Excellent Course. After 15 Years of experience in Project Management, this course was an eye opener for me to understand the technical facts - Project Life Cycles, The Tools and understanding more about the Roles & Responsibilities of a Project Manager. If you love to take responsibilities leading groups on common tasks, you should do this...

Very easy to understand and follow. The instructor and speakers provided concise explanations and used layman-friendly terminologies to make the learning much easier than it actually is.

I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience! For those still on the fence wondering if you should enrol, my advice is to think no more and sign up to see for yourself!

I'm glad I decided to try the course. Halfway through the first module, I discovered that project management is not something I'm interested in. However, I do think this is an excellent course. It's presented in a very engaging way that's easy and fun to learn. I may revisit the course in the future if I ever need training in project management skills.

The course is easy to understand, teacher uses the examples which can be found in our daily life, and that truly enhances the knowledge of the lessons. The course is also well-designed, it gives us the basic and overall understanding about Project Management, step by step, with this program, I can already picture myself in working as a Project Manager.

Ce cours est à la théorique et pratique. Il m'a permis de matérialiser les notions apprises dans un contexte de gestion de projet réel. Le partage d'expériences des professionnels de la gestion de projet et les commentaires des pairs ont été d'une grande richesse. Je peux déjà appliquer ces connaissances apprises jusqu'ici dans mes projets personnels.

Curso muito refinado extremamente fácil de entender, até pra que não tem o inglês fluente, da pra traduzir normalmente. Fala muito sobre metodologias de gerência de projetos, fala sobre ciclo de vida de projetos, culturas de empresas, dicas para arrumar um novo emprego na área, exemplos de casos de sucesso enfim da pra aplicar tudo o que foi passado.

This course has taught me new skills that I am able to apply in any type of project that I encounter. The course was spread out enough to be able to tackle with a full time work schedule. The mix of videos, reading material and interactive questions made it easier to digest. I am looking forward to applying these skills into my current sales position.

In the past, I had experience with project management so I thought this course - Foundations of Project management was unessessary. However, I realized that I was totally wrong. I get understanding deeply about project management, what the responsiblities of PM, how to add value to the team....Thanks for creating an amazing course for someone like me.

This course(a part of the 6-course Project Management Certification) is a good introductory course on Project Management. Despite being an introductory course, it provides us with sufficient amount of details and key terms and concepts in the domain. Really loved the course! Looking forward to completing the remaining courses in the certificate soon!

I enjoyed this course. The videos were brief and to the point with great follow up notes. It allowed me to stay focused and be able to do segments with limited available time. It was eye opening to learn about different organizational structures and particularly the role of project managers in change management. I cannot wait to do the next course.

This course is an eye opener and a good foundation to build upon in becoming a Project Manager and earning the Professional Certifcate of Google as a Project Manager.

It keeps you alert and curious to know the next step without getting bored for a second.

The course is very thorough and very relevant to beginners in the area like me. I recommend it 100% to management professionals from any area who are looking to gain a lot of insight in their daily practice as it gives us a theoretical understanding of how we are always applying PM skills and knowledge on a regular basis without even knowing that.

The course enables to get quite broad overview about a role of project manager, required skills for the job, companies structure and hierarchy, it gives as well some tips how to pass an interview and understand if you fit for the position. It is a good quality course with a lot of valuable information in spite of introductory goal. Highly recommend

Very good course for setting a foundations for Project Management, just like the title says. I liked the instructor, the way he spoke is really good and of high quality, with nice pronunciation so I was able to listen even at a faster rate. This course really scratched a surface of the Project Management in a good way and I can't wait to continue.

I like the way the course is organized and keeps the learner engaged. I especially appreciate being able to read along with the video transcripts. A few unnecessarily tricky questions, but overall I feel that I have been able to connect with my past and current experiences and have learned a lot. Looking forward to the next courses in the series!

Everything was very well laid out and the instructor/guests were great. Love the option to follow along with text at the bottom and highlight for notes.

Some technical issues. Some writing prompts gave me error messages when trying to submit, also had a glitch where text would copy and paste itself while I was typing and would not let me erase it.
