Introduction to Project Management
This course is designed to give you the fundamentals of Project Management. You will learn the basic principles of Project Management by managing a fundraising event for your local farmers market. You will designate responsible team members to help you, build a timeline and see the different ways that you can manage the project. Together, we will walk through not only the documentation, but also the theories and reasoning behind each task. You will learn how to look at a large project and break it down into manageable pieces and then how to build an action plan so that you hit your deadlines with your team. By the end of the course, you will have created a Project Scope document, Stakeholder Responsibility Matrix, sequenced a task list, added task owners, and a explored several popular project views using Project Management software. You will be ready to tackle a project on your own or will be equipped to take a higher-level course in Project Management. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
gained some knowledge on project management and hands on experience, done only one project and it's so simple, it would be great if there is another project added to it.
Nice course, Dear Megan Peck. It can be made more interesting by including hands-on work and case studies, for better clarity to prepare one for a job or higher studies in PM.
Really great that this is a hands off course. It would be better if it was more relatable to my field and if it shows you how to do the project management piece in Excel.
This is one of the most helpful Coursera Project Network to enhance my project management skills with my current job as a Mechanical Engineer
