Project Management

This web page contains links to course material that I created for international students preparing a Master's degree at EPITA (Graduate School of Computer Science), where I taught Project Management from March 2009 until June 2017. I used the same material from late 2009 until early 2013 for the course I gave to students preparing a Master's degree in Multilingual & Multimedia Documentation Design at the University of Paris-Diderot (Paris 7).
