I got lost fairly frequently (at no fault of the instructor!) because a lot of what was discussed I didn't have any real life experience to draw from since I've never been a project manager.
Tech Support and Facilitator were great
I loved the interactive training, not just three hours of continuous talking. Presenter was very knowledgeable, professional and encouraging.
The instructor was very knowledgeable & able to answer all questions. Group participation in the breakouts could have been better but that could be based on people in the group. Slide content didn't always match to the provided lesson handouts, for instance closing the project. Providing better instruction for homework would be helpful, it was sometimes unclear what to do.
I'm new to the topic, I found the seminar very informative
Good introduction to Project Management.
Great course to learn the basics with a great instructor to explain.
Kirby is an excellent instructor. He provides relevant real world examples and clearly explains the course concepts in an interactive manner.
Very knowledgeable and skilled facilitator.
Already certified PM were attended the training. Differences in the level of experience.
I thought the course was very informative and I liked the hands on learning methods.
Pat was a great instructor. Wish it had been folks that were all on the same level experience. 1 person had much more and was older and dominated too often.That said, the course was as expected and the instructor was excellent
I really enjoyed the interaction of the class that the instructor presented
The instructor was very knowledge and kept the class engaged
Very informative class to teach a different way of thinking about projects. I learned a lot in terms of techniques for planning, budgeting, and estimating the duration of a project. I would recommend this course to anyone - experienced or not - working on various projects no matter the field/environment/area of expertise.
Kirby provided a lot of great information as he facilitated the interaction of students on group discussions. Great instructor.
Great very practical training for my own training project that I am working with big group of people
The Instructor was very concise and funny. He made learning more fun by having us work in groups and present what we learned. We went through each module of the book, and applied what we learned during breakout sessions.
This course gives a good introduction to the language, the tools and the general concepts of project management.
I really liked the course but felt the handouts/materials could have been put together better
Instructor made the course. There was so much information packed in 4 days, so an efficient instructor is key.
This was a great course for anyone who would like to learn more about PM or is wants an introduction to PM.
After taking the assessment the questions I missed were based on her comments, as in the question on kick off meeting she said it was for everyone to get to know, and the answer was to go over the project and start the project. I don't see that on the slide, in the reading or my notes. There were a few others like this and this was my first real seminar so I have had no other prior knowledge to these terms. Disappointed.
Instruction was great. It is just a lot to fit in such a short period of time, so it occasionally felt rushed.
Great instructor. He really has a gift for applying these skills to real-life situations so it is more practical and less theoretical.
Very comfortable setting. Our instructor Kirby was excellent and kept us engaged
David did a great job of teaching by breaking up lectures with group activities that highlight his points. He definitely kept it engaging and interesting.
The workshop was greatly designed with fundamental concepts of the PM and group exercise. Course instructor Mike was very good and a great communicator with his exceptional teaching techniques.
Gene was great. Knowledgeable and good flow to class. Would highly recommend this course to anyone who works on any kind of business project.
Excellent, well-organized instructor. Highly proficient teacher. Well versed in andragogy.
I couldn't be more satisfied with the class. I feel like I'm walking away with valuable skills that I can use at my immediately. I couldn't recommend this course any higher. Great experience!
The course had good content and Mike is very knowledgeable in regards to the course topic. This course was not beneficial to me as I was looking for more project management skills from a leadership prospective.
I gained the tools I was looking for in this course.
The schedule was very good, the pace was good and the instructor was knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.
The seminar was a good introduction to project management. Some of the content was quite basic (example: how to run a good meeting). The instructor was well organized, kept things moving, and made a potentially boring topic interesting. If the seminar included a basic introduction to software, I would have moved my rating to Excellent.My booklet's slides were out of order which made it difficult to follow along. The water in the room was not accessible to all. This is the first professional seminar that I have attended that did not have basic snacks available. Consider adding snacks in the future.
This class was great. The instructor was super knowledgeable and keep the class moving.
The instructor was engaging and charismatic. His knowledge of the material and ability to relate it to various situations made learning the information more interesting.
Good introductory course
Overall the presentation and training was very well made. The instructor understood and kept the information coming in a well thought out manner
This was an excellent, highly valuable course and I look forward to implementing many of the project management tools in my current role.
This class was exactly what I needed to get a start in Project Management. The action plans we completed in class have been an excellent resource.
Patricia was organized and engaging. The material was presented in a well managed sequence and the exercises were supportive of my learning experience.
Enjoyed the class and the hands on approach (case study) with the tools that's needed to be a Project Manager.
Great and very informative, I learnt a lot for the PM skills.
Great class I wish it would be longer. The instructor covered all the topics on project management and had us applying to a real scenario.
