Does let you know practices that help in making the right product that is managed right and done right, with retrospective techniques that can be implemented after the project is completed.
In this course, I lean a lot of things based on review and metrics for software, such as sprint iteration, project iteration, daily scrum, project perspective, and many more.

Very good, but I wish for more analysis of what self-destructive metrics mean and how to handle them (who own the metric, etc)
By Ajay C•
Very nice content and presented so nicely. Must read and highly recommended course for all managers and business analysts.
By Seyed M H M•
Generally was a good course although I've expected more metrics for product like HEART and Pirate
By Jacob C•
Great course to learn all about tracking progress in your software project

I learned a lot and it will help me understand the processes much better
By Helen G F•
It was challenging but Coursera made learning easy. Student must focus!
By Sumit G•
Pretty good course, although could have been a bit more exhaustive

It's challenging to teach and learn product management through an online course. You can get an overview of the important topics and learn the theory, but this doesn't enable discussion, exchanging experiences, and forming balanced opinions. A product management does a lot of her/his work by talking (to many different people involved), which is very difficult to train online (it could be done with role playing assignments supported by video conferencing, but I think learning from experienced colleagues in practice is a much better way). The quizzes are often a good way to rehearse the topics that have been explained, but sometimes feel like an extremely simplified black-white view on very nuanced issues.
The best parts of the Software Product Management courses for me were the larger assignments you make that are reviewed by fellow students (getting feedback is very useful and it's also instructive to see what approach your peers took) and the interviews with experienced product managers which offer valuable insights in the complicated situations product managers often have to deal with.
I recommend this course to anyone that is new to software product management and quite new to software development. The course can be a good first step on your path to becoming a product manager, as long as you realize that you will also need a lot of skills that an online course cannot teach you.

I think the lesson about Project Retrospective is too "theoretical" instead of applicable. I don't known n the real world industry outside my country (Indonesia), I have been in few companies and discussing about project retrospective with my colleague in the same fields, this is quite "awkward" to be done.
And I think you should also include more examples of business metrics that widely used for software product like CVR (conversion rate), TPV (total purchase volume), Chunk Rate, etc

I feel the information given in this course would have been better served in parts of other courses. Comparing to other courses in this specialization, this one felt very dull and not useful on its own.
By Han Y W•
Should include recent material. A reference book from 2001 is very out of date, especially in the software world.
By Abdullah S•
Needs improvement. All previous courses are excellent. Not this one, however.
By Hugo A C G d S A•
There was some nice content, but not practical enoough
By Hussein H•
More assignments would help reinforce learning
By Medhat M•
Too boring course...
