This is an excellent course in project management. I like the way the google tutors explain everything in simple English. The staff are well spoken and are easy to understand. The tutors explain the concepts of project management in details to the highest level of specificity.

This course strikes the perfect balance - it's accessible enough for people who are just learning about project management for the first time, but provides enough detail and reference materials so people who are already in project management roles can still learn something new!

As a student, I really learned a lot especially knowing things outside my degree which is marketing, it made me be more open to new job opportunities like project management. Grateful to discover this course in Coursera, and thank you Google for making such a wonderful course!

This self guided certificate was easier to understand and study! Combining mini lectures readings and thoughtful quizzes made it more interesting than being in other online courses. This was really well thought out and made me want to finish as it was a fun journey of lessons.

extremely clear and helpful intro to Project Management.

I would just comment the quiz sometimes don't focus on the "core" learnings but more on the correct wording of a sentence, which in my opinion doesn't highlight the most important items of the project management course.

Ce cours vraiment très intéressant , le point qui m' a surpris c'est l'explication détaillée des méthodologies de la gestion du projet , parmi les responsabilité les plus remarquable c'est trouver les liens adéquats entre la gouvernance de projet et la gouvernance corporate.

Great course! You will get new knowledge even if you couple of years in this field. I like how they did all the video & text materials. Tests made good to understand whether you understand everything correctly or not, and you should re-watch re-read the particular block.

Easy to follow and nice varied learning material. I like the Google PMs who did the videos, easily relatable. I never understood what Change Management meant before, so this was like an Aha moment with this course!! I recommend as a great overview of Project Management.

This course is excellent. It's indeed a beginner-friendly course. I love how the coordinator breaks down every piece of the topic. I also enjoyed the day in the life of a project manager videos — they gave me an overview of what the work of a project manager looks like.
