I like the approach, it is based on actual experience which answers the "how" that is usually left out of the course material
Was very beneficial. I liked the deliverable review bit as well as the Milestone countdown. will definitely use these as well as others going forward. i have used the deliverable review on design projects in past and is beneficial. Even when putting tenders together we did this. Very helpful. Getting others on board tends to be a problem and keeping them there.
