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

Seemed like his personal ideas. I didn't see any indication the information was based on any research or empirical study.

Course materials are not organized. Too much talk with too little substance.

Rudimentary HR / new supervisor level information. Not specific to Data Science either.

No me gustó, dado que la información no es clara y no se puede avanzar de forma adecuada debido a que las evaluaciones son muy confusas.

Should not be part of a course "Executive Data Science". very basic and no real insight into what makes a data science team different (if indeed it is).
