This section had a lot of information ! So much that it can help you narrow down which Agile framework could be worth taking a deeper dive into in the near future to support your career path.

Part of being a project manager is reviewing your team's work. If you really want to instill growth,confidence and establish trust within your team, I would suggest not glossing over those sections where you have the opportunity to share/provide feedback on peer assignments. Squeeze in as much practice as you can.

It's hard to get other people excited about working with you if you don't put yourself out there!

For Agile means flexibility or agility, and in project management it means the ability to move lightly and quickly and move from one state to another quickly in response to variables. In the world of project management: Ajil is a methodology (method) for managing software and non-software projects that focuses on building a product in several stages and with short periods of time, and each stage generates a product distinct from the previous one with additional characteristics. This (phased) product is a real product that the customer (customer) can interact with.

This was a very interesting course. I have learnt many concepts and methods that should be used if you want to become an effective and efficient Project Manager. I can confidently state that I am able to identify problems and come up with solutions that will enhance any project that I manage. Agile Project Management values, principles and frameworks is well established to be applied to any industry and this is very commendable. This is a concept i will continue to practice in any Project Management task that i'm required to undertake.

I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to study and grasp the concepts of Agile. It has been precious and enlightening as someone with years of experience in construction projects. The exceptional teaching style and straightforward concepts blew me away! The course instructor communicated everything so clearly and with such high quality. To top it off, the guest speakers in the training program were incredibly influential in sharing their experiences. It was all so impressive! The program was also highly effective.

I really enjoyed the instructor on this course. She was incredibly detailed and still managed to make the information usable with so many real life anecdotes intertwined throughout. I also really enjoyed the integration of using Asana for some of the assignments in order to gain some good experience using that tool. I do think that it would be more helpful to have the glossary of terms for each course be part of Week 1 so that it can serve as a reference throughout without having to go back to the resources page.

The Google Project Management Certification program as a whole has been very useful in my journey to become a Certified Project Manager. Every course unfolds new information needed to succeed in a project management role. I am grateful for loaning myself the courage to get on this journey. Thank you to all the instructors who have given me a broader perspective of this course field. I look forward to the final course in this program and landing a Job role in the IT, Oil and Energy, Pharmaceutical or Beauty industry.

[QUOTE]The second we determine a system to be “done” is the second it begins its descent into irrelevance. Ask yourself, “When is Netflix or Google done?,” and you start to get a sense of the growing irrelevance of the concept of a finished project. And without a target end state, traditional project management tools such as Gantt charts, fixed budgets, or strict roadmaps are not only impossible to implement — they’re a waste of time. - Jeff Gothelf #projectmanagement #agileprojectmanagement #scrummaster

The course was extremely enlightening, and it provides a wealth of concepts that are essential to comprehending agile project management. The instructor demonstrated that she had a substantial amount of knowledge and experience in the application of agile methods for managing projects. The activities during week 3 proved to be quite difficult for me because there were so many activities. Despite this, it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

I have worked in the project space (with NGOs and Public Sector) for a almost a decade now, however I practiced more of a waterfall methodology. I wanted to upgrade my knowledge, to expose myself to PM opportunities within the IT sector. This course exceeded my expectation in providing robust information on project management in an Agile environment, incorporating handson experiences that allowed practice for better understanding of the process. Very well done!

It has been an immensely valuable learning journey, and I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of it. Your guidance and instruction have been truly inspiring, and I cannot thank you enough for sharing your knowledge with such passion and dedication. Your enthusiasm has made this course even more engaging and enjoyable. Thank you once again for all that you have done to make this a truly remarkable learning experience.

This course gives a very good hands on understanding of Agile concept. Many times theory, when unpracticed is forgotten. I really liked the way the exercises were designed to make the participant think and apply the principles and techniques. Even though I had used Asana in the past for project tracking, I had not done a Sprint and product backlog until I learnt them in this course. Overall i found this course quite illuminating and useful. Thank you.

