This course was an exceptional experience where it introduces me to building a data science team, its challenges, nuances and also what kind of approach to take while building and sustaining the team.

Extremely practical and essentially human, this was really interesting to better understand the different roles and how to help data science teams to work together, highly recommended

Why wright a review? Since you do not present them publicly so it doesn't make sense to me to give any feedback. :-)

The content of this course was fine, but the quizzes were very poorly worded. The multiple choice answers were ambiguous and vague, making me spend FAR more time fretting on the interpretation of the phrase "assess a skill used in practice" than on recalling the truth of the course and applying that clearly to an answer. Particularly the Management Strategies and Assembling a Team quizzes were the worst of the set. If the article referenced in the question mentions "gaming the system" TWICE in the text, and that's provided as a possible answer, but that answer is wrong, then the quiz itself fails to accomplish the goal.

Excellent course. All leadership in organizations that are data-driven or taking steps towards being data driven should enroll to this course. The quizzes could be better though.
