Each & every topic discussed in details. This course should be made compulsory so that everyone gets understanding on inventory, continuous improvement, value stream mapping, supply chain management.

Great baseline for operations management. I wish however that the course was more balanced, with less concentration of such important content (particularly VSM) on week 4.

Overall the content is good, but a lot more can be improved by using a teleprompter rather than adlib speaking. If what to be said was prepared in advanced:

+More clarity in the content

+Less time to consume/More concise

Maybe consider hiring a news cast director for all the lessons. Thank you!

considering the argument, it should probably be more concise and better structured to be as unambiguous as possible. Introduce more definitions and clear associated explanations and less story telling.

Very lengthy videos. The content is great, but it would be nice if it were presented in a more concise manner. Videos were hard to follow. Peer review assignments were nice.

Not a good professor. Makes the material very dry by droning on and on and makes it hard to concentrate during lectures. Often makes simple concepts very complicating. This course needs a new professor that can get their point across clearly.

I think the concept is very generic and not really helping in answering the questions given, even though that the questions are good. I could have learnt more from wikipedia directly.

There have been multiple issues with the course content and quizzes not accepting correct answers.
