This was a Business Problem Solving half-day class. There was vibrant discussion and the instructor, Darrel Raynor, led us through some somewhat uncomfortable discovery -- but then we had a breakthrough and were able to work together much better. Darrel sensed that we had not centered on a decision process and almost like a therapist, forced us through discussion on who had the real power to make decisions. The group had an ah-ha moment and we were then able to make our key decisions right in class. He really did "Knock The Stupid" out of our lame decision process! Thank you Darrel!
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a great class. As an operations manager I feel empowered to organize my thoughts and processes in a manner that will be much more effective. I am recommending this class to some other folks in VerizonBusiness here in Austin that would have a vested interest."
"Thank you for the engaging and thought stimulating training. I can honestly say, it was one of the best training sessions I have attended while at <major international financial institution>. I hope to have the honor of hearing you speak again."
"I wanted to drop you a personal note to say thank you for the excellent course that you lead last week in the U.K. I have already benefited from putting in place some of the processes that you talked us through, and I’m looking forward to the new budget approvals so that I can get my teeth into new projects being kicked off and managing them in an efficient and transparent way."
"“Best course ever” (3); “More ways to improve our processes then we have heard before”; “Great stuff, we will need help implementing even a fraction”; “If this actually works (several different techniques…) then it will save us at least 10% of our time”; “Just the meeting minute avoidance will save us hundreds and hundreds of emails a year, and a lot of frustration!”; “Moving away from managing by emotion to managing by data may be what will help us all improve.”"
Thank you for an awesome presentation on PMO yesterday. I was hanging on every word - especially the part on documents! You were engaging and I liked the way you took time to answer questions during your presentation - and afterwards. Thanks again, Darrel.
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.
