In this first section, we'll cover the basics. Projects come in all shapes and sizes. We'll look at what a project is, the project manager and the project management triangle to get users thinking about what it means to manage a project.

Every project goes through five distinct stages. In this final section, we consider an employee's role at each stage and how they can keep the project moving forwards towards success. This could be a personal or professional project - it doesn’t matter!

Informative & straight to the point

I enjoyed the course, I do feel it was the "basics" but explained in plain English to make it easier for someone new to project management as a role. This in turn could also be seen as a negative depending on the target audience. it was full of useful tips and the all the core values were explained clearly. The intro was engaging and because it was such a short course I didn't feel distracted or bored while watching it. There was also no specific project type which means it would help when wanting to apply the basics of project management to any type of task. Lastly we used a similar portal in my previous role which worked well.

Seems ok

Straight forward.

Well designed and comprehensive.

The course is brief but covers all aspects of project management. I enjoyed taking the course and gained a lot within a short space of time. I recommend the course to anyone who has interest in project management.
