Very challenging yet worth it. If you are in an administrative position in an organization (especially education) you will get some great perspectives/understandings from this course. Take good notes!
This course provides in-depth analyses of a host of organizational theories and their application in real life. The dissection of each case and the applicability of the theories are really insightful.

Excellent journey through different organizational theories useful to Analyse organizational development issues. Lots of relevant examples. Having a few practical tools for analysis to make academic concepts readily applicable would have been helpful.

Very ilustrative. I had some problems with the quizzes and final test, as there were many normative value-driven answers that in my vow can not be answered only with right or wrong. This is a basic problem of Coursera, at least in my experience.

I really enjoyed the course, the teacher was great and content very interesting. i would say though that learners shoul be made aware that they should know the textbook in great details to be successful at the final exam.

This course is one of the best course which takes you to different perspectives in an organization. I didn't think it will have those many modules. All are very helpful and the professor teaches clearly. Thank you.

its an excellent course. i liked the end exam as well as sufficient depth in knowledge is required to pass this . this forced me to go through the course once again and i am thankful that I went though it again.

Very interesting to take a course from a Stanford Professor. Just wondering if this is equivalent to a course attained from the university itself by attending physical classes or at least less-equivalent!
By Jay S•
Very interesting theories and well explained. Only area where this could be improved is diversity in examples. Most of the examples are related to education which became confines your thinking.

It's a good course providing broad overview of the field and details into the important theories. Lots of case studies which I didn't find very relevant but still - nice to have them

Thoroughly enjoyed this basic overview of Organizational Analysis. It was a fun and interesting foray into what much of my major in school will look like.

Very complete course, maybe need more applied examples about other organizations different to education, but in general an excellent course, thank you

Excellent course, gives a broad view on how organizations are formed. Theories guidelines on how they could could be adapted to the VUCA world.
Very good course with many examples. I can recommend the course.
It is a bit long in comparison to other Coursera formats but worth the time!

I wish the course was dealt with in a simpler language rather than large words considering the international exposure to the course.

The course provides a great basic understanding of how to analyze an organization. It provides great tools for future analysis.

A really good course for making sense of a lot of things that happen at a macro level in an organisation.

Very useful course, but I received the certificate without the logo of Stanford University, why?
By Turgut Ç•
The number of final exam questions is too many. Videos should not exceed 10 minutes.

Look forward to examples that are more related to the profit-making corporate world.
Well structured course. Great materials and easy to follow teaching methodology
