  1. I am currently working in the Project Management Department but my supervisor has focused me on Business Analysis and Process Improvement since no teammate has to handle analysis except for my skills. I have observed from my team that the experiences Ms. Nell has shared are somewhat similar to what I have observed. The initial stage for PM would be scoping and meetings will have the different departments getting involved like Recruitment, IT, Sales, and Finance. There are times in the Execution Stage that the projects are experiencing some downfall because of the client’s demand. There are also times that we haven’t met the timeline requirement and we have to communicate to all the departments involved in the project. It’s actually hard but fulfilling especially after we launch a project. And I like the discussion with Ms. Nell that she gets to share her experiences being a Project Manager and that made me reflect.

    1. Mam Nell is a great speaker. Thank you for sharing your experience as a project manager. I surely learned a lot! Now I aspire to be one

  20. What I’ve learned with the lesson is a big help for my future as I am just starting my career in construction field. Being a project manager was not easy and holds a big responsibility from start to finish of construction. Project manager must know every details of construction from the smaller one to the bigger details and knows how to handle the pressure and stress from being a project manager. But most of all, project manager must be an effective and efficient leader to his team to be able to achieve the goal.

  21. I have been interested in Project Management field, and this online self-paced learning experience is a helpful one since it discussed the basics/ what I need to know about it. Thank you very much!

  22. For starters, I really enjoyed the presentation of Engr. Nell Peñamante it is very informative that I learned so much and I suggest to all who are going to take this e-learning course, you all must jot notes because what I learned I am certain that this will help me in my future references and my journey in Industrial Engineering program. The most remarkable speech that Engr. Nell said that stuck in my mind is always be an open minded person and always be humble. I just want to say thank you to ASK LEX PH ACADEMY and most importantly to Engr. Nell Peñamante who motivates me even more to pursue my dreams, to gain some tips in my colleges journey and make me love what I’m doing right now even more.

  23. Good presentation. Very understandable because the examples are mostly from her own experience and not a “copy-paste” from some where. And also, I had a chance to work under Project Manager from a Manufacturing company and now I understand more how and what my manager goes through in every project. Thanks for the knowledge!

  24. This webinar explains to me the ethical ways or steps in Project Management. It is very informative since Ms. Nell explains every examples briefly and mostly from her own experience.

  25. This is an informative talk and well explained topic. Also communication is one of the keys to good management, which was also mentioned by Ms. Nell. Thank you Ask Lex PH for bringing a free webinar amidst the situation therein.

  26. Thank you Ms. Nell for sharing your knowledge and experiences that will help us a lot! It gives us knowledge on how to have a successful project management!

  27. This webinar is very informative and reflective at the same time. It made me realize how integrity plays a very vital role in the field of management.

  28. Being a project manager is a big responsibility and one must be realistic. Be true to words and create other alternative plans to save time. A good communication with the team is also a key and always udate skills . Thank you! The webinar is very informative

  29. Thank you for the webinar. I really admire how the speaker made the discussion very easy to understand. I’ve learned that being a project manager is not an easy job, they are responsible for planning, organizing, and directing the completion of specific projects for an organization while ensuring these projects are on time, on budget, and within scope.

  30. Being a project manager sounds exhausting and it put a lot of pressure especially for an individual entity who is the one to manage the whole project from manpower up to raw materials and everything. Every decision we might take has a great impact on the result of the project so the challenge of being the project manager was not a joke. But thanks for the tips and knowledge Ms. Penamante brought us, we can overview the hindrance and the pros and cons of being one were classified and also determine what we can do if we become a project manager one day.

  31. Well detailed explanation and it is very helpful as an IE student to know the importance of project management especially in communication because it is the main target to have perfect execution as a team.

  32. As an aspiring project manager, this course was very close to my heart. It gave me in-depth understanding on the roles and responsibilities of a PM. The PM should have good planning, analytical, and communication skills. While the PM is the brain of a project, it would not be possible to execute it without the rest of the team. Aside all the technicalities, work culture is extremely important as well. Also, I am amazed by her passion as she explained the topics. I can feel that she really loves and knows what she’s doing. Thank you for this wonderful session, Ask Lex PH!

  33. Good day po, ma’am! I really appreciate your content po because it’s very informative po. There are so many lessons about Project Management to be learned from your video po. Such as, Project is just temporary and unique. Project Management is the application of knowledge and skills to project activities to meet the project requirements. To clearly understand, the project that will be given to you is related to the knowledge or skill you have. Additionally, I don’t know po that there is also a cycle in the Project Management, which is Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling and Closing.
    Moreover, the way you spoke was very clear po and the listeners will understand it very well. Again, thank you po for your video. God bless po!!

  34. It was very informative and examples are based on the presenter’s experience. Learned tips on how to face some issues in managing projects. Thank you very much, Ms. Nell. Very good job! Keep it up…

  35. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and tips, Engr. Nell. As a graduating student, I am considering to take a Six Sigma Certification and you have mentioned that it will surely help individuals to better understand project management. I am now convinced. Also, thank you Ask Lex PH Academy for this learning experience.
