  • “Thank you so much for sharing your vast practical industry experience in the framework provided by the concepts discussed in class. The resources that you have pointed to us (websites, software apps, diagrams, etc) and discussion on the practical application of those concepts, have made me aware of opportunities where data analysis can help our organization better allocate time and money backed up by data… I am looking forward to sequels of our classes perhaps around "Risk Analysis" and "Big Data Analytics"… You did a great job controlling the class, and engaging us to participate so that we all benefited from different vertical industry perspectives. Looking forward to staying in touch.”

He's a strong leader and always willing to roll up his sleeves and get a little dirty. He's a motivated do-er, driven to succeed, and is one of the most determined people I've worked with in my career. Certainly a strong operations, PMP, or program/project management leader!”

  • "Throughout our class I enjoyed your thoughts on how important the communication process is. I have been on projects where stakeholders were not engaged and there was a general lack of effective communication; a true recipe for disaster. I like how you tout simplicity, and especially how you mention the importance of eliminating redundancy. Just like the example you provided in class about database normalization, redundancy is a killer. Nothing is more soul crushing, it is sloppy and creates more work than necessary. Thanks for sharing.

  • "Their approach to BA solutions is refreshing. The organization understands from a strategic perspective that in order to accomplish enterprise-wide projects both your team members and the organization need to be in alignment with open communication channels. I had an opportunity to work with other firms who rely on technology as the core aspect of BA functions. The DA&R approach embraces people, process and technology allowing for a complete solution. I would recommend DA&R for any BA related solution development as we were very satisfied with their competence, creativity and
    flexibility."

After the course, I became PMP certified and started a new and exciting job as a project manager in the healthcare industry. The program dual focus on Best Practices and PMP Prep was just what I needed. It was great to interact with senior project management consultants who are out there on the cutting edge doing it, not just talking about it. I recommend this program for anyone who wants to really understand project management and in fact leadership, and optionally may want to certify with the PMP or CAPM.

  • "Darrel Raynor’s Project Management class at St. Edwards was extremely beneficial to my career. As a project manager with a wide range of experience working in non-profit, advertising, and digital, the class was an excellent way for me to gain exposure to PM best-practices and connect with peers from a wide range of industries. I learned a lot from the diverse group of students, and I feel that the training focus on real life examples and scenarios was deeply enriching.

    Now that I am working in New York City at a PMO for a top advertising
    agency, I am extremely grateful for the solid PM education I received in
    Austin. Darrel and his fellow teachers’ subject matter expertise, real word applications, and entertaining learning environment created a holistic model from which I draw in my day-to-day management of projects.

    Darrel was especially helpful when I asked for his guidance in figuring
    out the best-practice approach to solving a process-oriented problem I
    had with organizing vast amounts of project documentation. I appreciate
    his willingness to provide continuing education support and share his
    expertise—and my projects are all the better for it!

    I feel confident that my experience at St. Edwards was exactly what I
    needed to advance my career. I would recommend this class to anyone
    who desires to be best equipped for an exciting and challenging career in project management."

Darrel does a great job keeping the pace smooth and the material digestable even though the concepts can be overwhelming. His experience as both a Project Manager and instructor are evident in how he blends real world examples into the curriculum.

He is a pragmatic problem-solver adept at mapping a straight course from chaos to stability. He specializes in turnarounds - some of the most difficult situations Project Managers face - and has developed PMI-certified training that enriches the basic course material of the PMI with Darrel's real-world experience and practices.”

He challenges you to think through real world scenarios - scenarios that he shares from his vast experience in Project and Program Management. You won't be listening to someone reading from slides in Darrel's class. But you will still be very well prepared to take and pass the PMP certification exam. I highly recommend Darrel's class to anyone who is considering taking courses on real life PM principles or PMP exam prep. With Darrel you get a rich experience that covers both objectives."

  • "With a personal desire to change my project/program management behaviors and enhance my leadership skills, I went in search of a learning institution that would meet my needs and is highly respected. This I found in the Agile and Integrated Project Management (A&IPM) Evening Certificate Program taught at St. Edward's University-Professional Education Center. The instruction is world-class and delivered in a professional setting. Regardless of your education and experience, be prepared to walk away as a more efficient, focused, and disciplined project manager and leader. A key differentiation for me came from forming teams the first night, deciding on a project, and while rotating the PM baton taking the project from concept to close. In addition, many institutions teach the 'what' while this program focused on and demonstrated the 'how'. I also gained a stronger understanding of what Executives are seeking from the PM and how to deliver project definition/status using organized data and documented processes in which they will have confidence--this is worth the tuition alone. I am using the A&IPM techniques with early success, and with conviction I am recommending this course to anyone seeking to take their project management and leadership skills to a higher level."

The instruction is world-class and delivered in a professional setting. Regardless of your education and experience, be prepared to walk away as a more efficient, focused, and disciplined project manager and leader. A key differentiation for me came from forming teams the first night, deciding on a project, and while rotating the PM baton taking the project from concept to close. In addition, many institutions teach the 'what' while this program focused on and demonstrated the 'how'. I also gained a stronger understanding of what Executives are seeking from the PM and how to deliver project definition/status using organized data and documented processes in which they will have confidence--this is worth the tuition alone. I am using the A&IPM techniques with early success, and with conviction I am recommending this course to anyone seeking to take their project management and leadership skills to a higher level."

  • "Darrel was brought on-board to take over management of a large, priority project with immediate need for daily oversight and direction. Darrel's experience with large IT implementations allowed him to move directly into position and become effective with minimal ramp up. From day one, he was comfortable and confident in client facing meetings and a quick study of the strategic and tactical issues. With confidence, I can recommend Darel for similar situations and for a wide range of others as well."

  • "As the founding Director of The HeliOS Project, it was important to me to surround myself with like-minded and dedicated people. It wasn't easy. We spend almost every free hour we have accumulating broken computers, triaging them and then building and testing them to give away to disadvantaged kids. It's not easy finding someone who will really dedicate themselves to this intense of an effort. Darrel Raynor stepped forward and volunteered to do what we needed done. We needed a Director of Asset Management. It's not easy getting corporations to part with decent used machines and parts. Darrel's professional and personal network was a perfect fit for our needs. He was able to quickly step in and start making contacts that were closed to me. What I appreciate most about Darrel is that when he says he's going to do something, you can be assured that it goes to the top of his priority list and he does as he says. Darrel Raynor has the talent, energy and character to do anything he sets out to do. The HeliOS Project is more than fortunate that he chose us to demonstrate it."

  • "I have had the privelege to work directly with Darrel on a number of occasions while he created our company's project management education curriculum. Darrel is a very dynamic, creative and motivational presenter. Darrel is very knowledgeable in many aspects of project management and information technology. He does an excellent job in blending his past experiences to help students and fellow instructors take away new information and tools they can immediately put in place to be more productive. From a service providers standpoint, Darrel is very hands-on and active in working directly with his clients. I'd hire Darrel anytime in the future if the need arose. Also, Darrel is a great resource for project kick offs and post project reviews."
