Personally I saw this course very practical and helpful and did made an impact on my current responsibilities. I like how operations manangement tied into project management.

As working in a very competitive market that need a sold strategy plan, I found that this course is very helpful in initiating a good strategy or modifying the old strategy in your business with a flavor of a true business examples.

Also, focusing in the critical stage of the strategy journey which is the execution stage is what make this course very useful for a practical business environment. I like the interviews with the high-ups managers in Nissan Company and Bridgestone Company as well.
