The course was very interactive, useful and interesting. I can definitely apply the knowledge that I gained out of this course to my day on day work on Software Management. Kudos to the production and
Though it is an introductory course, it is packed with great information about managing a software product. I enjoyed the course, and I am moving on with the next course on the SPM specialization.

I will continue watching the courses in the Specialization, hoping that maybe the next ones will be useful. But overall, I would say that they course is not really oriented at the real world. I appreciate the quality of the videos and the animations. But the purpose of the animations and the concept of the course are still not clear to me. Course seems to pay a lot of attention to the Agile without clearly explaining how Agile works. Seems to be almost a commercial to the Agile approach, without any good argument why should you use it.
I found quizzes, in-video questions and animations to be barely relatable to the course. Most of the things that are asked in the quizzes are not explicitly explained throughout the course, answers have to be rather guessed that learnt or extrapolated.
Also, in real world, SPM job requires not just the knowledge of the waterlike theory, but a lot of tech skills that are not mentioned in the course.

Although the instructors were great, the course was good however I personally expect many more! the materials covered in this course are simply accessible and "free" via a simple search on first page of google or agile manifesto website itself. This course need to be more comprehensive and interactive.
Another problem was the assessments , they were not only covered in some cases such as "right product" and "done right" but also were about the upcoming courses!! This is were I believe that when somebody pay or ask for financial aid for this course expect a wider range of materials to be covered.
Once again I appreciate the effort and wish the best for the team.

The course seems to be a course in Scrummerfall, i.e., a mixture of Scrum and Waterfall. After having briefly discussed the Agile Manifesto, which emphasizes things like "People over processes," what is the first thing that they dive into? Processes where they say things like "Requirements combined with processes are the backbone of any successful software project." I would disagree. Requirements and processes are important, but people and communications are the backbone of any successful software project.
I'm dropping this specialization and searching for another course that really follows Agile methodologies.

I generally enjoyed it and found it easy to follow.
However, although it was only an introduction to software PM, I still found the course a bit too basic and I would have liked to receive deeper information about different tools available to start, process, plan, and monitor software PM projects.
I would have liked to receive info about DevOps too.

The instructors seem like they are reading from a teleprompter, and it feels like they are robots. Also very bad transition editing between scenes. All instructors should use more body language, and explain the info as if they where giving a life class, not some verbatim script. Other than that is fine.

Only the link agilemanifesto.org has real value in this course. The rest is self-PR and "water". I see no reason paying for the sertificate and I am not convinced further cources of this specialization will deliver greater value.

Dry principles without real life examples and exercises. You can passed the quiz by just reading online or have basic project management experience. Disappointed.
por Erick S•
A little disappointed in this course, it would have been better suited for the first part to a larger course other than a week long introduction to th subject.
Informative, but I kind of knew a lot of the material. Was hoping to learn something concrete and useful. I'm hoping the next courses will be informative.

Too basic even for someone coming from a biology background into programming. It looks like it is targeted for students finishing high school.
por Mathias D•
Very, very basic... more like fishing for customers to apply for the other courses. Yet, still quite the motivated and enthusiastic team.
por Микола Г•
Basically it'a like an advertising for the future courses which will give you deeper information
por Kate B•
Extremely basic. Spent more time introducing the tutors than telling us much about the topic.
por Brian D•
Defiantly the worse MOOC I have taken. Does the specialisation need such a long introduction?
por Dmitry S•
An extra long introduction and a lot of sales pitch. Quite a limited value for beginners.
Requesting to have in-depth of Agile working process with real time examples
por Hameed A•
The quizzes are about the course structure and not product management.
por Igor A•
Not really about Product Management, but about Project Management

The Course could have been covered in a more interesting way
por Mitesh P•
Small introduction. I was expecting some thing concrete.
por Peter A•
Informative but not monitored or up to date
por Oleg K•
Low on content. Lacks of specific actions
por BAI X•
Too general without any specific skills
por Mostafa I•
need more examples to be more specific
por Olga G•
Could be more concise.
