Fantastic. I am actually recommending that my entire team do this training!! The Instructor was very helpful and was willing to work one on one if needed. I have been coming to different classes over the last year and always walk away with helpful information to take back to work and help me be successful. Candice Shaffer, Meritrust Credit Union
“These classes are educational and interesting. They are a well defined way to increase skills and comprehension on the given subject matter.” Travis Wells, TECT Aerospace
“CMD has been an awesome program to be a part of. After taking these courses, the leadership here was impressed with the knowledge and initiative I’ve taken, and I was actually just moved into the PMO group here in KBS. Without the information I learned, I don’t think I would be where I am today. Thank you so much for such a wonderful program!” Laurel Anderson, Koch Business Solutions
“There are several other sessions offered that I think would be valuable for my development. This course was a great opportunity to learn new skills & refresh skills I already have. Additionally, I appreciated the opportunity to connect with others at different companies.” Becky Washington, INTRUST Bank
Eric Eaton, KanOkla Networks
“This is a great program and I am learning a lot during the courses of the project management certificate. I am constantly learning things to take back and apply to work. This instructor’s presentation methods really evoked thought in a way that is conducive to my learning. He went at a good pace, set expectations well, and appropriately explained the course materials. I really like his “Table Boss” concept that allowed us to take turns being the project manager for the table. It taught me a lot how I work and may be perceived by others. This is not something I get “on the job” because our projects typically only have one project manager and I am not involved in other projects.” A participant in Dr. Graham’s Project Leadership and Communication session.
“Good instructor, very good breakout exercises and conversation. Instructor was very knowledgeable & provided good examples of real world application. Helped relate new material to material/tools which you may already possess. Condensed class encourages focus to drill into the core concepts and forces you to apply the skills, knowledge being obtained in a friendly environment of peers and local community. This setting also provides opportunity to build relationships with local business/professionals.” Ravon Kirkendoll, BG Products
“It was a wonderful learning experience that I truly enjoyed. All of the instructors were masters in their field that shared not only their classroom knowledge but their many years of actual work experience. That combination of skill set is unique and is what sets CMD apart from the rest. Each class segment contained so much class participation that it was almost impossible to complete without learning a new skill or enhancing current skills. It also kept the class interesting and it was easy to stay focused on the lesson. I always look forward to attending each class. The effort that is spent to accommodate the participants is top notch and just another detail that makes CMD the place to be for continued development.” Mina Miller, Program Manager, Leading Technology Composites Inc. Master Certificate in Project Management recipient.
“I definitely enjoyed the CMD class, “Managing Project Teams”. You and your staff do such an excellent job of ensuring that the two days are extremely informative and comfortable.

“From registration to the greeting to the training, the program was phenomenal! The CMD team has excellent customer service, and they always make people feel welcomed and their ideas and concerns valued! Dr. Graham does a fantastic job of relaying the content in an interactive way and explaining the research behind best practices, but still empowering attendees to find the best solution for their company’s mission.” Julie Scott, Wichita State University Office of Financial Aid

I also have to mention that it’s been very entertaining and that helps tremendously in easing the learning process.
