Straight forward approach to a broad subject broken down into understandable, bite-sized chunks. I am glad I took this intro.

Sherif28 August 2019

very basic intro, no practical examples and instructor actually reads the slides. but it was fine as starter material for PgMP

Jenni14 March 2019

Didn't expect much content for the course length. It was as expected. The instructor was difficult to understand.

David11 December 2018

The material was fine but the quiz at the end had material totally unrelated to the video content and was consistently referring to a book that was not a part of the course.

Ben8 August 2018

Helps bolster my existing experience base with appropriate real world best practices that should be deployed in complex environments to adequately support effective project, programme or portfolio mgmt. & associated delivery in support of business objectives/outcomes.

Gregory7 August 2018

A good course it supports the other reference book material I had also purchased on the subject and read, and helped add to a practical daily use.

Kacey8 April 2018

Good high-level content however, difficult to hear instructor. PC volume is at 100% and its still hard in some slides to hear at all.

Tolga11 July 2017

I viewed this one hour review course when I first decided to embark on my PgMP certification. This course offers a good high level view on the PgMP certification and testing process. I high recommend Leithy's all PgMP courses at Udemy for anybody aspiring to obtain PgMP.

Vitalii18 June 2017

With maximum volume on speakers I hardly listened to this course. Please update soundtrack. Uncommon pronunciation and therefore subtitles will be very useful. Quiz questions were omitted in lessons.

David7 June 2017

A straightforeward intro to PgMP certification. I had read PMI's PgMP Standard through once before this course. As a result, I believe I got even more out of this course. However, it would not be necessary to get good value from this intro course.

Mohamed7 May 2017

it's a professional and simple way to provide an introduction about the program and portfolio management, also its supported with explanation charts which make the information's easier to understand.

Tom28 March 2017

I have over 30 years experience in Program Management. After retiring 2 years ago I wanted to start taking some refresher coursed to prepare for re-entry into the work place. This course is right on track with my previous experience and well detailed for easy understanding.
