- John Watson,


I am a recent chemical engineering graduate looking to start my career as a junior project engineer and I found this course to be very useful to provide me not only understanding but also practice for the basics of project management.

- Lalita Bharatula,


Those of us who actually started as "Accidental Project Managers” (but maybe slow to admit it) would have benefited from this this book when we ourselves made the transition from subject specialist to project manager.  Much to be recommended.