David was very knowledgeable and was able to effectively answer every question that was asked. He also made project management very relatable no matter the industry. Both David and John was extremely pleasant. I appreciated them also taking the time to give pointers, suggestions, and recommendations, to everyone on various aspects of Boston. The class was large at 24 people, which I thought made things a little more difficult at times, but David did a great job managing the room and taking the time to address any and all questions.
Debra was an amazing facilitator. Her knowledge of the subject, ability to engage the class and kindness was unmatched. She also checked in every 5 minutes to make sure everything made sense and that everyone was on the same page. The breakout activities were fun and informative and the size of the class made it even better for everyone to participate.
Great teacher, with lots of real world experiance
Great course that was very informative and interactive.
Sherolyn was an excellent instructor and was very knowledgeable about the subject. She had great enthusiasm and held the classes attention.
Good content, great examples to daily activity.
Having taken a intro to PM class before, this one was a good follow up class. I got a good survey of PM, enriched with real life examples.
Great class, useful approaches and techniques, even if not all were applicable in my work environment in particular.
I think the training was well thought out and crafted to the needs of corporate and professional managers seeking to learn best practices in this important discipline. Very well done!
The class provided a great introduction to the tools and methods used to be a successful project manager. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone new to project management.
This was a good way of practicing basic project management skills. The instructor gave some great examples and different ways of thinking about problems/how to solve them, that we as project managers face.
This course was absolutely wonderful. The instructor brought decades of professional experience to a small, enthusiastic group and I learned many skills I will directly apply to my position.
Very good overview for improving PM skill set. Susan was an excellent instructor. Ben's support was stellar.
Susan has real life experiences that helped her relate concept to real actions from here past... this really helped in explanation and learning the topic
Great review of the fundamentals for me. I had previous training, but had not used several of the concepts for a while. This course really helped reinforce a solid foundation.
I believe the course was handled well and was very informative. I liked how interactive it was and that we were able to use real life events in order to learn.
I think this class was a very good overview of project management.
Instructor was the best part of this course. He read the room and made changes when needed (speed, interactivity, etc). He also taught in a hands on perspective, making it easier for me to apply what I've learn.
The instructor was fantastic, he was extremely knowledgeable, personable, humorous, and utilized great analogies. The scenarios and course materials were great too.
Instructor was very Professional and knowledgeable in her presentation.
I was blown away with the instructors expertise and knowledge of the project management field.
Lisa, was thorough, hilarious, engaging and kept my interest. Her knowledge of each module made the course flow with ease and I often felt at the end of the day, is it over already! I hope she teaches other AMA PM courses.Thanks for the insight Lisa!
The teaching style of the class was great in learning the objectives of the course, step by step. The instructor was very helpful and energetic throughout the course.
Great instructor and fun and engaging team exercises that helped us learn.
This training is not what I expected. I am happy that I enrolled for this training and very satisfied of my experienced with this class. This class is not intimidating. Let me start with the instructor - the instructor was very engaging. He provided a lot of case studies, actual scenarios, and exercises that created an excellent dynamic workshop amongst the participants. He tied some of his professional experiences that provided us a better understanding of how different practices were done in the past prior to the concept of offering Project Management Training to professionals.This class is not geared towards one level. Whether you are a beginner or in the advance stage of your career in project management, this class breaks down the different stages of project management and how it applies to each professional who manages or involve in any team project. It is an excellent review for those who are in their advance level as well as for those who are just starting to learn the steps.The training material is an added bonus and easy to follow. I highly recommend this training to professionals who want to brush up with their techniques and for those who intend to develop their technical skills.
The instructor was very good. I felt that each day moved at a good pace as he was able to switch things up here and there as we went along. I felt very engaged, and that the subject matter was on point with what I needed to learn. I would highly recommend this course and would certainly enjoy another training with this instructor.
THE INSTRUCTOR WAS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE AND BREAK DOWN THE COURSE SO IT WAS EASILLY UNDERSTOOD AND ABSORBED.
Excellent class, very well organized with clear distinct objects for each module.
The class was very informative.
Good refresher touching on all phases of project management
Good introductory course, but would prefer more detail on how to deploy methods and tools learned.
Facilitator and workshop was overall very good. Patricia was engaging and knew the content well. Her time management was excellent.
Very informative and useful to my every day work
Engaging and enlightening
This course helped to solidify my skills at my current job and gave me great ideas to use at work.
The class was extremely informative, helpful and relatable to my position as a new project manager. Our instructor, Patricia was fantastic and very engaging!
Great introductions into the core and basics of Project Management
I learned a lot, everything that the instructor said we would cover we did. I had a great group of people on my team. I really found value in the group exercises that we did throughout the 3 day course.
The course was excellent! I learned a ton that immediately has helped me in my job and life. I can't recommend this highly enough for anyone who needs a framework for thinking about projects in any context.
This class had a high quality instructor. He had a lot of experience that he didn't mind sharing and he was very good at answering questions from the class.
