„I can truly say that the “Key Performance Indicators – Measurement, Learning, Optimization” course was well documented and well delivered. Moreover, it was also supported by exercises and relevant examples from practice. What I liked most was the follow-up, as the team that delivered the course was there to help you with information and details that required further documentation, even after the termination of the course. In addition to this, compared to other courses where you receive a basic course material, Acumen Integrat made sure that participants benefited from a series of ready-to-use templates in a practical and complex manner.
