So far this course is not a good match. Redundancy and filler dialog seems to dominate the course. Hopefully there is valuable information later in the course.

The course explained the importance of budgeting in an easy way. Strangely enough, not many companies take business budgeting seriously. I will try to apply the rules of that course in my company.
