What people are saying about Project Portfolio Management Essentials?

"Great content at an amazing price
I have been working through the PPM course materials as a way of evaluating areas we can improve our own performance. Having worked in the technology project space space for almost 20 years I can say this is the best PPM knowledgebase I have found and at an almost unbelievable price"
"A must for anyone involved in project management
Not only does this course provide all the information needed for managing a portfolio of projects, but it was a fantastic surprise to find that I also got access to some extremely useful Excel spreadsheets that make project portfolio management so much simpler.
I thought the information was well structured and very practical. I've already started using the excel spreadsheets and knowledge to manage the project portfolio in the IT department that I manage and have already used the knowledge gained in the "Triage" lecture to make sense of our existing project challenges and what we need to do about them. 
For the price of an average management book, this is an absolute bargain. Highly recommended."
