As a web design agency owner, who's been managing projects for over 10 years, I found this course very helpful. The inclusion of case studies (what may go wrong / which difficult conversations may need to occur) as well as the hybrid Agile+Gantt were very applicable. Furthermore, Brett's humble & calm approach was inspiring. Thank you for this well planned course Brett. Cem Goknil/Ajanweb
