This is so helpful, I've learn a lot
The Managing Successful Projects module is an essential resource for project management professionals. It offers comprehensive insights into project planning, execution, and monitoring, equipping learners with the tools needed to succeed in the dynamic world of project management. With its practical approach, it's a valuable asset for both beginners and experienced practitioners. The module's well-structured content and practical exercises facilitate a deeper understanding of project management concepts, ensuring successful project delivery. If you're looking to enhance your project management skills, this module is a must-have. Lots of credited to the lecturer Mr. Joseph Omeiza
The course is very excellent and on my field of work.
The course was taught well, Pual and Joseph were awesome teachers. They were super engaging approachable and very knowledgeable about all the topics we covered. I found Joseph's real-life examples about both companies and personal situations to be particularly helpful and they really simplified the technicality of the material and helped me grasp some of the more nuanced topics. I think we covered most of the stuff in the right amount of detail during the class, but one I think I would have liked is more specific recommendations on which of the extra practice Excel sheets in the files we were working on would be best to complete given that there's a lot of them and I wasn't too sure how to prioritize extra practice.

Whether you are a novice or an experienced project manager, I highly recommend this course if you are interested in learning about project management. The curriculum is clear and simple to follow. The instructors are subject matter experts in project management, and the video lectures are interesting and educational. The course offers a variety of additional learning tools in addition to the video lectures, including case studies, interactive exercises, assignments, and quizzes. These tools give students the chance to apply what they have learned to actual situations while also serving to reinforce the ideas that are covered in the video lectures. Why not try it out for yourself and reap the benefits?
