"Computers are useless"
For me, this course didn't live up to the stated purpose. The case studies and examples offered are nice as human interest stories, but they don't get too deeply into the relevant ethical and practical issues. I suppose that is part of the point, that we should all have a hand in imagining those circumstances for ourselves and it will be different for everyone. Still, I didn't really get much out of the information in the way that it was presented. Overall, the course was quite repetitive.
Good. Kind of short and some statements made but didn't get conclusions that I can feel satisfied with.
This is an interesting course. However, it could easily be improved by avoiding repetition of the same examples and also by adding more of them, along with concrete data and facts (easy example for instance Tesla and how fast it became one of the world's highest valued car manufacturer and company in general).
Was able have an better understanding of the 4th revolution. Having a clear understanding as to why jobs are changing. Trends-Enjoying the benefits of technology. Where the future of our children lies. Different types of technology trends.
This is the second that I've completed of yours. Easy to understand and a whole lot of learning. Thanks Peter!
I would like to describe this whole session in just two words: Quite Alarming. This session was based on the battle between Humans and Machines.
This is a very short course and I don't like it too much. It's ok at some point but It is like a movie trailer.
Clear and easy to follow. Covers the main aspects of management consulting which is useful for any career.
This was a valuable course. I found it really expanded my knowledge of management consulting. I could reflect on my own career goals, my skill set, knowledge and experience and whether pursuing management consulting would be something worth pursuing.
This course answers all the questions for someone who wants to know how a career in management consulting is all about. It is explains how diverse management consulting is and how it is a good career to pursue as it makes one an all rounder. Great course from Peter especially for those seeking a career in Management consulting.
I liked the pace, structure and personal experience provided. It provided insightful and implementable recommendations
Definitely yes and thanks Peter for such an insightful course. Looking forward to going through some of your other courses and articles.
Yes it was because i am doing digital banking and most of the things that were said on this video was familiar with what i am doing.
Yes because now I understand the Technology is not invented to replace humans but to help humans do things fast and effective.
It was interesting. I enjoyed the way it was packaged. A simple way to get insights into the topic. It might be good to have a follow on that show how these trends are linked with world of work and how they are being harnessed in different disciplines.