My Agile Project Management course instructor, Sue, from Google, did an excellent job of making the Agile frameworks & methodologies relatable. The videos, explanations, reading material, and examples throughout this course are all designed to help understand that Agile is a mindset with the customers & teams at its core.

I highly recommend this course. Well done Google for bring this informative and useful Agile Project Management course to life!

Great course, the content and pace is very easy to keep up with while learning a lot and doing fairly in-depth in Agile with a focus on Scrum. Completed this course in about a week just by dedicating about 2 hours a day, could've done it even sooner had my schedule been more laxed or dedicating more hours. Highly recommend for anyone looking to add Agile/Scrum under their belt or get foundations for a career in Agile/Scrum project management itself.

This is a great course for me. It's a great start for anyone with no knowledge to get their feet on Project Management. I loved the quiz, assessments and other tests. I can recommend this course to anyone because they were thought by experts on the subject matter which will give you an overview of what it means to be a project manager or taking the role of a project manager and quickly understand what people are referring to and talking about.

Very well structured course giving clear overview and explanations about the Agile approach and related methodologies. The quizz along the course allow testing the knowledge acquired and the exercises allow an introduction to some techniques and tools, this aspect could be a little bit more challenging. Great instructor and course overall!

Looking forward to a comparable Google Professional Certificate regarding Software Product Development.

It was a very nice course. The content is really well distributed and connected, making sense begging to the very end. The quizzes and readings were super interesting. It was very helpful for me the pop-up questions during the videos and the constant assignments to assess how I was following and incorporating the content. Lastly, the practical activities were nicely planned and explained, putting me to face situations I deal with every day.

Agile was a rich course, full of guidance, advice, opportuinties for learning and growth. I so loved that the course included different types of practices, scenarios. From a mock intervieiw to creating documents. The avaialbility of the templates is amazing in the thought that I do not have to create them on my own. Lastly, I appreciated being able to work on Plant Plas, Office Green and Virtual Verde across all of the courses.

Excellent course on Agile Project Management. The learning process was very engaging with a clear presentation, interactive questions, and practice quiz. I am traditional project management professional, and this course helped me understand how to integrate the agile processes in the working environments.

I thank Google for providing a quality learning experience and Coursera for an excellent platform enabling me to access it.

Agile Project Management provided by Google is something I've expected to know from the things I've learn from videos and websites but their approach on teaching and showing more knowledge has allow me to get better understanding of the methodology and its frameworks used in a working environment. Activities are graded by people so that's a plus; highly recommend it to people who have a passion for Agile project management.

Fantastic course !!! I had attempted to understand Agile Project management on my own before -unsuccessfully. This course explained the concepts and thought processes that go into this management style, as well as how to apply Agile in an organization. Also the course spends a significant amount of time with Scrum and what makes up a Scrum team, how that team works through the project process as well as useful tools.

The specializtion is well planned and is an excellent source of information and preparation for becoming a PMP, whether in raditional project management or newer agile frameworks, the specialization does a great job teaching practical knowlege and letting you practice new skills. This course on Agile Project Management in particular had a lot of work associated with it, but its a great intoduction to Agile and Scrum.

Amazing! It's so well designed that learning is inevitable, you can't escape it. Sounds exaggerated? Well, not exactly. My point is, the traditional ways of class-room teaching should evolve and incorporate many methods from these programs. I am going to pick another one very soon, I hope that one will equally be exciting and full of learning. Thanks to Coursera, the instructors and the whole team behind the program.

The Agile Project Management course offered by Google is challenging, but has a lot of information that is useful for those working in and interested in project management. The agile piece is especially important at this time because that is where a lot of companies and organizations are headed when it comes to projects. I would definitely recommend this course for the learning materials and information available.

Agile Project Management Course is not only self paced but essential to understand and even refresh your agile skills with a modern take and deep understanding.

I would have love more interactions and examples. Like a quick live of a retrospective or more tips on ice breakers in a new team.

I did like how detailed the course was and the quizzes that you take to verify knowledge. I highly recommend the course.
