Evaluation Strategy. Kirkpatrick's method of evaluation was built into the program to evaluate satisfaction, retention and behaviour change.
Packaging. The materials were branded to suit the needs of the organization and offered visual appeal.
- Communication Style. The program used straightforward business communication, relevant to the target audience.
" The small size of the group allowed us to move through material quickly and still have good discussions. "
" Instructor Peter Taylor was outstanding as he led this class. The small group of five led to some very interesting conversation as the course progressed. It also enabled trust to develop quickly and therefore a more open and honest environment. The subject matter of the course was fascinating! "
" The subject matter selected to be taught in this course fits exactly to my current job roles. The teacher did an excellent job relating that info to specific job responsibilities and selected example companies. "
" Thank you John for sharing your knowledge, experiences and allowing us to share ours. Invaluable experience! "

" I was very focused all three days as the program suited our environment very much. "
" Janelle is a terrific course administrator. She made everything very easy to understand and the information was of benefit to my boss and I. "
" The course offered good information with solid examples. "
" The course was very professional and friendly. Ms. Rose was a joy to be around and she made all the role-playing games not as intimidating as I thought they'd be. "
" I like how open the course was - open discussion and not following hundreds of pages in a binder. "
" Most importantly, the course gave an overview of the role project management has within an organization. It provided ideas of how to breakdown a project into bite-sized steps. "
