- Before the course I thought it would be exiting but now I"m only glad that it is over. It feels like all the different momements in the course was there just to show that there are many different ways of teaching. Sometimes more lectures would have given a much better understanding of the subject than just have many different moments to pass. And also how can a course like this, an elective course at master level have such different level of the students? this made some of the moments very boring.» (3)
- to much courseparts och alldeles för låg nivå på kompetens bland framförallt utbytesstudenterna..» (3)
- With my background from I the number of new topics and the depth of the topics were not what I was hoping for. But nice structure of the course.» (3)
- Interesting lectures and good content. The literature seminairs was interesting» (4)
- It was really good, except that it appears that every possible alternative for evaluating the performance of a student is used in the course which is quite a lot for a 7.5 HEC course.» (4)
- Everygthing was chunked in very few lectures and the book concepts weren"t touched» (4)
- Covers the project process very well. » (4)
- I was expecting more, perhaps because of the intense classes in first couple of weeks, and than no classes at all at the end (excluding the literature seminars)» (4)
- The course has mostly focused on the theoritical part of the project management and since project management is something that should be learned in real world i think instead of interviews its better to do something else like cooperation in some projects. » (4)
- Very interesting, and learning! but more demanding than "other" master cources» (4)
- I would have liked to have more lectures.» (4)
- more lectures would be beneficial» (4)
- the course was informative but the workload was a lot» (4)
- Intensive but extremely effective and well-structured» (5, Very good)
- This has been one of the most valuable courses that I have taken at Chalmers. The workload has though been much to high. Without the home exam it might have been more reasonable. There is no possibility to take another as demanding course at the same time, and that means that this course is over its head on workload.» (5, Very good)
- Various opportunities to develop our knowledge and analytic thinking and also improving English through heavy writing work, discussion and presentation.» (5, Very good)
- The course is at good quality. We learned how to apply theory to analyze real world problem aiming at to suggest insightful solutions. Although, lots of reading and writing, I think it"s worth for.» (5, Very good)
- I learnt a lot of new information» (5, Very good)
- Being my first IBB course, I was very satisfied! » (5, Very good)
- This was my last course out of four in the economics minor I have taken, and this was by far the best one of them.» (5, Very good)

- Well, I think even though the course was really heavy in terms of hand ins, the knowledge given was not appropriate for a master level course as I had already learnt almost all the headings in a bachelor"s course named Project Control and Management. For example the AOA was explained in the course but the AON was not while I knew both from the previous course and I was expecting to learn much more about leadership and management given that this was a coutse in the I-department of Chalmers. But the seminars were really really good and appreciable in this case and I learned quite a lot from them.» (3)
- there are a lot of common themes from all of the courses. » (3)
- With my background from I the number of new topics and the depth of the topics were not what I was hoping for. » (3)
- (in the end everything feels is commonsense)» (3)
- Much more work than the actual learning...» (3)
- Useful book, seminars and book.» (4)
- I learn a lot, especially how to write a formulate ideas and write a report. However, i still need more improvement in this, so I rate myself 4 =)» (4)
- just by working on the project, and in the specific field of the project.» (4)
- Depends on which area I go in to, I find them to be very different of importance.» (4)
- Very forceful learning, which was good! » (5, Very much)

- some lessons more would be prerable in order to explain critical arguments of the book.» (3)
- how can your grade to some extent be based on what you know after 3 weeks of the course? the questions of the basic text concerned topics I learned so much more about after the test. is the grade then reflecting my knowledge? » (3)
- One thing that I found a little tricky was that some had the second litterature seminar first. This made some of us read the wrong litterature.» (3)
- But a lot of times the information could have come earlier and more clearly structured. It was not stated anywhere the dates of the home exam and this course evaluation could also have come earlier. Some times it felt that you did not respect our time, when you say it is a tough course you can at least give us the structural conditions to make it easier.» (4)
- It has a good structure, but again the lectures can be discussed... Maybe spread out, but i understand it is made like that due to the basic test.» (4)
- I didn"t get that my first seminar was seminar number 2, but other than that it was pretty straightforward.» (4)
- In the beginning of the course it was quite confusing however, in the middle of the course or something around there it started to get clear.» (4)
- The teachers were very good in transferring the information to the students and the book was really well written as well as the very well-structured seminars.» (5, Easy to follow)
- Very thoughtful and well prepared structure to help student reach goals» (5, Easy to follow)

