Overall, the experience was fantastic. The course was definitely worth my time and financial investment. The highly inspiring, insightful and motivated lecturer Dr. Guidotti changed the way I design, implement, and manage my projects. On top of that, my fellow students’ critical thinking, dynamism and generosity had a beneficial impact on my learning journey.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Strategic Project Management for Development course. Each of the three modules thoroughly covers the stages of the project management cycle. Matteo is a great facilitator/teacher who applies different teaching modalities throughout the course. The diversity of participants and sharing of experiences and learnings also enriched my whole course experience. I can recommend the course both for beginners as well as people who have already had some project management experience "on the job" but never received any formal training.
Matteo's course opened up an entirely different door for me to think about projects. It was real, substantial, and of tremendous value to development practitioners and leaders.
Extensive education on strategic project management for development for relevance and impact.
Matteo is a clear, highly trained, experienced top leader of strategic project management.
