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.

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 course is an eye opener and a good foundation to build upon in becoming a Project Manager and earning the Professional Certifcate of Google as a Project Manager.

It keeps you alert and curious to know the next step without getting bored for a second.

It also enables you to think and reflect of the value addition you can bring to an organisation.

The course is very thorough and very relevant to beginners in the area like me. I recommend it 100% to management professionals from any area who are looking to gain a lot of insight in their daily practice as it gives us a theoretical understanding of how we are always applying PM skills and knowledge on a regular basis without even knowing that.

Very good course for setting a foundations for Project Management, just like the title says. I liked the instructor, the way he spoke is really good and of high quality, with nice pronunciation so I was able to listen even at a faster rate. This course really scratched a surface of the Project Management in a good way and I can't wait to continue.

I like the way the course is organized and keeps the learner engaged. I especially appreciate being able to read along with the video transcripts. A few unnecessarily tricky questions, but overall I feel that I have been able to connect with my past and current experiences and have learned a lot. Looking forward to the next courses in the series!

Everything was very well laid out and the instructor/guests were great. Love the option to follow along with text at the bottom and highlight for notes.

Some technical issues. Some writing prompts gave me error messages when trying to submit, also had a glitch where text would copy and paste itself while I was typing and would not let me erase it.

Altogether a great first course with very detailed descriptions about project management. I was able to reinforce what I already knew and learn more about project methodologies and organizational culture. (Those were a couple of topics I thought were interesting). I had a fun time learning and look forward to participating in the upcoming courses.

Well thought out and professionally presented. Meaningful exercises.

Google admirably met the challenge of providing a 'survey' of Project Management while also preparing students with the 'pillars' or 'underpinning' of PM.

One can choose to slide through without engaging in the optional work, but if one does, they're just cheating themselves.

This course was extremely helpful in building my core knowledge in the domain of project management. It was a compact course which didn't skip anything. All the terminologies that are in use today and every project manager should know were compiled and available for download. This course was great and I can not wait to complete my other courses.

This course is one of the best decisions i've ever taken, I had no idea on what project management is or what the career opportunities are but this course is an eye opener for me, that there are more opportunities than that we have heard about. I've decided to finish the whole Google Project Management as soon as possible and im super excited.

Un curso introductorio sobre la Gestión de Proyectos.

Si no tienes ningun conocimiento sobre el tema será perfecto para aprender sobre las bases sobre las que se fundamenta no solos los proeyctos sino las organizaciones.

Si vienes de un transfondo de proyectos, este curso te servirá para refrescar los conocimientos y aprender uno que otro detalle

It's engaging with lots of different activities and really delivers on its promise to demonstrate how project management is a relevant skill even beyond the professional scope.

I enjoyed how so much foundational learnings are conveyed lightly to me as someone who knows very little knowledge about project management. I loved the course outlines, the examples (the teachings), and the personal message from the Google employees/program managers; it motivates me more to seek this new career path. Thanks Google & Coursera!

La verdad obtuve más de lo que esperaba, la instrucción básica de como buscar un trabajo acorde y como destacar como candidato me gustó mucho, realmente durante ninguna carrera te lo enseñan, además de como ver de manera más profesional la estructura de una organización y donde ubicarte como project manager tampoco me lo esperaba y me sirvió
