About This Class

Throughout our lives, we have been asked to complete projects without really being taught the basics of how to actually execute them. You were given a set of project requirements and a due date and were expected to work with your team to deliver a final product.

 Now think back to how you felt before, during, and after the project; were you overwhelmed, frustrated, or disinterested? This is one example of how learning the basics of managing a project could have turned an exhausting experience into one leaving you with a sense of satisfaction and achievement.

Whether you’re interested in becoming a project manager, or just looking to sharpen your event planning skills, this class is a good place to start. During this 15 min class, you’ll master the basics of project management, how to set a project up for success, and how to execute upon your plan to achieve the desired results.

Very informative class and didn't take much time to take. The only feedback I have is that the instructor speaks rather fast. I think in some components she could have taken a little more time to elaborate. Otherwise, valuable knowledge.
Nice high level overview of project management. If you are looking for a brief overview, this is good for you; if you want something super in depth, 15 minutes is not going to cut it :)
A great and easy to understand course.
