Very informative. Did not realize there was more in order to get the certificate. Need to be more transparent with the actual course agenda and allow for a less controlled way to get thru the courses.

This is an excellent resource for newcomers and professionals alike. The structure of the lessons are quite good with enough variety to keep you interested and a higher chance of retaining the knowledge gained via quizzes and activities. If you want to get to know about the foundations of Project Management and what its impacts are in every organization then don't hesitate to give it a Go!

This course was extremely insightful and helpful in launching my career direction into a project management, specifically in design. As a designer, a ton of these principles are baked into the everyday work of a creative professional, and the information helped me to tease out all the management skills I had developed over the years. I am super excited to continue this certificate program.

I found this course to be a great introduction for someone with no previous knowledge in the field of Project Management. I personally learned a lot of new concepts with this course. The instructor is great at explaining these new concepts and giving relatable and easy-to-remember examples. I found it very rewarding and I am excited to continue on my journey to becoming a Project Manager.

I took this course at another institution and I have to say I learned more from Coursera's Google Foundations of Project Management course. This course was easy to understand and the examples were on point with what was being taught. I am so happy I decided to take this course. Thank you Google for the opportunity to learn from the employees at your organization. On to the next course.

I'm a project/PMO Leader with 20+ years experience. I did this course because I was trying to find a new training approach for new starters in my team. Great course, well explained. I especially like the focus on culture and org design. I also like the process agnostic approach - too many new PMs only believe there is one 'right way' that they learned on a Scrum-Master or Prince2 course.

The Google s educational program has ideias, principles, processes, and values that prepare us for the challenges of management near future.

A "Watterfall" of knowledge, this course is extemelly very well developed, with a suitability and integrity of a universe of industries, corporations and organizations.

A breath of fresh pinewood forest air in the educational landscape.

This is a great course. It provides better understanding of Project Management concepts and helps better understand the PM profession. The course is easy and interesting to navigate and easy to follow. I have finished it in 4 days, spending 2-3 hours a day. I recoment it to those who are looking for PM specialization or simply want to better understand Project Management Specialization.

Informative, thorough and masterfully crafted to cover every corner of the first steps in the world of Project Management. It is rich of exercises and interviews with professionals to provide the best insight over this world. A must- study for everybody, even those not interested in becoming project managers, as the skills being taught are really horizontal and useful to any profession.

Hi, I have took the 1st course of my project management. And I found very informative and usefull. Every thing in the course was well organised and explained. It would be also good to provide a cheatsheet summarising all of the information provided throughout the course (i.e. after the course is completed by the individual) in addition to the Gloassary. Kind regards, Hossein Afshari

The course is closer to Agile and its practices so it gives a very general overview of the basics of project management and doesn't dive in too deep on the traditional project management and its practices.

But this is a good course with great insights by people who are actually doing the work and in the field, and it's especially useful for people who want to work in project management.

This course was informative and gave very good insights about Project Management, Project Managers, the Skills of a Project Manager, different styles, Organisational culture, etc. It gave me a good, very good foundation to become as a Project Management in the future. The course was much interesting and engaging, and so I completed this course in a continuous streak, less than a week.

The course was great! I learned a great deal. The activities really brought the courses to life in the real world. I enjoyed doing the activities based on reality. It was very interesting to grade other student and observe how they handled the same tasks differently. I don't; however, find the CareerCircle and Google Job Platform helpful. No jobs have been sent my way. Dissapointing.

I really enjoyed this course! It was a lot of information, but the presentation of the learning material made it easy to digest. It was not overwhelming, and I appreciated that everything was introduced in a way that catered to all learning types. Some reading, some videos, and interactive components as well. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in project management.

I have been in the non-profit workforce for almost 30 years and I learned a lot during this course about the role of project management. It made me reflect on my organization, our leadership structure, how decisions are made. The course was also validating for the work that I do. I feel like I am going to learn different tools and skills that can enhance what I am already doing.

This online course gives each individual their own choice on how to approach their learning experience, how the process information and time to build a system of learning that works for them. It gives the foundational information and introduction into how to create, manage, best practices to follow. It gave very detailed information and made it easy to understand the coursework.

This was an excellent course for beginners who are interested in project management. From Emilio, the teacher/narrator, who took time to explain everything in layman terms, study materials that were amazing, resources for further learning, to fun quizes (seriously, how did you make a quiz sound fun?!), I thoroughly enjoyed this course, and hope that all the others did / will too!

My entire journey through the project management foundation course has been a learning experience for me, and I have gained insight and a better understanding of the impact and role of a project manager. Yes, I had already started a project before I began the program. However, thanks to the foundation course, I was able to reassess my team and more effectively handle daily tasks.

Just want to appreciate Google for creating this very informative and fundamental guide for aspiring project managers. Being a generalist, the terms used here are not new to me but I always struggle to put what I do into an job identity I can identify with. This course has provided me with much clarity in the development of my career and how I can better work with my colleagues.

If anyone asks me how you got interested in project management, I'll tell them about this course. simple, clear, and great. even a 4th standard kid can understand this course pretty well. This course not only helps you to explore the field of project management but also adds weight to your CV. Thanks, Coursera for providing financial aid to complete this course in my hard times.

An excellent course for solidifying your already existent PM skills, it's also good for anyone starting out the project management path. The skills and resources shared are amazing as well as the opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts with fellow class mates through optional discussions. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in project management.

The course clearly explains the foundations in a straight-forward, easy to digest way. The videos and the content are very informative and encouraging. The various speakers in the videos for this course were engaging. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to understand the basics of project management and what a project manager's roles and responsibilities entail.

This is an excellent entry level guide that applies the foundations of project management to your past, current, and future experience. Even one who has years of practical project management experience in the workforce can update, learn, and apply new techniques, methods, and thoughtful tactics into their management style. I think every project manager should take this course.

This course allowed me to have a good knowledge of basics of project management, and meet good practice. I must say that some of the concepts I applied  before without knowing the names. I can say also that from the first day of the course I have been putting into practice the knowledge acquired here and feel very encouraged to advise those who have not yet made to do so.

Very clear and well organzied course. The content was engaging, covered foundational elements and had a strong focus on how to prepare to use the education here in the job search process and defining what you are looking for in a [new] Project Management role. I was really impressed with this course. I am looking forward to the rest of the courses in the Certificate program.
