This is the third course in the Google Project Management Certificate program. This course will explore how to map out a project in the second phase of the project life cycle: the project planning phase. You will examine the key components of a project plan, how to make accurate time estimates, and how to set milestones. Next, you will learn how to build and manage a budget and how the procurement processes work. Then, you will discover tools that can help you identify and manage different types of risk and how to use a risk management plan to communicate and resolve risks. Finally, you will explore how to draft and manage a communication plan and how to organize project documentation. Current Google project managers will continue to instruct and provide you with hands-on approaches for accomplishing these tasks while showing you the best project management tools and resources for the job at hand.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PROJECT PLANNING: PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
Great course lot of useful tips and real world examples. Wish they also provided more course notes / materials to keep and follow with. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.
The course is very well explained and aligned to basic requirements to be a Project Manager but it can be little short and upto the point, cause for working professionals like me. it is too lengthy.
The Peer grading is too cumbersome and inconsistent for my liking. I had to resubmit the same project a couple of times to get mine completed. Other than that - Great
The content of the course was good but some of the later activities were far too advanced and/or long. I didn't feel I has sufficient knowledge or resources to complete them with confidence.
