- Technical Architect at global export organization
“I use this program daily - both professionally and personally. I am applying the RACI model to help coordinate my team to work effectively, I have regular 1:1’s where my team can communicate their successes and struggles, we discuss how they can stretch and we can give constructive feedback in a safe environment. To sum it up I do think I am a better and more accountable manager. I would recommend this course to any manager.”

Hearing similar challenges and solutions from other managers will boost your confidence, help you know you are not alone in your daily challenges, and see that there are methods to solve problems quickly."
