Still have questions?

Let's try to answer them!

1. Could I find this information for free online?

One of the reasons I created this course is because there is SO MUCH unconnected information online and scattered in several books.

Think about the time you’ll save by not having to dig through books, old blog posts and implement disconnected strategies, just to – maybe – find something that kind of works.

2. Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?

Not sure if Foundations is right for you? Well, I’ll give you TWO FULL WEEKS to try it out. If you reach out to me within 14 days after enrolment to let me know that the program isn’t working for you, I’ll happily give you a full refund.

Yeah, it might take a few weeks or months longer to lay the groundwork, but you’ve got to do that anyway, right? You might as well do it right the first time.

5. What if I'm NOT a beginner? I have an idea of what PLM is already...will this course help me as well?

Actually, yes! If you want a clear path to bring PLM to action, this is your course.
