TOP REVIEWS FROM STRATEGIC PLANNING AND EXECUTION
Good course. Gives good overview in a structured way of Strategy Planning and Execution. However, it requires more work and of course practise.
Great course, very practical and useful. You can really apply it in real life situations. I like the fact that you brought in Darden graduates.
Good course, but not as strong as the prior 3 courses of the Business Strategy Specialization.
Very insightful and useful - but it is more art than science. Emphasizes that there is no one overarching strategy.
