What Our Customers Say:

State of New Mexico CYFD

“We recognized a gap within our organization in terms of how we managed our technology related projects. In addition to schedule delays and quality concerns, there was tension between IT and our internal business partners. We reached out to UNM Continuing Education for basic project management training and they not only proposed a solid training plan, but they also customized the training to tailor the content and structure to our unique business needs and provided follow up consulting to help us implement the concepts and practices learned from the training. Our project success metrics have significantly improved and because they also suggested that we conduct the training with both IT staff and our internal subject matter experts together, our team work and internal coordination has improved as well. We are very satisfied with their work and are in the process of defining additional training in the areas of business analysis and strategic planning.”
