It is suitable for people with less experience in project management.

There has never been an available option of downloading the lessons of the Introduction to Project Management in a PowePoint/PDF document.Printing these lessons page by page takes a lot of time and moreover is a terrible waste of paper and trees!!!

real world in 5 reviews

Changes and Risks always occur in the real world so the same things certainly happen in projects.

Lessons and terms are great, but real world applications are necessary to help you learn to practice your newly acquired skills.
