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

Some helpful suggestions but too much content on general, common sense management principles. Should be more focused on specifics of data science.

A lot of open doors if you have management experience but provides some overview of what to take into account specifically for a data science team

This class might not be designed for people who have had years of managerial experiences in a large organization.

The information is useful, but I think the five courses in the specialization could be merged into a single one.

Informative but many of the insights apply to good managers in general; not just for data science teams

As having experience managing researcher the subject is not completely new, so it can seems long.

Good interesting material but the quizzes were badly designed and did not test concepts well.

Added value is highly dependent of your experience with data analysis or data engeneering

There could be more work in the assignments in this course. The Quizzes are very simple.

Good on understanding roles each has to play. but very lengthy to explain those.

Great idea and syllabus.
The videos are too short and missing some explanations.

Probably, I wouldn't have a course just about how to hire/build a data team.

needed more depth, which still could have been achieved in a 1-week format

A little dense on theory. Also a bit dated for certain parts I would say.

The courses in the specialization are - in my opinion, excessively short.

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.

The explanation of roles is clear. So are other remarkt / piffalls / do's and don'ts. But those are valid for all specialist functions
Couple of remarks:
(1) The target audience seems to be the data manager, rather than any executive (C/ C-1 level) of function (HR) dealing with building a data science team.
(2) With regard to management and organizing, I missed the "academic" level (organisational design) nor did it help in setting up data science (where / how to start ?).

I'm not sure if the material presented in this course warranted a whole separate course (even if it only was one week). It probably could have been inserted in various segments of a larger data science specialization throughout the classes. Most of the topics discussed should be common knowledge to a mid-level manager of data science or even strategic marketing in general.

Many things were unwanted ....for example Assembling team or On-boarding - are common for all the teams. There was nothing new from Data Science point of view. If you replace the word 'Data Science' by 'Any Project' then also the above mentioned module will have same meaning. Hence I did not like this module.