- I think the pace was quite ok, except that as I mentioned before, the volume of the hand ins was too much: exam, home exam, team-work, research project report, research project presentation, seminar 1, seminar 2.» (3)
- I actually like having an early dugga since you then have material to analyze the reports with» (3)
- As expected, because of the warnings from the faculty, that it is an overwhelming class with a high workload.» (3)
- Project presentation and hand out of home examination could be earlier. Due to the fact that I also take other courses, the home examination just interrupt with other studies.» (3)
- several (too many) examining activities » (3)
- The pace wasnt too fast, but it was still alot to do» (3)
- Moderately fast but managerable» (4)
- With the text-book exam so early I had to spend more than 50% of my time on this course and let the other course fall behind a bit. But after the exam the pace was well balanced.» (4)
- It was hard to get something qualitative from the company we studied in such a short time.» (4)
- My personal opinion is, that this course had a higher pace than most other courses I have read. I guess it had to do a lot with seminars and so on.» (4)
- having 300 pages read in the first two weeks is so fast without a related teaching areas.» (5, Too fast)

- Have you heard about sending importan information by e-mail? especially for the home exam when the information was updated on the homepage, you do not check it several times a day.» (1, Very poor)
- Late openings of file hand-in etc.» (2)
- Since I was in a group where our supervisor was not located in Sweden(!) it was not always that easy to get hold of him. And when answers were needed with short notice, Per refused to answer and pointed us towars our supervisor, which was not available. This was really not an ideal way of handling it.» (2)
- Information was not distributed in time! The information about the home-exam should have been available a lot earlier. Now a lot of rumours circulated in class! Also, if things should be uploaded on the homepage then the link has to be available earlier than 5 hours before deadline.» (2)
- I think the home exam also should be included in the schedule.» (2)
- Some information came out late, for example the direct information of the literatur seminairs» (3)
- Dividing groups caused some problems» (3)
- However some of the instructions like for literature seminars were not very clear» (4)
- Too little time, from the actual feedback of the basic test until the day for the resit examination. » (4)
- Although, more information about the exam in advance could have been appreciated, since nobody really knew anything about the exam uptil the day of distribution.» (4)
- The only thing I"d like to comment on was the consultations that we had. I felt that our supervisor wasn"t prepared for the course at all, even though he did his best to read our paper and comment on such things. But when we refered to the course-PM or project-PM it seemed like he had not read it.» (4)
- The supervisor was a bit too busy with other things at times. Perhaps it would be good to book supervision in advance to a greater extent.» (4)
- It was very very good and so different from my department and I appreciate it, specially the fast email responds from the supervisors and Per.» (5, Very good)
- Course homepage was updated quickly and handout was well distributed» (5, Very good)
- I think our supervisor was one of the best supervisors I have had.» (5, Very good)

- Since I was expecting more in a master course, I should answer "no" to this question but since the seminars were something totally new to me and I learnt quite a lot from them I can say "yes" at the same time. Especially the implicit knowledge gained in the course about how to do conduct a research project and analysis of related articles was very valuable.» (2)
- I expected to get more of "best practice" techniques in project managemnet » (3)
- content ok, level of knowlege amongst participants not enough» (3)
- i did not expect much , but was good even though it is supposed to be a management subject.» (4)

