The experiences and suggestions set forth by the facilitator were absolutely exceptional, relevant, easy to follow, enjoyable and engaging. Probably the best class I have ever taken. The instructor really knew how to effectively link the information presented.
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.
We just got the same or better level of Agile consulting from you in this course, that we pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for from others, and the advice was better! Much more realistic, not academic. We will have you back.
This course prepared me for the next project I am assigned to. I am hoping my management will continue to assign projects to me. This course has given me the tools I need to demonstrate that I can run projects and that I am valuable contributor.
Darrel is the person to go to for a struggling project or to learn how real world project management happens. Having his backing is certain to super-charge your results on any project. What is most amazing though is how easy it is to work with Darrel. He doesn't come in and start pushing people around. His confidence comes though in how comfortable he is working with people without having to rely on being pushy. If you need someone to get things back on track or someone to mentor your team on how to keep things on track, working with Darrel is the best choice you will make.
Darrel is the best they come in the world of Project Management and Data Analytics. I have come to know Darrel as an instructor, as well as a mentor, when attending his executive PMP course at St. Edward's University. His masterful agile approach towards project management has paid dividends when working with my clients in the past. I have also had the great privilege and opportunity to be brought on as a consultant for Darrel's business and work with many of his clients. When you work with Darrel, you are working with a professional in the field.
Through St. Edward’s Professional Education and Data Analysis & Results’ “Project Management Certificate” program, I gained valuable “real-life” knowledge and formed networking relationships that helped me further my career in project management. 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. Thanks Darrel Raynor for a great course!
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.
