Great program from PMI and its partners ; Interviews with experts on strategy design and implementation are very insightful. Besides this program also provided access to rich collection of HBR papers.

This course was great combination of academic and practical guiding principles. For me the interview with leaders, in which we had a chance to link their action into Brightline Guiding Principles was the highlight of the course.

I strongly recommend this course! It's a very well structured program with very interesting and useful contents for people that wants to make a difference. It probably sounds obvious that strategies once developed need arduous execution to become a reality, right? Well. that's not exactly what happens to most of organizations nowadays. The 10 Guiding Principles when effectively applied, bridge the gap between strategy definition and strategy delivery.

Thanks Brghtline Initiative! Thanks Coursera!

As part of the Strategic Division at my organisation, I find this course very helpful in drilling down the concept of strategy design and implementation especially since I am from the creative background. Acquiring the knowledge on strategic thinking really helps me a lot to stay relevant with both my work and career. Highly recommended! (I've actually shared it with the whole organisation the moment I read about it on The Economist last year)

This course is the need of the hour for many organisations. Excellent concept, particularly the concept of 10 guiding principles. A Principle is like a magnetic compass which will always show the true north wherever a person goes on this earth. Similarly, these 10 guiding principles proposed by Brightline will transcend geography, culture and race. thank you Brightline !
