Once in a while I attend training program in our organisation that is so encouraging that it makes time away from my core job worth while. It should have focus group session to solve the real problem caused by organisation.

Well structured cources. What was most interesting was the real life cause studies that Dr. Sunil related to different concepts. Most courses step at teaching new tools. However this one facilated stakeholder management which makes it very practical.
