Work Smarter, Not Harder: Time Management for Personal and Professional Productivity


School: University of California-Irvine

Platform: Coursera

Registration Link:

Start Date: April 6, 2015 (4 Weeks)

Workload: 2-4 Hours Per Week (Self-Paced)

Instructor: Margaret Meloni

Credentials: Meloni is the President of Meloni Coaching Solutions, where she provides online and in-person soft skill consulting for project managers on areas like self-assessments, conflict management, and career rehabilitation. Her clients have included: Occidental Petroleum, Northrop Grumman, Toyota Motor Credit, Southern California Edison, and CalStart. She holds an MBA from Long Beach State University and was a contributing author to 101 Great Ways to Enhance Your Career.

Graded: Students will earn a verified certificate for completing this course.

Description: Priorities…Tradeoffs…Deadlines. Ask any project manager and they’ll tell you that you’re often choosing between bad-and-worse, not right-and-wrong. In this course, students will develop the self-awareness and tools needed to make better decisions and become more productive in a fast-changing and ambiguous work setting. Over four weeks, students will learn when and how to delegate; set reasonable expectations with their peers and superiors; better manage existing resources; and establish personal and professional goals. The course will taught through 8-12 minute lecture videos, with students evaluated through quizzes.

Review: No reviews.

Additional Note: This is the first part of a Business Tools for Career Readiness specialization available through Coursera. Students will receive a specialization certificate that reflects that they completed three courses (including “Finance for Non-Financial Professionals” and “Project Management: The Basics for Success”) and a capstone project. The total cost of a certification is $196.

    Hi, Jorge. We checked everything after you posted this and the links worked…except for Finance for Non-Financial Professionals. That has been cancelled by Coursera and we have removed it from our site. Thanks for touching base with us.

  • Jeff Schmitt

    Hello, Paxty. I believe it is no longer available. I can’t get it on the regular Coursera site and it is no longer listed among U.C.-Irvine’s site. We have pulled that course from this article. Thanks for letting us know about this.
