    The knowledge from class will help me on a number of different project teams & initiatives. I would have liked class to be a bit longer, it is a lot of information. But overall, another great experience.

    Our teacher presented the material very well and corrected our group on startup challenges with the assignments. Methods and understanding of strategy are great ways to get others to think and rethink how to operate. These classes make me excited. Thank you as always.

    Great Course

    Too many people forget about strategy and focus on automation and putting everything in the cloud...and forgetting the vision. This class really emphasizes that strategy is key to success. Love the way you used the game to teach us a new topic. It wasn't a review, it was teaching via a game experience.
