Acerca del Curso

The capstone project will consist of three options, and you will complete one of them as part of the course. The first option is working with senior-level executives to help them solve their most pressing leadership challenges. Two (2) senior-level executives from leading organizations will provide detailed descriptions of ongoing leadership challenges that they are currently facing within their organizations. The challenges will be real and current. You will be asked to help the executives think through how best to approach and address their respective leadership challenges. Specifically, you will be tasked with drafting a memo to one of the executives outlining your recommendations for how best to address the leadership challenge. To offer effective advice and counsel, you will need to use course concepts and frameworks to (a) diagnose the fundamental issue(s), and then (b) develop a coherent set of solutions or recommendations. The memos will be evaluated based on how effectively you apply course concepts to diagnose the problem and how well you link your proposed solutions to the diagnosis. The best submissions will be sent to the executives for their review, and each executive will offer feedback that will then be shared with the entire class to advance everyone’s learning. The second option is to identify your own leadership challenge (e.g., at work, at school, in your local community). You should be directly involved in the challenge, and the challenge must align with at least one topic from the specialization. You will develop a presentation where you use course concepts and frameworks to (a) diagnose the core leadership challenge and barriers to effective performance, and then (b) develop a coherent set of solutions or recommendations for your own leadership challenge. The third option asks you to interview an executive of your choosing. In this interview, you will ask questions about the challenges faced by that executive with respect to leading people and teams, as well as the practices used by the executive to address his or her challenges. In your written submission, you will use course concepts to organize the major leadership challenges faced by the executive, highlight the strategies and practices used by the executive to address the core leadership challenges, and then to evaluate the effectiveness of the executive’s practices related to leading people and teams. You can expect to receive staff feedback on your assignment 4 to 8 months after you submit your assignment....

I rarely rate courses, but this one was really great. The instructors present the information in an easy to understand way and peer graded assignments help you solidify what you have learned.

A good learning experience, but it would have been made even better with feedback after completion of the capstone assessment.

About 10 months ago I completed the "Leading People and Teams" specialization.

I choose the "second option" for the Capstone Project. You promise a feed-back on assignment "from 4 to 8 months" after the submission.

Why I haven't received any feedback yet??

Short version: Don't pay the $50 for the specialization because you are unlikely to get feedback.

Long version: The content of the four free modules is excellent and well worth going through. The instructors are great and the information is well-presented and easily applicable. I purchased the capstone program because the description stated that we should "expect feedback" from the faculty on the work we submitted. Now, I have to say that I should have realized that the likelihood of faculty from a top-ranked business school going through and giving individual feedback on an assignment from an online class with thousands of students was probably nil. However, I chose to believe what was written in the description of the course.

It's been over a year since I finished the course and I have gotten no feedback. When I wrote to Coursera to complain, they said "we cannot enforce the Staff for each course to provide the feedback as it is mentioned in the course information."

Don't waste your money supporting a platform that will knowingly promote something that they know they can't make happen.
