Student Feedback

I ask for feedback on every course so I may continually improve my training offerings and gauge student satisfaction. Here are some examples from this specific course.

Hi Josh…I finished going through the WBS course today. Started yesterday and continued today. I am quite impressed. One of the clearest explanations of a WBS, how to create one, tools to use, etc. that I’ve read, watched or heard to date. Very well done. Will certainly revisit the ebook as needed. Thank you!

Thank you Josh for this course. It was really helpful to me. Especially when you can relate WBS theories out of your real life experiences, it makes it much more valuable.

Hi Josh, This course was extremely informative. I like your matter of fact narrative and also the helpful stand alone eBook for future reference. Great course on WBS Structure!
