Great program from PMI and its partners ; Interviews with experts on strategy design and implementation are very insightful. Besides this program also provided access to rich collection of HBR papers.
An excellent course and nicely articulated and delivered by Ricardo Vargas. Really liked the idea of strategy delivery and execution with 10 principles as mentioned in the Brightline initiative...

Wonderfully designed course. Covers topics for someone who would start their journey into the area, as well as for those who may have had experience with strategy design and implementation. Very practical tips to implement immediately. A great project at the end to check for understanding, as well as gain feedback from peers! Birghtline's Orgs. Guidelines in summary are wonderful to follow, for all professional decisions in the future!

Very good initiative from Brightline Initiative by PMI. Guiding Principles are well explained along with Senior Industry leaders interview which were very apt to the concepts and HBR articles would be very useful for you to understand the concepts clearly. This course really helped me to understand the importance of how strategy design & delivery is equally important. Thanks once again to Brightline & Coursera !

This course provides much overdue insight into how vital strategy implementation is to a company and provides focused principals that can serve as guiding stars to the formation of strategic initiatives that really work to span the gulf between strategy design and strategy implementation. I found it extremely valuable, (especially the case study and final exercise). I highly recommend this course for everyone.

Comprehensive, high-quality content, from the interviews with experts to the Harvard Business Review articles and business examples. The final assessment case study was a really great thinking exercise where the student can apply the principles learned into a real-word scenario. I highly recommend it for senior leaders and those in strategy design or strategy implementation aspiring for senior leadership.

It was a very well put together course that highlighted the gap between strategy and execution, lots of great interviews with industry leaders sharing their experiences which was very helpful in understanding the causes and how to address them. Lots of insights and nuggets from these interviews and the course work, very well worth the time spent taking it. Kudos to the creators!!!!

This is a course anyone who plan a career path to C-level must take. The main takeaway for me is " as a Top management we must be committed to implement what we think or design always taking into account the whole organization and be prepared to adapt or modify our strategy based on our organization and customers insights"
Thanks a lot for sharing such as wonderful knowledge

The course is exceptionally good. It gives insight into designing a deliverable transformational strategy. I am particularly impressed by how the course aligns strategy implementation and delivery with its formulation. Team engagement and accountability, innovation and experimenting new ideas with room for early failure to learn fast were such good thoughts and guidances.

This is an excellent course which is very well structured. The sharing of the lesson learned from the top experts of the industry make this course stands out from the rest. The quiz question allows for critical thinking which is a key aspect of the course. The guidelines from Brightline are key tools that can tackle the major problems being faced by the organizations.

Fantastic course by PMI & partners with a lot of insights into innovative project management and strategy design. Interviews from industry experts and rich HBR collection were the cherry on the cake.

Excelente enfoque para ejecutar la estrategia, Paso a paso con esos de estudios te muestra la teoría de que la misma responsabilidad de crear la estrategia se requiere para implementarla y lograr los objetivos de la organización. Naturalmente, la dirección de proyectos es la disciplina de apoyo a la ejecución de la estrategia!

It was a good learning experience. To start with I liked the content flow and its presentation. The speakers were very convincing and the design of the course kept the energy level high. The best part is was the application (quiz/test) and the learning you get through reviewing other participants' assignments. Thank you.

Excellent overview of strategy design and execution. I found it pulled many aspects of past learnings together, causing several light bulbs to come on while I was going through the material. I will use this in my role of executing strategy through the portfolios of programs and projects I manage.

El curso es muy práctico y dinámico. Es ideal para poner en práctica las estrategias de planeación, ejecución e implementación del proyecto. En muchas ocasiones a pesar de tener buenas ideas es difícil su implementación por lo que los 10 principios son una gran herramienta de ejecución.

Loved the entire course and its contents. The HBR Insight report supporting the course was very much complementing the explanation and narrative of Ricardo Triana. The customer user journey and case studies helped understand the course much better. Overall wonderful experience !

A bright and lucid explanation of how to understand and bridge the gap between our dreams, desires (the strategy) and what we will get (the results). The course gives us knowledge and confidence in achieving our goals. One way to create a motto like Pres. Obama "Yes, we can!"
