Fistral Training & Development News

Space sector staff say – “Best spent training time in quite a while. Not that the other trainings were not good (they were excellent too) this was just outstanding.”

A recent Project Management Principles Level 1 course held at ESTEC was given excellent feedback and ratings by staff working in the European Space Agency.

Given a 4.60 out of 5 overall (5 being Excellent), the Top 5 comments from this session were:

  1. “Wish I had had this training three years ago when had my first managerial experience!”
  2. “​Dynamic exercises with the active participation of the trainees improved significantly the experience during the course.”
  3. “Appropriate and well managed.”
  4. “Very useful to test the different techniques explained.”
  5. “Best spent training time in quite a while. Not that the other trainings were not good (they were excellent too) this was just outstanding.”

100% of ESA staff said they would recommend our PM training to colleagues, specifically:

  • “Yes TOs, line managers, project managers.”
  • “Yes, most of the engineering / managing areas as it is general project management overview.”
  • “YES, in particular for engineers participating to large projects (for instance where the project manager delegates part of his tasks to his technical managers and engineers, or ask them to contribute to project.”
  • “Yes, in particular in my application field as TO for R&D activities, especially in the preparation/planning phase.”
  • “To colleague who wants to get management positions.”
  • “Absolutely to anyone having to manage a team or a ‘project’.”

And the trainer was specifically highlighted by one participant:

  • “To my mind, [the trainer] is an excellent speaker for this course. He has a very good knowledge of the subject, and he provides a good balance of theoretical explanations and practical exercises. Also, I find that the general atmosphere during the course has been very good thanks to his way of leading the course and his attention to adapt his leadership to the specific characteristics of the group.”
