I took the course titled 'Data Analysis Foundation' with Darrel Raynor. The course content was extremely useful and the sessions were very engaging, enriching and insightful. Darrel is a great instructor, who uses lots of real-world examples and scenarios to teach complex things and makes it look so easy and simple. Also, he utilizes various teaching aids that make the course very interesting and creative.
They were such GREAT notes! In doing my feedback, I noted that I learned so much today. ... I got so much today that I feel empowered to do my job as a BSA. THANK YOU! I’ll definitely get in touch with you!
The process, stories and discussion were really fun to experience. -Very good course. I learned a lot. -This was very enjoyable. I got a lot out of it and plan to use as much as I can! -Great lessons/Material. -Darrel provided valuable information that I will use in the ‘Real World.’ -Great teacher. I would like to take other courses with Darrel Raynor. -Everything was good. -Thanks for providing a great class. That last instructor (Alfredo) was superb.
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.
I attended a 10 week course Darrel taught on Program Management and how to make our Program Management Office "World Class". His fresh look at proven concepts was thought provoking and practical. Implementing some of the concepts Darrel tailored for our organization, we are streamlining internal processes and minimizing cost! Thanks Darrel." and "We still quote you and often still discuss the principles that came out of our time together.
We realized the first day that we were our own worst enemy. Come ready to change and you will benefit greatly from this business analysis training. We will bring Darrel and his team in-house prior to our next big project.
The PMO exercise you provided is an excellent learning tool. I've read your binder 5 times, the PMBOK 4 times, and the book you recommended 3 times. Your lectures are packed with real world knowledge! I would never have survived from the books alone!
