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.

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.

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.
