The contents i very updated with recent knowledge in Best Practices for PM. It's more enjoyable if you do the other related courses; PM9001x and PM9002x. With this you could get a holistic knowledge on what Project Management is all about. I did PM9001x, and just finished PM9002x as a verified student. Can't wait to start PM9003x. Thank you the entire team for such a wonderful package. Great job guys!!

Best practices has been an excellent opportunity to learn about Project Managment in a different and broader scale. The OPM framework lessons has provided me with useful knowledge that i´m putting directly to work with my team and with the institution that I work for as a whole. In El Salvador institutional change is a matter of life and death and organization improvement and change managment is also very important for the same reasons. As far as I know there are very little OPM3 professionals in this country, though there are plenty of Professional Project Managers, there are no doubts to me that with this course we are going to make possible capacities improvement in strategy execution through Projects and Programs. RIT has all my respect and I´m very excited to get to finish the Micro-masters certificate, but it will be at 2018.
