This is the second course in the Google Project Management Certificate program. This course will show you how to set a project up for success in the first phase of the project life cycle: the project initiation phase. In exploring the key components of this phase, you’ll learn how to define and manage project goals, deliverables, scope, and success criteria. You’ll discover how to use tools and templates like stakeholder analysis grids and project charters to help you set project expectations and communicate roles and responsibilities. Current Google project managers will continue to instruct and provide you with hands-on approaches for accomplishing these tasks while showing you the best project management tools and resources for the job at hand.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PROJECT INITIATION: STARTING A SUCCESSFUL PROJECT
Great course, lots of information! Just wish there were more practice problems in regards to the tools we learned about, as well as a section focusing on how to prepare for interview questions.
Great presentation, very useful pieces of information and charts. Different ways to answer important questions. Creating project goals, scopes, and presentations. Collaboration with different tools.
The course was simple and easy to learn.
It would have been nice if it included a little more video session about the one of the popular Project Management software like Jira or Basemecamp.
I understand the appropriateness of the peer review activities, but I'm not a fan of them. I graded several assignments for others but initially had difficulty getting anyone to reciprocate.
