The world is dynamic and changing rapidly. In this time, online learning is particularly important in the event of the Covid19 situation. It is easy to navigate and use over time. I learned new management ideas, especially Leadership, Strategic Human Resources Management, and other concepts that will defiantly help in my future endeavors.

I found it to be a very interesting course because you learn how to organize your company, what strategies you should apply in your organization and above all what roles should be differentiated in each type of worker. Evaluate risks, carry out adequate project management, etc. In short, a well explained and very dynamic course

Fantastic! Really concise and insightful, concepts and course material really well sequenced. Professor Lok is an engaging presenter who uses good examples. Really good practice questions and further resources too.

Only minor gripe, is that some of the 'post in the forum' tasks are a bit lame...but still very much worth it!

Easily the best curriculum I've found in terms of Organisational Design. The thematic areas are all relevant and tangible and can be readily applied to real-life situations and organisations. The course is clearly practical in nature and avoids being relevant only for academic purposes.
