Well organised and with a lot of commitment from the faculty. I would like to see deeper discussions on most of the topic. It felt like the faculty was trying to oversimplify ideas. Thank you

Wonderful course. Introduces major important areas and principles. Valuable interviewes with lead industry experts. Some lectures are hard to follow (week 5 and 7) dues to speaker's pronounciation and language speed - for that I wish Coursera did a better auditing. And concerning content, I hoped for more detail

The course enriched my knowledge and made me more interested in pursuing my PhD in this field along with the technical innovations, as a sub-field. I would like to thank each instructor team member for their effort in preparing, directing and presenting the course in its final shape as we see it now.

You can get a very good overview of what the innovation management is. The course is well organized as it touches upon major issues, and does not dive deep into details. It is indeed a good course for those who are going to learn Innovation management for the first time.

Great overview of the innovation management process within companies. I found the interviews with representatives from firms such as Phillips quite valuable. This course content should be standard knowledge for leaders and managers at all levels of an organisation.

Very good course. The topics are well streamlined, anchoring on actual experiences. The Excercises promote elaboration on the topics covered. If one is willing to take advantage of the course, and devote a suitable amount of time to it, they are instructive.
