This course is very insightful. Most likely you've already been doing all these things but didn't know the right terminology for it all. I love this course and can't wait to complete the rest.

I learned how much I already knew. By having it quantified to PM terms, I feel confident in doing the other courses. I'm simply learning a language for a skillset I've already been enacting.
