Does let you know practices that help in making the right product that is managed right and done right, with retrospective techniques that can be implemented after the project is completed.
In this course, I lean a lot of things based on review and metrics for software, such as sprint iteration, project iteration, daily scrum, project perspective, and many more.

This is a great course for leading the development team but it's very theoretical.
It is better to add videos from real-world meetings.
par Richard C•
Maybe it would be better to add more exercises to assimilate better the content. Same as previous courses in the Specialization.
par N L•
It's a good course to understand the base and learn concepts. There could be more examples illustrating the theory. Recommend.
par Jérôme C•
Very good, but I wish for more analysis of what self-destructive metrics mean and how to handle them (who own the metric, etc)
par Ajay C•
Very nice content and presented so nicely. Must read and highly recommended course for all managers and business analysts.
par Seyed M H M•
Generally was a good course although I've expected more metrics for product like HEART and Pirate
par Juan F•
very fundamental course, not sure if its the whole material for an specialization
par Jacob C•
Great course to learn all about tracking progress in your software project
par Rafik B•
I learned a lot and it will help me understand the processes much better
par Helen G F•
It was challenging but Coursera made learning easy. Student must focus!
par Sumit G•
Pretty good course, although could have been a bit more exhaustive
par Kevin S•
One of the best parts of the specialization! Really recommended
par Victor U•
Good course, but it reviewed items found in other courses.

It's challenging to teach and learn product management through an online course. You can get an overview of the important topics and learn the theory, but this doesn't enable discussion, exchanging experiences, and forming balanced opinions. A product management does a lot of her/his work by talking (to many different people involved), which is very difficult to train online (it could be done with role playing assignments supported by video conferencing, but I think learning from experienced colleagues in practice is a much better way). The quizzes are often a good way to rehearse the topics that have been explained, but sometimes feel like an extremely simplified black-white view on very nuanced issues.
The best parts of the Software Product Management courses for me were the larger assignments you make that are reviewed by fellow students (getting feedback is very useful and it's also instructive to see what approach your peers took) and the interviews with experienced product managers which offer valuable insights in the complicated situations product managers often have to deal with.
I recommend this course to anyone that is new to software product management and quite new to software development. The course can be a good first step on your path to becoming a product manager, as long as you realize that you will also need a lot of skills that an online course cannot teach you.

I think the lesson about Project Retrospective is too "theoretical" instead of applicable. I don't known n the real world industry outside my country (Indonesia), I have been in few companies and discussing about project retrospective with my colleague in the same fields, this is quite "awkward" to be done.
And I think you should also include more examples of business metrics that widely used for software product like CVR (conversion rate), TPV (total purchase volume), Chunk Rate, etc

I feel the information given in this course would have been better served in parts of other courses. Comparing to other courses in this specialization, this one felt very dull and not useful on its own.
