I found this course so interesting but particularly from my side as a Sales person, the content is really helpful to help advise customers, so that they understand that while I am selling transformational development software, to get to the transformed state, requires a lot of cross functional collaboration and as mentioned in the course; organizational transfer of learning. The management/leadership sentiment is also so important, senior leadership can often approve projects, however in the long term they do not continue to focus on them and support the involved teams and it can certainly play a part in software projects becoming a burden rather than the game changing transformation that was expected!
