"The course, New Gen P for Product Owners was a unique online delivery system of systematically and seamlessly flowing information that takes you through the ACHIEVE Product Ownership. I found the content easy for understanding and the templates were well designed for easy application of ideas learned in the modules. I have enjoyed my virtual and digital interaction with Joanna and Peter who have made the learning experience both fun and rewarding. I have also greatly benefited from reading the book, Gen P side by side along with completing the module templates which further allowed me to have a greater depth of understanding of the content with the pertinent examples provided in the book. I highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in lean processes, bringing agility and product ownership onboard into their organizations."

"Having read the book Gen P, New generation of Product Owners Who Care about Customers, and completing the online course, I found a balanced mix of content that was timely, insightful and actionable. I consider it as foundational for anyone in project management.
I would recommend to organizations who invest in their human capital, making NewGenP courses available to better equip their staff who are tasked to make a transformation happen, solve a stalled adoption or even maintaining stability after a change.
For me, having worn a Project Management Centre of Excellence hat responsible for building capability at CIBC, I looked for training to provide value and the competency lift I needed to demonstrate. It was important for me to secure relevant instructional content, tools & templates, with guidance and support to build upon the best practices and work standards that we established."

"I have been greatly benefited by the templates shared in "The Product Owner - New Gen P" course. The templates adapts a lean approach for product documentation and is easily understable by the technical and business personnel. Completing the course assisted me to gain new and unique perspectives on product management and applying the knowledge earned at my work eventually enabled me to step in as a product management adviser to my functional managers. The book itself is a great guide for the daily product management activities."
