Good but should come after the Managing Data Analysis for understanding better what the people you hire are actually going to do. Preventing the "Dilbertification" of the data science manager.

Great course, learned lots about building and leading a data science team; and also some tips on keeping teams motivated and ensuing communication and collaboration works well.
