I have learned new things about agile practices and it worth the time to take the course. Sometimes I had the impression that some subject are vague, but overall the course rised to the expectations
This course was Excellent. The Instructor is very engaging and kept my attention through all of the 4 weeks of class. The Assignment was extremely helpful in applying the learning to a project.

Overall the course is fine. Actually, this is the first course out of 3 in the specialization that I didn't struggle that much with.
1 star I am taking off because of 2 particular things:
First - at the end of the Week 3 learners have to take a Quiz, but answer(s) to one question at least is provided in the videos of Week 4, which doesn't make much sense and resulted for me in multiple attempts to have it all 100% right (actually, I was able to answer only after watching the videos).
Second - in the peer-reviewed assignment Alex offers 2 options to choose from (to answer in general words or to make the business canva and the storyboard), but in the evaluation itself it is expected that you actually have the business canva and the storyboard, otherwise you will lose the points. Which also doesn't make much sense.
These two things should be reviewed by the instructor and/or Coursera.

Overall an excellent course. Provides plenty of actionable information and advice for managing Agile teams. The peer reviewed coursework, while excellent exercises in themselves, don't provide as much feedback as I'd like. It seems like they're marked without the real desire to provide valuable feedback, but as a tedious, mandatory task required to get your grade.

It's a good course. It is dealing concepts about Agile, not only scrum which is usually to be the common in other courses. Perhaps, in these courses are necessary to introduce more exercise practical beginning lesson 1. The review the other peers, is not exhaustive and when you review other works, there are a lot of tasks similars.
par Jens G•
In depth and practical.
Some more linking to the previous courses could provide better framing of the courses content in the larger scheme. For a more systemic view of how all things are connected in this course and all previous courses I would have to go deep into it all again. As this was my first acquaintance with such a course

I loved the course and Alex is great at explaining everything but probably things I don't directly work with software development, I didn't feel as motivated to get through with it as with the previous ones in the specialization.
par Richard W•
Very well presented. I love the Learn, decide, Build & Manage quadrants. Would love to have more informaiton of how to manage the Snr managers and sponsors as my organisation has not yet transitioned the Snr management team.
par Alberto R N•
It's really worth it!
Some courses are better shown, didactic and prepared than others, but in the end the tips come together in a pleasant way.
Congratulations to the University and Professors, very good work.

Eu gostei bastante do curso. Acredito que é um treinamento interessante se você quer ter uma visão geral sobre diversas metodologias ágeis disponíveis no mercado e entender como poderia aplicá-las na vida real.

I liked every part of this course except one thing (I believe I am the only one who will say this) the interviews were not much useful and I could not complete them till the end with a sharp focus

This course gave me an idea on how to manage an agile team with different approaches and in different situations and learned the key role for each member of the team
par Ruth Y•
This was a good introduction to understanding the structure and terminology to consider when managing an Agile team. Exercises and examples were engaging.
par Janita S•
Good course but I don't think the final tasks that we did and reviewed were not 100% compatible with the course "Managing an Agile Team".
par Caroline L•
This course will benefit anyone who is transitioning into the Agile software approach. It's a great intro for any role on an agile team.
par Lori D•
It is a great course, to learn about agile, and see the diferencies between companies, teams based on their culture o needs.
par Amy M•
Great content, but I felt some sections of the assignments were vague, making them more confusing/harder than needed.
par Marshall S•
finally talks about agile! i feel like this should be the first course in the specialization
par Johannes R•
Very good course. Speaker is knowledgable, but sometimes using terrible (funny) analogies.
par Kristin P•
The learning material is great however the assignments do not have the same level.
par Varun D•
Good overview and examples from real life, the assignments were relevant too
par Olivier G•
Highly interesting, I do recommend the course
Thank you Alex
Quite interesting and useful course for Agile teams

So far the best course set I've taken on Coursera.
