The course covered very helpful topics like the RACI chart for stakeholder mapping and assigning responsibilities and I also like the introduction to project management tools. I also enjoyed the step by step process of generating a project charter that was covered in this course.

There were a lot of deliverables in this course, and there was also a lot of content. I completed it in 2 days, but should have spaced it out. The work seemed overwhelming because of it, but it's totally doable, and now I have things to present when I interview for PM positions.

This is a very informative and helpful course for beginners. It's great that you can save some templates for project documentation which you can use for your further job. With the knowledge from this course I have already got my first offer for Junior Project Manager position!

Amazing second part can't wait for the next one.

Although all concepts are simple to grasp on the context of this course, I believe that they may differ a bit in actual practice . But that's the point of going through all of this to actually get a job an see what is all about

This was a great course that helped me fill a few gaps in my project initiation skills. Even as a seasoned product manager that works on several projects annually, there were still things I picked up in this course that will benefit my future projects by a substantial amount.

I learned a lot of useful stuff in this course, concerning Project Initiation.

Things that were just abstract terms became concrete, and I learned how to deal with different process, and how to initate larger projects in a proffessional way.

Thank you Google, and Coursera!

A nice overview of starting a project. The material gave me a good introduction to what tools are available for different parts of the process. It might nice if the work were not so heavily concentrated in week 2 but perhaps this is dictated by the grouping of the topics.

It was a very good course for me to learn more about the initiation phase of the project. As one of the important phase of the project, I also spend most of the time in this area. As a Senior manager JuAnne's video deliveries were exceptional and were interesting to listen.

by Fernando L G


Deep dive into the initiation of a project. They are emphatic on how important it is to set objectives, define scope, establish success criterias and proper documentation. They also give you an insight on how to do it by providing templates and examples. Great course!

Very good examples with the inclusion of templates. I like how they recap the main points of the video with the reading assignments right after. The charter project assignment felt like a true assessment for getting started and understanding the essential components.

This course gives the would-be project manager a solid background in such a manner that after you're done with this course, you also get a new level of confidence regarding handling project initiation. I kept wondering is there was more needed on the specialization.

This course give you an overview on the project initiation and introduce multiple tools that could be used during the process. A good start for beginner to have some basic idea but definitely need practice and participation to be familiar with how to use the tools.

This course helps bring order to the processes and systemize everything. Some things were already familiar, but there was chaos in my head. Now I will try to put everything in order. And useful lessons about tools. These are my favorite points in all the courses.

Could not recommend this course more! It is getting increasingly more informative as I go. I enjoy that it slowly starts to give you more and more information and it doesn't jump straight in with mountains of information. This course is definitely student focused

by Abdulwasiu J


The course is informative a shocking for me, as I worked in project management for more than 5 years but still learned new things, I hope I learnt it before I started my first job, I could avoid a lot of mistake and worked easily. thanks for this amazing course.

by Antonio S


Very good training that offers a structured approach to the initial phase of projects. It provides work approaches in this phase such as the inclusion of all participants (team), how to gain visibility, secure the necessary resources and avoid costly obstacles.

by Alfredo F


One of my favorite things about this course is that I get to work at my own pace. This gave me the chance to step away and think about assignments or the next section I had pending. It helped me approach the course content with a fresh perspective everytime.
