Learn the process



In the course, you can see what processes I follow to achieve the key tasks, such as gathering requirements, identifying stakeholders or creating a schedule.

With lots of examples



This is a practical course. That's why I'm sharing lots of examples and screenshots. For example, on the left you can see an update dashboard I use for reporting the project status to executives.

The power of psychology



If you understand what drives human behavior, you can use this knowledge in your interactions with stakeholders and team members and be 10x more effective. This is the magic skill that helped me stand out from other PMs. You can learn it too from the examples in the course (again, no theory-BS, but real-world stuff)
