According to David Pells, PMWL managing director, “Yusuf was very active, researching various project management education and technology topics, providing new resources for the library at least once per week.  He often submitted multiple research results.”

Yusuf stated, “I am very interested in project management, so this research internship was both interesting and useful.  My professors liked the idea and I’ve learned a lot about project management around the world, just by exploring the pm world library.  I appreciate this opportunity.”

Pells added, “We are gaining more readers and library members in Nigeria, partially due to Mr. Olawale’s efforts.  He identified project management programs at several Nigerian universities, about which most people in the world knew nothing.  We thank him for his research and great contributions.”