- ( it sounded like there is lots but may be .. )» (2)
- very demanding because of the limited time for everything» (4)
- There are many different types of examination which was quite demanding.» (4)
- It was quite demanding, especially with the early book test and so on, but I must say the thing that took it a bit further were the seminars. They were quite good indeed but they were also a bit irritating. They became a obstacle when you actually wanted to work with the project report.» (4)
- Way to much to do, especially since the home exam and the basic test almos covered the same things.» (5, Very demanding)
- Very demanding in terms of work load, not knowledge.» (5, Very demanding)
- Remove the home exam.» (5, Very demanding)
- The course was too demanding. Usually a course has one or two or maximum three ways of evaluating the students while this course had 5 different ways which is too much for just 7.5 credits. 1. exam 2. home exam 3. seminar 4. research project 5. project presentation» (5, Very demanding)
- It was very demanding! Most of all due to issues in the Research project group. I for one, do not appriciate the way of formation of the groups and I think that more time was spent on trying to explain stuff to the other in the group who had a real hard time with the language! I do not understand really how they can get in at chalmers when they do not understand english!! It makes life so much harder for the swedish students since they have to take on a lot heavier workload than actually needed and the time is spent on things that does not improve their skills in the subject of interest.» (5, Very demanding)
- Too many tasks and examinations. Litterature test, seminars, project work and home exam is too much. One of them could be removed or done in an less demanding way.» (5, Very demanding)
- Loads of writing and reading » (5, Very demanding)

- You have two number 3 as responses here, no 4. » (3)
- a bit difficult because of weak background, but well structured course was helpful to improve background gradually» (3)
- more on organizational theory ... hard for engineering students to understand and analyse critically» (3)
- there are two number threes in the answers on this question. My answer should be 4.» (3)
- This is graded upon the material during the cours and not including the home exam, can"t really have opinion about that since I do not know my grade.» (3)
- too much pressure and even not balanced. having the whole book and slides for the exam and just 20 points is too much pressure. in such courses getting a good grade is so much depended on other peoples as well.» (5, Very difficult)

- More an examination of how much work you could put in during the course periode, and not how good you learned the subject.» (1, Not at all)
- Would have preferred less stress or emphasis on Mayler)» (2)
- It was too much details in questions like names of the authors (which for some reason we need to remember) for different models and graphs which if you don"t remember you can not answer the question. Also some questions seemed to be structured in such a way as they were designed to mislead instead of being more clear what the question is about » (3)
- you are supposed to learn throughout the whole course. having an exam on all content after 3 weeks makes it harder to show what youve actually learned. » (3)
- All parts of the examination touched the same things, if there should be three examination parts, they should handle difeerent parts of the course.» (3)
- Maybe was much more focused on the seminars rather than the book. But seminars were mandatory, thus good!» (4)
- pretty much except from the group evaluation, assessing workcontribution together within the group shows nothing...» (4)
- Maybe working with the same material too many times... But as you say, repetition is good...» (4)
- Hard to say since the home exam has not been graded yet.» (4)

- I have split opinions about the seminars.» (3)
- Maybe not some much new of how to handle these issues, but more on how to read and reflect on articles...» (3)
- Wickenberg was the supervisor in this seminar. It was a really inspiring occation. We had to sit in four groups and discuss each area before we discussed it in the whole group. This was very good because people became a bit "warm in their clothes", that is, they dared to speak in front of everyone, and people had had some minutes to reflect upon the subject already in the small groups. Wickenberg did not really give right or wrong answers, but more wanted to evoke a discussion. This was also very good since people dared to speak when they were not about to be doomed if they said anything "wrong". So to conclude, I did not really learn facts within the area, but it got my head started and thereby I could question the articles myself. » (3)
- This seminar was very very good. It was my first time in such a seminar and I found it a very successful way of involving the students in learning by discussion and analysis.» (5, Very much)

- So, at the second seminar I had Loid as supervisor. He did the seminar structure totally the opposite to how Wickenberg did it. Everything was discussed in the group right away which had the consequence that only some people spoke all the time. It was also confusing when going directly in to students questions since the subject had not been discussed at all in the group and peolpe did not really remember what the article in question was about. People need a start up time to be able to discuss the articles. What Loid also did was to say if things were right or wrong. This had the consequence that people did not dare to speak. » (2)
- Seminar 1 was more interseting!. Sthe articles of seminar 2 were hard to grasp» (2)
- same as above.» (3)
- Maybe not some much new of how to handle these issues, but more on how to read and reflect on articles...» (3)
- This seminar was also very nice. Since some parts of the course that were not really covered by the book or the lectures were covered by this seminar. And also it was a good choice to put it as the second seminar as it required more analysis and discussion ability.» (5, Very much)

