For me it was a very nice course, I really enjoyed it and learned from it.

The missing star is only for the certificate :(, I did all the quiz when I was attending course on-time and they were bit easy, however to pay a $72 for me was too difficult knowing that my monthly income is barely below $275, that means about 26% of my monthly income.

Anyway that is the situation of our economy and thank you anyway for the learning chance you are giving us

Excellent introduction to Lean applicated in services.

Great! Week 1 and 2 is so excellent compare to 3 and 4.

Great course. Gives you both the philosophy and essential toolbox of Lean.
