Maurice trained our IT staff in project management. He is a very creative and effective instructor. His in-depth knowledge and deep experience in project management enabled him to speak to real life situations and make the training relevant. The staff loved him and came away from the course with useful skills. Given the opportunity, I would not hesitate to bring Maurice back for project management training and I would love to bring him in to manage a project for us.
Maurice facilitated learning programs for many of my clients to extremely positive reviews. He has strong knowledge of his subject matter and does a great job connecting with the students and making the content relate to their personal job functions. It was a privilege to work with Maurice, and hope to do so again in the future.
Maurice has a superb set of management and project management skills in his arsenal. He combines an excellent set of project management abilities/knowledge with an abundance of people skills that predictably lead to success. Maurice is intelligent, easy to work with, and is seen as a leader. His ability to manage the details combined with his “big picture” perspective is a winning combination.
Maurice is a focused leader with a clear vision for the future. When faced with a problem he instinctively knows when he needs to take quick action or if a thoughtful approach is more appropriate. During the years we worked together, he developed a high functioning team that created inventive solutions and delivered projects on time. A consummate collaborator; he inspired cross-functional teams to work together harmoniously. I’m proud to have worked with Maurice; he is a trusted business colleague whose sense of humor contributed to making work fun and enjoyable.
I've seen firsthand Maurice's incredible knowledge in the world of technology and business! I highly recommend working with him in these domains. During my engagement with him at a global company, I came to truly understand supply chain data visibility and management. Generous, insightful, and knowledgeable, are all the qualities that Maurice has beyond technology and information management.
Maurice taught a course on agile project management at my firm. He approached his subject with the authority of an SME but also with a good dose of pragmatism. He focused on items that you could take back to your desk. Maurice managed to get the class talking and discussing the details of the course from their personal experience leading to a really rich and rewarding class room experience. I would definitely recommend Maurice and search out other course he facilitates.
I attended an excellent course on Complex Project Management, which Maurice developed and taught. Maurce provided the students with fantastic tools and techniques to manage not only complex projects but also simple and complicated projects. I learned so much from Maurice that I am going into the office on Monday and implement a number of Maurice's suggestions, which I know will improve my project management style and increase the probability of project success. Thanks Maurice.
It was my pleasure to have Maurice lead our Complex Project Management course. The course, which Maurice authored, addressed all the relevant topics and was engaging throughout. Maurice provided personal examples as well as encouraged team participation in classroom activities. Maurice has an excellent command of all aspects of project management and is an excellent teacher. I highly recommend this course and Maurice as a trainer.
Maurice's training takes traditional Project Management to the next level. The tools and techniques in his course are relevant and sophisticated. They bring solid, engineering discipline to Program Management to drive substantive improvements in project performance. He is very familiar with current trends in academia and industry and offers real world examples of how to apply the techniques taught in the course. I would recommend this course to any Program Manager who wants to take their professional skills to the next level.
Maurice was able to teach Leadership skills like a true craftsman. His professional experience and lessons are very insightful for anyone wanting to learn more about how to be a good Leader. He is an expert in the subject area, yet teaches it at a very practical level. Great teacher, great communicator, great guy. Highly recommended.
Maurice was hired by my employer to train our organization on the Agile with Scrum framework. Over the course of this three-day training period, Maurice exhibited expert knowledge of not only the agile method but also the challenges of implementing what will be a revolutionary approach to technology project delivery for my organization. Further, Maurice substantiated the effectiveness of these methods with interesting and applicable real-world examples, research and anecdotes. As Maurice told us, Agile is not rocket science. However, Maurice ensured that our training sessions were relevant, beneficial and fun.
I would highly recommend Maurice as a trainer/instructor for your IT organization.
