    Excellent training, as well as examples from real projects. I liked the approach very much, and also the fact that the trainers helped with the solution of real problems.
    Andrey Barbier
    Project Manager @ Softeq
    In fact, after a couple of weeks, I can more accurately say what [the Program and Portfolio Management course] gave me as a PM. I kind of got 3D vision of the client's business and product. Even if so far one is not talking about expanding Agile in depth and breadth in client companies, it's much clearer for me what they need, how it's built and prioritized. As a bonus, it became easier to negotiate and promote my decisions.

    I'm happy that such a high level of certification is available in Minsk. A well-balanced program and excellent, productive and fun interaction with class members. The most value have 2 pages with notes of ideas and materials for studying outside the class. Many thanks to the trainers!
