This is a very good start to project management. The 50,000 foot view is great for beginners as well as mid-managers that need to understand the processes. Examples are very good tools to give a beginner a head-start on developing their own tools. I will be developing some new processes and tools for my team which will help them grasp the importance of each step of managing projects and make their project tracking a little easier.

Our instructor, Michael, was fantastic. Our class was only three students, which made room for a great discussion and explanation of any questions we came up with. I was worried about how interactive it was going to be opposed to just lectures, but I would definitely recommend this type of learning for anyone looking to further advance themselves. I would be comfortable taking another course, such as this, in the future.
