- The course book is weird. It is just repeating the same thing over and over again and it is impossible to distuingish the different chapters. It is full of discussion and no real fact.

- Need to come with some new concepts. Teaching us the same concepts three timed in 5 years doesn"t bring much added value. Make a course about marketing and ourchaing that have a new perspective instead. Something that we can bring with us to work life, e.g. negotiation thoery.» (Fair)
- Many things where from former courses. The only interesting part was the assignments, or at least A. In my opinion this assignment could have been a bigger part of the course.» (Fair)
- I think that the information described was good, but I missed the question HOW? How can you work to improve things? How should you achieve it? » (Fair)
- Hard to understand what is really important in this course. There are some new concepts, but i whole there are much repetition from other courses.» (Adequate)
- Very good course. This has been the best course of the masters so far. » (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Business game, Seminars are very good»
- Seminars»
- The assignments»
- The seminars, even more seminars would be good. The guest lectures was also good.»
- seminars, and the lecture of computer industry evolvement.»
- Seminars, but as I said earlier, don"t have slear expecations on what answers you like to the qustions. Isn"t much of a discussion then.»
- the coursebook tend to repeat things in the different chapters»
- seminars and business runner »
- The seminars and assignment B.»
- Case 1-3, but still optional.»
- Assignment A»
- The seminars have been very interesting!»
- Business runner game, seminars and group works (both of them)»
- Businessrunner,seminars,guest lecturers»
- 2 assignments»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Exam. Is that really the best way of presenting knowledge in this topic?»
- The course literature»
- More differntiation of the lectures. The slides are very alike. More cases that illustrates real examples as made in seminars.»
- The course book! Not good at all.»
- Less articles and a more relevant book.»
- the course book»
- Do not use the book, just explain the most important cases, such as the roll rack case.»
- The weights between assignments/exam. Assignment A should be larger and therefore give more credit.»
- the exam questions were too open and I was rellay tired of writing the same stuff to the exam that we had read from literature and discussed at school. It was not possible to write everything necessary with 4h, because every question had many various angles to look from.»
- The ammount of articles was too high! The forced group constellation was not good. I ended up being in a poorly working group, and this affected the entire course learning experience.»
- The book. I want to have more practical information in addition to articles of strategies and how the resources ideas could be implemented to reach a result.»
- More points on the assignments»

16. Additional comments

- Loose the exam and put more effort into seminars and termpapers»
- --»
- Even though the examples used were EXCELENT, later on the course when talking about resource interfaces and so on it gets too theoretical. For me, more real life examples are needed in the last part of the course to connect them to the concepts but otherwise excelent selection of everything else.»
- Very good course and deserve to study! Hope more interaction between students and tutor in the lectures.»

- Did not agree on that the game reflected real life at all. Was a fun section of the course but did not give any understanding that was useful for the assignments or the exam. Did not "get" any credits or benefits from participating.» (Small extent)
- I did not see the connection to the course. The game was interesting as a business simulation. But, the network perspective etc. that we"ve been talking about during the course was not at all visible.» (Small extent)
- It is a very fun dynamic for the group, i think everybody enjoys competition but the businessrunner was only focused on 1 company and not it"s network. Also, the background should be explained better at the beggining since as most of us have industrial management and engineering as background some concepts are different for us than for the business world.» (Some extent)
- More information about the game before running it could be good. It took some years (in the game) for me to understand.» (Great extent)

- haven"t participated» (?)
- Did use a lot of knowledge that I have learned in previous courses.» (Large extent)
- Why do you use the same questions as previous years? It is unfair for the students not having access to those exams, due to lack of knowledge of how the system works. If that is the case you should hand out all the old exams and prepare the students that there will be the same questions next year as well. » (Large extent)
- again, maybe the questions were too open» (Great extent)
- The exam was well balanced, good questions!» (Great extent)
