Really useful course for Managers, especially technical managers. Since it covers most of the subjects, time may not be sufficient. Explanation for the answers in graded questions will be helpful

The course content was boring in relation to a few of the topics. The instructor was not great in conveying topics as he was too fast. He talks without any expression and that adds to more doubts regarding his lecture. The provider was good.

Questions are good an related. However, the answer to questions (either graded or ungraded) lacks any explanations. Sometimes explanations are required, esp. when there are calculations happening. I liked the sumamries that the professor presents through the course. Sometimes the topics were boring for me as an Engineer.
