"Overall, we loved the course. It was as described and a bit more and all were glad to have participated - and identify what work awaits for us ahead." A Business Architecture Manager in a large department at the Government of Canada
"The Business Architecture Course was comprehensive. The instructor was knowledgeable and very comfortable with the course content and the BIZBOK Guide itself. I loved that the class size was small enough to dedicate one-on-one instructor time throughout the course. The additional one on one workshop was also helpful as it assisted me in immediate application of the course material. I am certain it has given me the knowledge to pass the Business Architecture Certification." A business architecture practitioner at a provincial crown corporation
"Instructor’s presentation style and voice kept the riveting engagement for two days with this on-line course. Clear and concise information that presented complex concepts in an easy to follow pattern. Very experienced practical information from an instructor that demonstrated his depth of practical experience. Small number of students, pace and opportunities to ask questions made the course easy to follow and stay engaged. I would recommend the course for people to understand business architecture concepts or people who may have been practicing to understand where else they can take these skills. Now I have the information to take the exam and more importantly be an evangelist for business architecture within my organization." An Account Manager in an insurance division of one of the big 5 Canadian banks
"The course was really interesting and very informative. It has been an excellent way to learn more in depth about Business Architecture with a combination of theory and practical application of concepts. It has been really useful with detailed data and hands-on and even management of work has also been taught simultaneously helping in raising the BA practice maturity level. Style of training has been uplifting and stimulating along with excellent training manuals and presentation." Head of Enterprise Architecture Practice at a multinational shipping company in the Middle East
"With any online course training you have a 50/50 chance of it being engaging. The training delivered by Archist was not only engaging, but also incredibly useful.

"We really found the training useful and I am recommending that my two other staff attend the next public session." A Strategy & Innovation Director in one of the big 5 Canadian banks
"The course was incredibly helpful and the instructor was very engaging, both in his delivery and in response to our seemingly-never-ending questions. We had already been immersed in developing a business architecture for a large department in the federal government. While we felt we were creating valuable content as described in the BIZBOK, the course provided both confirmation and new insights into how we could improve our approach and document our results. You might be interested to know that we have been using that insight since the moment the course ended, with great success! While there is still a lot more we need to do to complete our business architecture journey with the department, I feel much more confident that we'll deliver a product of significant quality and great value; thanks to the Archist course and the instructor's delivery. I wish Archist great success and will certainly recommend you and your courses to anyone interested in pursuing business architecture." A seasoned Business Transformation Consultant in the Government of Canada

"Having used the BIZBOK as the basis for business architecture for a large government client for a year, I realized that there were gaps in my understanding of how all the pieces fit together. The two-day course filled in those gaps very well. The instructor delivered the material very well with terrific examples from his own work. As a contributor to the BIZBOK, he has a deep understanding of the BIZBOK and the nuances in applying the techniques. On top of that, he has a very good manner for delivering a course over the Web - just the right pace with a clear speaking voice. It was a very enjoyable two days." A seasoned consultant in the Government of Canada
