“My apologies for getting back at such a late date regarding your Problem Solving Course.
My feedback and comments are all positive. I was surprised to see the amount of information given in the participants manual. Thank you! It never fails that I need to add information into the participant manual.
I also was glad to see the increased amount of participant activities. Participants want to be involved more in exploring the skills being transferred – this course provides more activities. I can see how many of the activities provided can be used in group settings to increase participant transfer of knowledge.
Over all, this product is great. It allows for customization toward everyone’s own use while allowing the trainer to maintain the core knowledge of information to be taught in a clear and concise manner.
Thank you and great job.”

“I had a careful look over your course in problem solving skills program. For the record, I’ve been facilitating this course for the last 5 years in a lot of companies – telecomm, banking, oil & gas, FMCG, pharmaceutical, etc. SO, I could match the content of your training with the actual needs and problems raised by the participants.
So, it is a well-structured program, covering the most important aspects of the problem solving process, giving a strong mindset oriented towards creating a positive attitude and a proactive culture within the company.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to express my learning experience for the course by Oak. Its one of the best courses I have gone through on the mentioned subject. I really enjoyed the way, methodology and the contents of the course. The course contents are enriched with the practical exercises, examples, problem solving models and key definitions. It also puts flash on further reading, materials and books to be consulted for in-depth exposure of the subjected topic. Hence I strongly recommend this course to the professionals of various sectors of the industries because it will enable and upgrade them from ordinary level of skills to breakthrough level of skills. Professionals will not only enhance their knowledge but also save time and money in reaching the effective and efficient solutions of their particular problems in their industry.”
