The ROIC Model tree and the examples attached to scaling operations with case studies are very well connected and presented

Very much effective for professionals. Truly empirical.

Pending Peer-grading for an asignment but I found the course really interesting. I especially liked the theory - practical changes in this course. Some additional case studies would be of interest. Thanks!

The content of the course is intense and assignments of the course is bit tough. Overall good learning from course. Thanks to Coursera and Professors.
