This content seemed more relevant than what I learned elsewhere about how to manage.

An excellent course for those whishing to learn and acquire the knowledge as well as skillsets for leadership in engineering roles (e.g. lead, manager, director etc.) Nancy's professional background and work experiences in major tech corporations provided valuable insights into how leadership is nurtured in those companies. In addition, she skillfully presented these insights into digestible units over several modules. Looking forward to more courses from AWIT. Thank you and best regards!

The concepts in this course are presented very clearly and explained in a way that they can be applied in the real world. The course is aimed at those wanting to move into an engineering leadership role or those wanting to improve on the basics of that role and I think the material is both relevant and well-calibrated for those audiences.
