I like this course a lot. The presenter is pleasant and concise. The information presented was also great, with many different concepts of project management that I have never considered. Best of all, I liked how the course took the time to talk about things of interest to job seekers. There are many different project management roles that I have never considered as well.

I learned what program management is all about, the roles and responsibilities of project manager and the skills required. The best part of it, communication and escalation to ensure all informations are delivered across the organization effectively.

I think it is a great short and concise course for people who would like to gain quick knowledge about project management.

Great intro, the content was easy to digest and really laid the path forward well. One issue I did have was not with the content, but the videos would end 30 seconds or so early. I would need to scroll to the bottom of the page and take notes from the transcript since the video would not play that portion even if I attempted to begin the video within the last 30 seconds.

This course was very helpful in understanding the basics of project management. While I already knew some of the material, it was a good refresher and great way to think about the priniciples from a Google point of view and in a different manner that I had learned. The blended learning keeps you interested and engaged. The instructor was great as well! Thanks so much.

Regardless of your level of expertise or future career prospects, I think this course serves well as an explanation and foundation towards further understanding project management. Even if one does not aspire to work in this area, I would highly recommend this course to better understand what others may be doing in their day-to-day, and how their work may impact yours.

I found this course to be very informative and helpful. Most of us have a general idea of what project management means, but this course really explains the nuances of project management. I would highly recommend it to anyone who, like myself, often hears the term 'project management' and wonders what's so special about it? This course explains why PM is so important.

I learned good planning at work and learned how to develop my skills and how to participate with colleagues and the culture of dealing with companies and how to know the organizational structure of companies and know good planning before entering the project and I want to add something I learned is that I plan well for my life and plan well in anything related to work

Me gusto el curso para entender lo básico e lo mas complejo de gestión de proyectos, mi critica va a orientada a revisar los videos y contenidos a ingles e por ello me es un poco dificultoso e demoro en desarrollar las sesiones ya que tengo que hacer un análisis e traducir los videos pero me gusta que tenga sus traducciones de Google por ello no tengo esa dificultad.

It was an amazing journey! I really recommend to those that have interest in organizing events or programs because it can give you a big picture on how to do it with proper knowledge. Trust me, before I join this course, my events were successful but the process throughout the events were totally messed up! So here I am, wanting to learn more about project management.

They made the course so easy to understand !!

The study materials , Instructors, methodology , assignments, course contents , pic quality of videos ,option in videos , interface, page instructions ,additional links in between all are superb .

The word 'Excellent' is probably an under adjective to describe the quality of the course .

Thank you Coursera .Thank you Google

I was really surprised in particular "The life cycle of a project" That knowledge changed my life, it helped me to organize works and things of my personal life and really finish every task that I have proposed. Honestly, the Project Manager career is a tremendous skill that can be learned and that can lead you to not only a good job, but to be happier in your life.

The first two weeks of the course picked up slow because they had to share the basics. It was slow for me because I was already familiar with project management. But BOY! It picked up in Weeks 3 and 4. I learned SO much and found the exercises to be insightful.

My recommendation is to take plenty of notes because you will need to return to this information one day.

A complete and essential course for those who wish to boost their career and particularly have never had contact with project management.

Week 3 is a must, approaching Project Life Cycle and its breakdown concisely and objectively.

| 1, Iniatiate | 2, Make a Plan | 3, Execute & Complete Tasks | 4, Close |

Really enjoyed attending Emilio´s classes!

I highly recommend!

I feel greatly privileged to have been part of this course. The instructor was refreshing and very helpful with his explanations and mannerisms in describing concepts. Listening to stories from other project and program managers at Google was also very great. I look forward to more and also using the skills I have learned and worked on in my future career pursuit.

The course provides skills, knowledge that you can immediately use.

I found the presentations to be very professional and engaging. They very much encourage you to consider the importance and value project management brings to an organisation. Indeed, I find myself applying the nuggets of information to ongoing projects in my own workplace.

Its highly recommended.

Si è rivelato MOLTO interessante e utile, anche se io già lavoro stabilmente in una organizzazione nella quale ho maturato gran parte delle esperienze che ho potuto riscontrare nel corso, il quale mi ha fornito spunti di riflessione, catalogazione, ordine e workflow corretti per poter inquadrare e sviluppare le competenze per svolgere semrpe meglio il ruolo di PM
