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

A thorough introduction to project management! I think that the instructional designers did a wonderful job on this course. Videos were no more than 7 minutes, there were plenty of interactive activities to check understanding, and each quiz was challenging but attainable. I left course 1 with lots of new ideas, notes, and excitement about a new career journey.

For a new comer like me jumping into this certificate was not challenging at all. the course is very well detailed and the additional resources help better understand the course materials as well. The videos are great and the practice interactive assignments are great too!. I highly recommend for those who have no background or knowledge of Project Management.

Very concise, full of information, and easy to digest. It seems to touch on all points of project management so you get a good scope of role and field. I love the way it was broken down between the videos and readings. I also very much enjoyed the videos from Google team members! They are full of insightful tips and tidbits. Overall, really great first course.

This course is a must for entry-level project managers who wish to pursue their careers as Project Managers, and a refresher for experienced project managers. It provides a solid foundation for the core principles of Project Management through well-structured videos and reading materials with relevant exercises and quizzes. I recommend this course to everyone.

I'm open for the content as it's extended. New learning is always welcomed and I'm surprised to learn how project management has been in my sphere and I didn't know it. Light -bulb moment. also I'm not a PM currently however having the terms applicable to the functions has been an eye opener on leveraging what I currently do and adding PM as a proficent skill.

This course opened my eyes to things about my past experiences that i had taken for granted. I now understand that I could leverage on my past skills and exposure to present myself as a Project manager.

It is a course of true self discovery . Thanks to the instructor who took out time to explicitly laid bare the nitty gritty of Project Management Foundations

Very clear, easy to follow information. It really provides a clear understanding into the basis of Project Management and prepares you for further education on Project Managment. For me personally, I feel that it really helped promote excitement and knowledge around the career unlike a lot of other information I have come across. So far, I love this course!!

This course is a perfect solution for me. I was a messy one at work and never understood the importance of being organized. When I started looking for a change from my career I found this one interesting and now I can't wait to finish all courses of the project maagement. The instructor was so good at describing the concepts. He literraly changed my mindset.

First, this is a very interesting, motivating, and informative course.  Second, it was on my radar for quite sometime, but I needed availability.  Third, I'm ready for the next course in this specialization.  And finally, I highly recommend enrolling in this specialization. In fact, it should be mandatory even for those not interested in Project Management.

This was a beautiful introduction to the world of project management. It was also very helpful to see what the foundations of successful project management looks like even though I have been doing it for nearly 5 years. It really got me excited to keep pursuing the certificate, learning, and searching for opportunities in the future for this type of career.

I am thankful to Coursera for financial aid. This is really a valuable course & in this tough time without help from coursera it was not possible to me gain new skill. Also, I am very satisfied with this learning material as it is a very well designed & providing complete scenario in brief and back to back assessment within course to verify understanding.

Excellent Course. After 15 Years of experience in Project Management, this course was an eye opener for me to understand the technical facts - Project Life Cycles, The Tools and understanding more about the Roles & Responsibilities of a Project Manager. If you love to take responsibilities leading groups on common tasks, you should do this...

Very easy to understand and follow. The instructor and speakers provided concise explanations and used layman-friendly terminologies to make the learning much easier than it actually is.

I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience! For those still on the fence wondering if you should enrol, my advice is to think no more and sign up to see for yourself!

I'm glad I decided to try the course. Halfway through the first module, I discovered that project management is not something I'm interested in. However, I do think this is an excellent course. It's presented in a very engaging way that's easy and fun to learn. I may revisit the course in the future if I ever need training in project management skills.

The course is easy to understand, teacher uses the examples which can be found in our daily life, and that truly enhances the knowledge of the lessons. The course is also well-designed, it gives us the basic and overall understanding about Project Management, step by step, with this program, I can already picture myself in working as a Project Manager.

Ce cours est à la théorique et pratique. Il m'a permis de matérialiser les notions apprises dans un contexte de gestion de projet réel. Le partage d'expériences des professionnels de la gestion de projet et les commentaires des pairs ont été d'une grande richesse. Je peux déjà appliquer ces connaissances apprises jusqu'ici dans mes projets personnels.

Curso muito refinado extremamente fácil de entender, até pra que não tem o inglês fluente, da pra traduzir normalmente. Fala muito sobre metodologias de gerência de projetos, fala sobre ciclo de vida de projetos, culturas de empresas, dicas para arrumar um novo emprego na área, exemplos de casos de sucesso enfim da pra aplicar tudo o que foi passado.

This course has taught me new skills that I am able to apply in any type of project that I encounter. The course was spread out enough to be able to tackle with a full time work schedule. The mix of videos, reading material and interactive questions made it easier to digest. I am looking forward to applying these skills into my current sales position.
