Some of our Clients


My biggest concern, prior to the training, was the usefulness or applicability of TOGAF®, because many training courses and frameworks instill a good feeling, but afterwards applying the ideas turns out to be very difficult. During the first day of the training I realized that TOGAF® is not only a framework, but it also provides guidelines and techniques that help to implement TOGAF® in practice. The soft copy of the material includes the book, slide sets, various study aids, use cases and perhaps most importantly templates of the deliverables. This material is extremely useful and really makes a big difference when applying TOGAF®. Steve conducted the training using the experience and strong competence he possesses. Although at times it is hard to absorb the huge amount of information, Steve made it easier by focusing on the important topics. Steve runs repetitions of key TOGAF® points so many times that it starts to stick. With the use cases and comparisons to other frameworks, Steve helped to clarify the position TOGAF® and at the same time made the learning process easier. Thanks to Steve's thorough guidance it was possible to pass both exams in 2 weeks time after the training.
