"The Trainer's ability to go the extra mile and answer all questions related to the functions, tools and techniques played an important role in enabling a strong understanding of the P3O model. The trainer was punctual, professional and hands-on managing the interactivity of the session. The excellent course material provided a solid understanding of the P3O concepts. The course flow was organized and easy to follow. I recommend Invensis Learning for their trainings and I will be glad to take another course from Invensis in future."