- due to that i had to do it all myself which din not give me any feedback at all....» (2)
- Well, I learnt many things about the topic of the research but not really a lot for the purpose of project management. I expected much more relevant knowledge to be gained about the course through this project.» (3)
- the guidelines were diffuse» (3)
- Also here, we could have learned more if there would not have been so many other things in the course that took the attention. Also hard to find a project so fast. » (3)
- Why, see question 8.» (3)
- I felt that it was difficult to work with an area that should both help the project and fit the course. Perhaps a specific list of 4-6 research areas of which one must be chosen would help out.» (3)
- I did not feel that the research project gave as much as the lectures. The research project could be more limited and more lectures added. However, it is good to have some sort of practical application of the theory.» (3)
- I felt it became a bit targeted, which I felt may lead to that I miss out on other areas.» (3)
- Nice project, nice groupmates, nice experience» (4)
- Not very well prepared for the interview questions because of fast-paced course. Interview questions dicided the quality of report in some extends.» (4)
- I think we still need to learn how to formulate questions and how to perform interview. We have knowledge from the course to analyse the situation. But due to few interviews and lack of skills, we cannot get much insights from the company.» (4)
- I was very unhappy with the group I ended up in. Totally different levels of ambition and the knowledge from some of the members makes one wonder about the entry conditions at chalmers. Maybe not specific critic about this course, but to chalmers. I learned or got very much experienced about how the situation can be in worst cases of bad group dynamic. Unfortunately, this time it may affect the final grading. » (4)
- i did come across some new concepts and theories, but i guess it does not match actual practice and experience.» (4)
- Good group selection, Normally is quite uncomfortable when groups are selected by the department. But it was really good the strategy chosen.» (5, Very much)
- Fun to work with so different people, learned a lot from the interaction in the group. Also learned a lot about reality.» (5, Very much)
- but just in the field of our project.» (5, Very much)
- I learnt a lot about how it works in real life» (5, Very much)

- Good in the sense that it presents a very broad spectrum of PM content. Badly written and not much details.» (?)
- I feel that it was over hyped» (2)
- I believe it was not enough for a course in a master"s level. It was too basic in my opinion. It was covering very basic topics in Project Management and management and leadership in general. It was more or less like a mixture of all the courses I had in the area of management in my bachelor studies.» (3)
- More of advertisement of different tools but still gives you an overview.» (3)
- not so logical» (3)
- Difficult to read with long sentences....» (3)
- insightful, but lack of coverage - seems not cover the content it should in each chapter, content swapping between chapter to chapter, confusing which task to do in which phase, » (3)
- American textbooks always have too much text. It could be much more concise. The content was good though.» (3)
- I prefer the project management book by J.K Pinto» (3)
- I didn"t buy it. Think I passed anyway, thanks to good supplementary documents, and studying with friends.» (3)
- it was good but a bit to much text to sa ybasic things sometimes.» (4)
- I think Maylor did not discussed many topics in details and more practical aspects of experience. Maybe introducing another book beside Maylor as a main literature source can be helpful. » (4)
- Many good examples to help understanding» (4)
- structured well , but concepts are a bit hard to grasp» (4)

