Great course! Great content! well structure, well organize, inspiring, interesting topics. It is one of the best course I ever had on edX so far! I have little prior knowledge when I decided to taking the course. The course gave me a broader view of how digital transformation is shaping every business nowadays as well as insights and examples on the 3 players, incumbent, tech entrepreneur, and digital giants. It was taught through videos, ORA exercise which allow you to think, and very active discussion forum. The content of the course was easy to understand, the exercise was fun, the course is very interactive. I would like to recommend this course to anyone who interest in Digital Transformation and how the technologies will shape our future when the time goes by, also the course will give you the way to becomes successful players and be able to stay in the competitive markets.

Really good course, even for those only just starting on the Digital Transformation journey. The course outlines the importance of digital transformation, the players in the digital world and the direction that companies should take. The course structure/format is well thought through, with relevant case studies, examples, videos, course work/exercises to make anyone relate to the subject matter with ease. I would and have recommended this course to many people with a common interest in Digital Transformation. Well done to the organizers and instructors!

More hot air than real substance. Instead of providing true insights and some deep dive into a very interesting and important topic the Prof kept dropping buzzwords. I hope that the next edX course I might take will be more meaningful and educational. I really like the concept of these online courses and the interface of edX, but the course about digital transformation strategy was rather disappointing.

It showed me a very big scope of improvement in my workplace and the way we as a firm, thought. The transformation to a digital company has never been easier, thanks to EdX and this course. 10/10 and would definitely recommend.

The course content was excellent and it gave me a broader overview of Digital Transformation across different industries. One of the best parts of it were the three major players: incumbent, tech entrepreneur, and digital giants this area touched on driverless cars amongst other things and also the area on IOT. I would highly recommend this course to anyone and it will show you how broad this field really is. The instructor was very clear and concise and provided a great overview of each stage with the ORA exercise which gave you the opportunity to think and be active on the discussion forum.

The course had very tight timeframe that stressed me a bit since I am also working. Sometimes questions in the course was somewhat not so clear and this could lead to errors in answering. I am not English mothertongue please consider also this when you set timeframes for questions. Deadlines are not always clear to the student, please make them more clear and schematic.

This course provided a great way to learn about digital transformation in a structure manner as well as it included some terrific examples to illustrate digital transformation in practice. These examples included how GE is using digital technologies to reduce maintenance costs, downtime and other expenditures of time and money for it's locomotive customers.

This inspired me to think every possibility to digitalize. Focus on future, focus on the trend. The new digital transformation strategy will be one of the most advantage capability for the business to survive and advance than others in the next 10 years. Today, top 10 biggest companies in the world, 6 are digital industry (software, internet orientated). 4 from US (Apple, Google, MS, FB) and 2 from China (Ali, Tencent).

All of the content, instructor and provider in the course we're excellent and provide value which every organisation which wants to play a significant role in the future must attend and assess for exploitation in its plans. Not only it provides the concepts and real life examples it also gives the methodologies and approach to achieving them.

Very Good Great Course and I hope that this is only a start to a prospect for higher level courses in Digital Mindfulness in both Business and LifeStyle, for there is great potential for the Digital Realm to reduce Poverty and improve the quality of life for all Humanity, as we become one in a Virtual World of togetherness, to overcome Planet Earth and Humanities challenges.

Course content was certainly good and extensive. However, I felt that the ability to apply for all industries based on examples provided was not trivial. I would suggest to please look into providing more smaller examples across multiple industries rather than 2-3 extensive case studies in specific industries.
