This course blended the theoretical and practical really well - everything from avoiding the "bright shiny objects" on the path to transformation, to how to raise the right discussions with leadership, and keys to success for engaging employees and technology. Not every transformation will succeed - but with this course and learnings in hand, our chances of success improve!
The material is simple and accessible. The instructor was very good at explaining complex concepts. The pace and workload was excellent for someone who is also working. The assignment and project really help you put into practice and integrate what you have learned. I highly recommend this class!
The data science program provided me with the foundation of data sciences and laid the groundwork to build on my acquired skills. As an oil and gas professional, I enrolled in this program to expand my hard skills and enable my pivot to the tech industry. I found the program to be very practical, with lots of content and teaching support. The final group projects in every course also led me to expand my network.
This course is invaluable for new supervisors—it provides insight into what motivates, frustrates, and inspires the various personality types on your team. I loved it and plan to refer back to my notes often!
Super organized and engaging! I really enjoyed it. Best virtual course I have done yet and my entire masters was online. Very well done.
My DiSC report offered a complete analysis of my current leadership style and the areas where I need to improve. I have a clear understanding and roadmap of how to work on my weaknesses.
Honestly, I learned a lot through this course. I do not intend to become a project manager, but this course gave me some tools for managing projects (as a functional manager) and also gave me a great understanding of the purpose and needs of project managers. The highlight of the course was interacting with the instructor. Her energy was infectious.
