Although I understand this is an introduction to operation management, I expected more than this presentation. There are not slide and diagram representation to deliver the idea, the facilitator's presentation not too strong, as I expected more. I hope it gets better as I progress with the course.
The course is an eye opener to what I am already doing but having a better definition makes it more understanding and interesting
If the course context were text module, it would be great for the remote area students to learn more easily,properly.
A good foundation into operation management. The voice dictation does not fit with what is being discussed in the presentation in some slides and needs to be improved.
Highly recommended course. Easy to understand, informative and very well organized. The course is full of practical examples and valuable materials for anyone who wants to enhance their skills. Really enjoyed it. Thank you, Nikola!
Good course. I really enjoy it. If someone looking for basic knowledge about operations management this is course for this person.
Explains basics to operations that I was not aware of. I did not rate 5 yet because I have not felt like I personally can apply some of these techniques at the moment, but this can change as I approach the further sections.
Very basics of management. Doesn’t dive too deep but gives a proper review especialy for those who have already learned the subjects before.
