So much information was packaged in this course but it was so well organized and delivered that I was compelled to complete every segment. Well timed quizzes helped to ensure my comprehension as well.

I​ learned more about project management in this course than I did in a full semester of a 400 level project mamagement course at my university. This course boils down weeks of useless information down to the actionable information that you need to know and can apply to projects right now.

The course was very thorough and touched all the topics necessary to get started in a Project Management role. The content was very well reviewed and explained by the instructor. The quiz was great way to revise the topics and the short videos with real PMs at Google was very helpful too.

The guide was amazing! He presented the information in a short and effective way that kept me in focus all the way, I like how the course is structured and it feels good to complete each video and see the complete mark on the side (made me want to complete more!) Thank you very much.

The course was great and comprehensive.

However i just felt it could have been made a little shorter/condensed as it is just a foundational course.

Though, it has helped me learn a lot. So from that point of view, I have not much concerns.

Thanks to all the instructors and coordinators.

This was a great introductory course! The course gets you set up and primed to fully understand the Project Management role within an organization, touches on basic principles for project management, and has very clear and direct assessments to establish retention of the information.

I suggest that the students could download a pdf organized with all the available reading material so we could eventually print from it. I had to organize all 91 activities using OneNote, which is great but sometimes a pdf guide (textbook) can be a better source of reading and study.

This was a really great course. Really well structured and with excellent presentations. I particularly liked the way current Project Managers from Google presented. Thought that the structure of the course has set me up for the rest of the specialisation really well. Very enjoyable!

I learned a lot and even I remember many concepts that I´ve already know. I just want to suggest if you can put more volume at the videos, sometimes I had to up all the volume system on my laptop. Anyway, was a great course, I taken notes of everything and I´m exited about the next.

The Foundations of Project Management course is a very interesting introduction to the world of Project Management. It is interesting to learn how much of Project Management I implement on a daily basis in my current management position and was not even aware that I was doing this.

Very comprehensive and well designed foundation course. I enjoyed several inputs and thoughts shared by Google team , their perspective and roles and responsibilities. It seems everyone is passionate and enjoy their responsibilities, interactions with people and delivery results.

The course has helped me to get a holistic view of what project management is and the related methodologies to be put in use. It covers the aspects of organisational structures and culture thereby focussing on real world applications to the subject matter. I highly recommend it!!
