We do not intend this course to be the absolute final word in project management; it should rather form part of your learning. You should supplement it with your growing and developing experience that will be gained in the light of what you have learned here. Dont forget the experience you already have though, and remember you can take a lot from projects you have already been involved with, even if you were not the project manager. This can be both good and bad. Dont ignore the bad experiences as these can often teach you more than the projects that went well.
