I've been a technical writer for decades, but project planning is a skillset I've been missing. I'm soaking it all in, thanks to Jordan's "trust me, I've been there" approach and delivery.

Dionysios Frantzis

Project management (PM), as a discipline, is arguably quite vague when it comes to the specifics of its application, mainly due to the breadth of areas and scenarios it can be used in. In my experience, courses revolving around PM tend to be fairly general, but this particular course does a good job of providing application scenarios specific to technical writing, all things considered.
