HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"After 25 years in the project management field and having undertaken many courses and qualifications, I can confidently state that PPB is the most useful course I have taken.  The course focuses on the most important part of any project, getting it off the ground.  It has fundamentally changed how I plan and initiate projects using a set of tangible tools and techniques that are implementable irrespective of the size or complexity of the project.  It is rare that a course can deliver real change in how you manage something you have done for many years and PPB has successfully achieved this for me.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to develop their PM skillset." - John Bourke, Project Director
