Overview

Project management is an essential skill-set for many careers and in many contexts in our lives. Introduction to Project Management is an ideal starting point if you need to manage projects at work or at home, while not necessarily being a formally trained project manager. It is also suitable if you are considering undertaking a project in the near future and are seeking to learn and apply essential project management knowledge and skills.

To deliver a project successfully, it’s important to start by clearly identifying what the project is, and what its outcomes will be. In the course, we will show you practical ways to explore and understand your goals from the outset of your project, and to consider all the factors that may affect its execution. Step by step you will learn how to plan, scope, schedule, cost and manage your project from beginning to end. Since every project relies on the people who are delivering it, the course also enables you to explore how you can effectively communicate, manage people and employ leadership skills to successfully deliver your own project.

In Introduction to Project Management, you will learn practical ways to use project management skills, whether your project is large or small. Join us to explore how you can benefit from using project management techniques in your own projects.

Being 2-3 hours a week, it's less of an actual course than a crash course workshop on project management. Even with prior project management knowledge (I previously worked as a project coordinator), I still found the course quite useful as it does reinforce a lot fo the concepts and theories I used before,...

by Muhammad completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
The format: Short videos explain core concepts, quizzes at the end of weeks, and discussion questions spread out across the course. Scenarios are used to explain the different stages of project management (initiation, planning, execution, and closure) My views: The concepts are explained well but...

I took this course to prep myself for a leadership role in a large personal project and I have to say that this class was excellent! Even with an audit there are a lot of interactive activities to help learn more about your strengths and weaknesses, as well as active forums if you decide to participate in those. The course was mostly videos and provided in depth information on things to look out for when managing a project, and used three example scenarios throughout the course to make the content easier to understand. I would love to take this course again in the future as it was a very positive experience for me! :)
