Improving Operational Performance in Marketing Departments

I have participated with great interest in the training course on how to improve operational performance in marketing departments, delivered by Acumen Integrat, in Cluj-Napoca. This course has fully met my expectations, which were really high. I have appreciated the quality of the information provided, the way in which the course was structured and delivered, the quality of the course materials we received at the end of the program (which support the knowledge acquired and practiced throughout the training sessions). In addition to this, I have also found productive the exchange of information among participants.
The communication process for the participation in this training course was extremely professional, and so was the manner in which it was organized. I fully recommend this program, which I believe will provide a great amount of new information for the Romanian market. Moreover, I know that the team that is delivering this course has the required professional experience.

If you are constantly concerned to measure how marketing contributes to the company’s results, this is the training course you should attend. Here you will find the tools that will enable you to improve the performance of your department and accurately evaluate it.

Rada Teioșanu, Marketing Manager, Brinel

I have participated in this course out of pure curiosity to learn which are the topics discussed in such a training course. My expectations regarding the information provided were very low. However, I was impressed. The tools provided will help me a lot in my activity.

KPIs: Measurement, Learning and Optimization

Performance Management is a delicate topic for Romanian organizations, and, in my opinion, the practices leave a lot to be desired. This is why the “KPIs: Measurement, Learning and Optimization” training course was extremely useful to me, mainly because it was very well structured both in terms of the theoretical aspects presented and the exercises discussed. Aurel’s experience was of great importance, and the fact that he is not a trainer, but a practitioner in the field, possessing a solid performance management know-how added value to this program. In addition to this, the customized tools presented during the training sessions is another benefit of participating in this course, as these can help participants in implementing a performance management system within their organizations. I would like to thank you for this training course, and I am looking forward to participate in other events that focus on further developing the competences acquired by attending this course.

Ileana Amaximoaie, Training and Development Manager, GDF SUEZ Energy

Despite leaving at first the impression that it is a highly specialized training course, during the training sessions we were introduced to the way we carry out our everyday organizational operations from a new perspective: the performance of our activities and the levers to improve it. As a well prepared and experienced trainer, Aurel introduced the topics in a clear and logic manner! I am looking forward to the next training program!

Cristina Bleoca, Operations Manager, Heiring Impex

I can truly say that the “Key Performance Indicators – Measurement, Learning, Optimization” course was well documented and well delivered. Moreover, it was supported by exercises and relevant examples from practice. What I liked most was the follow-up, as the team delivering the course was there to help you with information and details that required further documentation, even after the termination of the course. Last but not least, compared to other training courses where participants only receive a basic course material, the Acumen Integrat team made sure that all participants benefited from various ready-to-use templates and course materials.

Mihaela Melenciuc, Recruitment, Assessment and Engagement Manager, Adrem Invest

Even before participating in this training course, I have appreciated the interest in setting the objectives of the course and selecting the course materials based on the specific needs of our team. During the training, I was impressed by how easy it was to understand concepts such as Performance Dashboard, Performance Management System and Balanced Scorecard. Not to mention the examples from practice, which were provided.
The way in which the facilitator delivered the training engaged participants in group discussions on best practices regarding key theoretical aspects and generated many opportunities of working with KPIs in practice. Moreover, the feedback received from other participants emphasized the applied character of the course and the openness of the facilitator. I look forward to our future collaborations.

Cristina Botea, Head of Planning & Performance Monitoring, HSSE Department, OMV Petrom

The “KPIs: Measurement, Learning and Optimization” training course, organized by Acumen Integrat, was the definition of competence and professionalism based on the overall understanding of the performance management system with all its components.
This training course represents the perfect balance between theoretical aspects and practice. It has managed to raise questions and challenges even for a performance management specialist. The gradual presentation of information and case studies, in various stages of the training program, is the most important aspect of this course for every participant.
If I were to use a KPI in order to resume the quality/quantity of this course, that would be ROI (Return On Investment). I have acquired new knowledge in the field which can be implemented in my everyday activities, and even in my future actions.

Nicoleta Pulbere, Performance Manager – Continual Service Improvement, IT Global Solutions, OMV Petrom

This course attained its goal as it was supported by the trainer’s great practical and teaching experience, using interactive training methods.
