  6. Quite an exciting and revealing journey thus far.

    I’ve learned a few practical skills-which I’m applying to my every day job as a security manager.

  7. As a Project manager, it is my duty to write down a suitable communication plan,have regular contact with specialists, Report progress of projects, work on realistic time schedule,make the client understand how the system works and never be afraid to bring bad news to the table because solutions can be drafted out.

  8. I think the timetable is quite alright, probably until I see how long a module would last or take. But is there a way the time table could be put in a graphical form or something, instead of always coming here to check and confirm?
    Just my thought tho.

    1. I think it’s quite okay, probably till I see how long a module should take.Also it there a way the time table can be put in from of a graphical form or something instead of always coming here to check for the timetable
