Loved this course. The instructor makes this course what it is. Lessons and terms are great, but real world applications are necessary to help you learn to practice your newly acquired skills.

Like the first (Initiating and Planning Projects) and second (Budgeting and Scheduling Projects) as part of the Project Management specialization offered by UCI, this was the final course I took before I got the chance to do the Capstone Project. As a relatively new project manager, I have always been worried about the risks and changes of each project that I handle. I tend to forget to do mitigation and contingency plans that's why there were times the projects go beyond scope and my team experienced scope creep. Taking this course taught me a lot and gave me hope that I can still improve as a project manager. I learned different processes (e.g. change control process, risk register, etc.) that should be involved in projects in order for projects to succeed. To UCI and Ms. Meloni, thank you very much for having this course!

Great course. Loved the bonus videos/lesson as well as the panelist interview. Thanks a lot for sharing all the insights and pitfalls to avoid. Highly recommend this course/specialization. Awesome course structure that starts with lecture, followed by lesson with more detailed explanations, then case study with optional reading, followed by exercise to reinforce that we practice what we just learned, then quizzes/final exams. Then my favorite part, the bonus video/panelist interview that shares with us the step by step process or pitfalls to avoid.

Good , clear, information and very explicit videos.

Any one planning to move in the direction of a Project Management career, should do this course, Although I would recommend as many persons as possible to do it, because generally it is like a life guide for any area of work, it pushes you to be discipline in your decisions.

Risks are our everyday encounters and we need to be aware of them in every circumstances we flow into.

It was nice learning hoe to manage them and create ways how to over come them.

Thanks so much for all the endeavors.

Margaret's teaching style is effortlessly effective and the tenor of the sessions are practice-led, so it's presented as information in action, not theory and pedagogy. This is an outstanding course feature, in my op

Very informative! While risk management and scope change make up a small part of the project management process, they are some of the most important topics and are well covered in this class.

In the present business scenario the project needs bold decisions which are often engulfed with great quantum of risk. the evaluation of risk and mitigation was well expalined.
