It was a great course which help you to gain knowledge about how to run the company in a good manner and the readings are in a good quality as well as sir. julian birkinshaw was explaining so clearly

I loved this course from the very first lessons and, even if dated, served as a mirroring as a senior manager, I was able to rehabilitate old and new strategies to improve my personal relationship with modern challenges.
I was also able to reformulate the merit criterion for the people who are part of my team.
in short, a trip that by no means failed to thrill me so much that in 6-8 days I completed the entire program, studying even 6 hours consecutively per day
By Nick N•
Professor Julian certainly knows his stuff and goes through the material in a logical structured way, pulling the lessons and themes together effortlessly. There are also some great contributions from both other professors and good case studies from those in organisations who have effected great changes. You have to mark other peer assignments and good way of learning to give constructive feedback and to gauge your perspectives and performance, against others.

The course was excellent and very comprehensive, yet thorough and clear. I would very much like to listen to the continuation of this course as well and get into the subject a little deeper. Julian is a great lecturer who understands perfectly and respects what he teaches. The course consists of well-balanced units and is easy to follow. If possible, it would be good to have a little more independent creative work that would be evaluated and mentored.

Very well structured, the information is clear and relevant. Julian is very articulate and has wide up-o-date knowledge on the ways companies are/ need to evolve. The course has helped me understand that I need to change with the changing management forms. I wish organisations would share their structures in a simple adaptable manner to employees, when they join. I would like to do that when I get the opportunity.

I am always looking for insights about business organization. I enrolled in this course because of it.
My surprise is that Professor Julian Birkinshaw provides a complete framework of analysis in which we can assess both the current situation and the possible evolution of the organization.
The result is precious and gives me a lever to go deeper into how to the performance of an organization.
By TT Y•
Interesting course that helps me understand more about the management models of organizations and its transitions in light of technology and social changes. This awareness is important to help me consciously seek to understand what organization management needs and how we as managers should react and make decisions in a more appropriate way to satisfy the needs of the people, and the future.
By A. C D S•
Nice course. Clear and well explained. It shows how many manager out there know very little what they are doing. It is an eye opener and validates what you as an employee might be feeling when you work in a dysfunctional organization like I did quite a bit. I also think that it is the type of course every manager or anybody with a leadership position within the a organization should take.
By Ademola A•
This course is of critical importance to anybody that hopes to have better handling of the emerging organizations of the future. It can be applied across the board for multi-vocational individuals. The facilitation was top-notch. There should be an update to current realities, especially with the present global challenges. What was looked at as the future is not with us in the present.
By Ricardo S•
Avalio o curso como excelente por seu nível de detalhe nas abordagens tradicionais e alternativas para a gestão de uma empresa hoje com uma visão realista de busca de equilíbrio e sem radicalismos.
O curso traz exemplos reais mostrando a teoria sendo aplicada na prática que permite que você possa se identificar e ter insights de como usar no seu dia dia os conceitos ensinados.

By Andrea D M•
Simple yet in-depth course about Management. Although the idea of deconstructing Management into several dimensions isn't new, Prof. Birkinshaw was able to explain every detail of his view on the course's 4 dimensions. From concepts, to examples that back up these concepts, I was able to learn the core ideas of how to Manage. More precisely, how to Manage a Company of the Future.
By Leonard F•
A great course which I would thoroughly recommend all those in managerial/leadership positions to do.
Innovative and flexible so able to learn at your own pace especially in our increasingly busier lives. Most of my learn was do on my commute to work.
J. Birkinshaw is an incredible commuicator/presenter and depth of knowledge on this subject ultimately makes the course what it is
By Chris C•
Great, easy introduction into how work is rapidly changing and how we can prepare for it. Good frameworks on describing the different types of businesses-traditional vs alternative, and details under various aspects of each. Lots of real-world examples. Passionate instructor. The course is similar to a short, perhaps week-long/summer MBA-level course, good value for the time!
By Ibragimova R•

Thanks a lot for making it free otherwise I couldnt get a certificate.

Very concise, but extremely helpful and interesting. I would have loved to have some more weeks to deepen some aspect further. I will read the referenced books. Unfortunately the blog was not very active, but I will check time to time if some interesting topics are discussed further. Thank you so much and I hope to see more in this area from the London Business School!
By Shane K•
I found this course very enlighting. It gave a brief insight into why we manage companies in a predominantly traditional way, the pro's and con's of such systems and what could be possible by exploring the unthinkable.
Thank you to the professor Julian Birkinshaw for presenting the syllabus in such an easy manner. I enjoyed it.
All the best

Dr. Julian Birkinshaw is just an erudite Professor! I learned a LOT from this course that I can share to my students. The discussions on Traditional and Alternative Principles of Management and the underlying concepts with concrete examples gave me a better perspective on how to manage a company. Bravo! Looking forward to more courses with you. Thank you so much.
This course helped me understand how to manage the future company. I really enjoyed this course because it was not just theoretical, I found ways of adapting things I've learnt to my current situation where I'm having to manage my colleagues in the present outbreak of a pandemic disease.
Thank you very much Prof. Birkinshaw for such a useful and engaging course!

This is a fantastic program that I have recommended to all lot of friends and will register my senior management team to undertake. I have learnt a lot and broaden my understanding of management, managing teams, creating a new management structure for my business. Thank you London Business School for the program and our facilitator for the brilliant delivery
By ruben g•
Worth every minute! This course has given me perspective on how i can better lead my team by giving them sufficient freedom to manage their own time and deliverables. This course is a step in the right direction on finding the balance between emergence and hierarchy which i believe is the best way on how to bring success to my team and to our organization!

Thoroughly enjoyed doing this course. Julian was an excellent teacher, and his videos were spot on! I have learnt a lot in terms of management models particularly for our times, including our extraordinary Corona times. I think much of what Julian proposes in the hybrid model will actually take off in our post-corona business world. Thanks again. Cheers.
