"I recommend this training because it identifies methods to execute projects to successful completion. The most important thing I learned was: Sponsor, Charter, Stakeholder, Portfolio, and Closure: The formal process of a project. I enjoyed Prof Lomax's delivery of the information. Thank you to him. He was available after class for questions--even helping me on a small business to identify risks"
