TOP REVIEWS FROM DESIGNING THE ORGANIZATION
The course was very comprehensive and easy to understand. I would also like to thank GIES college and Coursera for providing me with enriching learning opportunities. Thank you
Very interesting course. It gives solid foundations for understanding how organization are designed and how to adapt when external changes are faced. Recommended.
This course was good and the professor did a good job explaining content, however, it didn't really seem like useful information to me since it was extremely theoretical.
Good course, but I had a lot of trouble interacting with the app. It would not let me post comments or questions which was a bit frustrating. Going off the app and through the website now!
