Exploring Project Management, Then and Now (2021 Update)
The history of business is the history of project management.

In this course, you'll explore how project management approaches have evolved to address changing project environments. You'll learn about the transition from purely empirical, waterfall models of PM to more adaptive, hybrid, and agile project management techniques.
