Great program from PMI and its partners ; Interviews with experts on strategy design and implementation are very insightful. Besides this program also provided access to rich collection of HBR papers.

Great course about the strategy design and its implementation. Really good for broad audience not only for C-suite. You will learn about failures and successes, how to turn the design into well-planned implementation, the tools and techniques.

It was really interesting going through the course as a fresher. The course was recommended to me by a colleague and I don't regret the time I have dedicated to this. Thank you to the entire Brightline Team for the good job.

I thought the framework was good and some of the experts opinions were very interesting. I would be interested in a follow up course that went further into some of the topics discussed by the thought leaders.

I stopped after the first week. No real "meat". The instructor was extremely verbose, not well spoken and difficult to understand, since English is not his native language. No real insights. The "big concept" in the first week is that strategies fail because although great effort is put into the design of the strategy, most firms don't consider the most effect way to implement or to deliver. This is no great insight. "A blinding glimpse of the obvious".

The Brightline Coursera Course (2019 version) serves as an assisted discovery when it comes to helping senior leaders and executives bridge the expensive and wasteful gap between strategy design and delivery.

For Change Leaders and everybody working in or impacted by change initiatives, I highly recommend this course. It offers a helicopter view on the forces which are directly impacting your environment. Enriched by the new perspectives offered, it'll allow you to turn valuable insights into skilful action.


- Inspiring case presentations following a “Context. Challenge. Approach.” structure.

- Food for thought offered by leading management innovators, expert interviews (videos) and HBR insight reports (articles).

- A solid base on how to prepare the soil to make good ideas flourish.

What could be improved:

To make the course richer in variety, it would be interesting to have the cases presented by the respective companies.

WHAT'S IN FOR LEADERS who want to see their ideas turn into results?

The Brightline Course dives into the "Strategic & Business Management" dimension of the PMI Talent Triangle, highlighting knowledge of and expertise in the industry/organization.

- For Next-Gen Leaders, the course offers awareness of strategic alignment as a success factor for their teams' work. They will gain a better understanding of the context and business environment their projects are nested in. Asking crucial questions early to anticipate future moves, their team will be able to orient their work towards implementing relevant business value.

- For Project Professionals and Senior Leaders, the course serves as a guided discovery for materials that can also be found on the initiative's website

This course allowed me to be aware of the importance of strategy delivery "connecting" with people. Any new state in an strategy requires to embrace change positively, and also unleash people potential at collective level. That's the course all about, sound simple, but it is very demanding, that's the reason to have the 10 guiding principles. Team-building, focused on high- performing level is also the aim of a sustainable strategy, which redefine itself in a infinite-loop through the culture (ritual) and talent into the organization. Thanks for sharing this initiative openly through this pragmatic course.

This course is nice and well thought and laid out. It provides complete methodology and principles in detail for every one to understand it better in order to implement the strategy design and delivery in the organizations. The course content is too good and very informative. All top level leaders views, case studies, success stories made this course more live and to the current scenario's. This is a must course to study by all senior leaders of the organization, program managers PMO's and portfolio managers who play a major role in strategies delivery.

Fantastic course that makes you aware of the gap existing between the strategy design and the strategy delivery and the huge impact of it for the organizations, by means of a mix of interviews with top global leaders and experts, articles from prestigious publications like HBR, and the explanations from Ricardo Viana. I really liked as well that in order to complete the course, a fictional case has to be worked on, (like the MBA schools) as it allows you to practice all the content provided during the course. Highly recommended course!

Useful course that addresses a relevant area that is still not properly understood by most organisations. Contains many relevant examples. I especially liked the quote 'Strategy is not just a game plan, it's also the game itself,' which aptly sums it up. The final hands-on exercise is indeed useful, as it allows you to put all the principles learned to the test. The case study is indeed extensive and realistic. All in all a great experience. Recommended.

Wonderfully designed course. Covers topics for someone who would start their journey into the area, as well as for those who may have had experience with strategy design and implementation. Very practical tips to implement immediately. A great project at the end to check for understanding, as well as gain feedback from peers! Birghtline's Orgs. Guidelines in summary are wonderful to follow, for all professional decisions in the future!

Thanks to PMI and Coursera for this practical course. The content is rich and applies to various level of learners from beginner to intermediate as well as professionals. I have learnt what strategy is and what it is not. I understand the potential barriers to sucessful strategy delivery and most importantly principles and steps to help bridge this widening gap, in the faces of repidly changing technology. Highly recommend this course

El curso es de aplicabilidad absoluta.

Very good initiative from Brightline Initiative by PMI. Guiding Principles are well explained along with Senior Industry leaders interview which were very apt to the concepts and HBR articles would be very useful for you to understand the concepts clearly. This course really helped me to understand the importance of how strategy design & delivery is equally important. Thanks once again to Brightline & Coursera !

This course provides much overdue insight into how vital strategy implementation is to a company and provides focused principals that can serve as guiding stars to the formation of strategic initiatives that really work to span the gulf between strategy design and strategy implementation. I found it extremely valuable, (especially the case study and final exercise). I highly recommend this course for everyone.

Comprehensive, high-quality content, from the interviews with experts to the Harvard Business Review articles and business examples. The final assessment case study was a really great thinking exercise where the student can apply the principles learned into a real-word scenario. I highly recommend it for senior leaders and those in strategy design or strategy implementation aspiring for senior leadership.

Fantastic course by PMI & partners with a lot of insights into innovative project management and strategy design. Interviews from industry experts and rich HBR collection were the cherry on the cake. The course provides 10 guiding principles that are very effective at every level in an organization and can be used as the magic compass when in doubt.
