“Most engineers would not know how to manage a system to improve the revenue stream. This course gives you that knowledge through such tools as Project Charter, Project Planning, Value Stream Mapping, SWOT Analysis, Hoshin Planning and more. What I liked about the course is that it is interactive and realistic.”