31. What schould definitely be changed to next year?

- Nothing, a very good course»
- Very interesting course, but too much to do. Having both the basic test and the home exam covering the same subjects is too much. »
- maybe less content in the course»
- Remove the home exam.»
- MOre lectures. The lectures were really good and it would be nice with more of them. Maybe just one were the different lecutrers telles about their experiences in project management.»
- Kursen borde inte examineras på fyra olika sätt. Visst, man lär sig mycket men det motsvarar inte de antal poäng som kursen innefattar.»
- less workload maybe!»
- basic test should be removed. cant base the grades on what the students know after three weeks, especially not when they learn more on the topics in later parts of the course»
- I would like to see more lectures showing "best practices" and describing more in project management »
- Remove home exam. Really. That might give us a bit of social dignity back. »
- I think it would be better to reduce the volume of work.»
- Work load should be decreased.»
- The volume of the work in order to evaluate the students should be less. The course content should be more advanced.»
- more lectures on basic»
- I think home exams do not reflect the real capabilities of students. It is more depending on internet surfing and what extent you are handy in searching and also express it in a managerial way using management language! I think that it will be better to replace it with a written exam that the questions are some actual project challenges that happened for some project managers and then ask people to recommend a solution based on their own understanding from this course. It can help students to be more creative and innovative and also helps lecturers to make sure that they really understood the seminars facts and used them in a more efficient way!»
- see above»
- More lectures and lectures about the book itself. »
- Maybe more seminars instead of the basic test»
- more demands on who gets accepted to the course and change the scope of the researchreport to a background for discussion instead of a report for example»
- i think that its good overall. might be problems with the different research projects if some groups are a little bit unlucky and the company they study doesnt share enough information, have time to meet or things like that. »
- Decrease the amount of examination types. I would like to have three seminars and take away the home exam. When we did so many things in the course, where you had to draw conclusions all the time, it feels very unmotivated to do it again in the home exam. »
- Less stress on book. may be have project management workshops (like they have in the companies) »
- One of the question in the exam is not good, which just indicates the authors of the theory, no clear clue for the students to answer. »
- It was challenge to start with interview without clear goal and knowledge, but managerable. If you had more time or knowledge in the beginning, it would be much better.»
- More information about the exam. Perhaps lectures during the end of hte course as well, doesnt have to be 4 hr lectures though...»
- the pressure. i know some other programs have the same course title with half pressure and work. so how could the grades from this course and that one be compared ? they have the same name.»
- mid term exam»
- One form of examination should be removed (home exam/project/seminars/basic test)»
- Make shure the people attending the course knows english!! Both in writing and to speak it. Perhaps nothing that you can change but I just wanted to mention it anyway...»
- The xamination is too wide. Written exam, project, presentation and home exam are too much.»
- All supervisors need to be alinged in their information. Importnat information should be distributed early.»
- Too many points of the total grade come from the project work. Bad group could spoil the course.»
- I think the literature is quiet different from lectures. it could be changed. moreover I think the seminar should be tailored to the home exam. they should have the same resources. »
- - earlier project presentation - earlier home exam hand out, avoiding conflicts with other examination - guiding how to formulate ideas and write a report in social research»
- The projects should have to choose between a set list of research areas. Better preparation among supervisors. Perhaps a different text book.»
- too many exams»
- Skip the home exam and add two more seminars with grading. »
- Try to start the projects a bit earlier.»
- The homeexam should be removed and replaced with a more time for reasearch project. »
- Came come to think about anything at the moment.»
- Nothing should totally be changed. Maybe more importance should be given to the textbook exam (in terms of grade), since there is a greater effort spent in studying that book if compared to the home exam which influences on the grade by two times.»
- reduce number of examining activities... skip home exam !?»
- More lectures.»
- the course work load of course must be a bit less.»
- Im not sure about the seminars. it is important that the leader is engaged, and i didnt think loid was that. He read the articles on the seminars and didnt have a flow in the discussion.»
- Please add the amount of the lectures»
- I would have preferred having more lectures instead of the seminars as I learn more by having lectures.»
- More lectures and more focus on learning new material.»
- less structures for evaluation, maybe just seminar and research project is sufficient. seminar was a good aspect to help us reflect and observe others reflections»
- Hard to say..! It was, as I said, a very good course. »
- Please change the grouping this way: in each group all the members Swedish students OR at most 2-3 Swedish. I also asked my friends in other groups about it and they had the same problem. In all the groups with majority of Swedish students, they ignore others" opinions easily which is not fair. So Please change the grouping for next time so that: * All the members Swedish * At most 2-3 Swedish students»
- more classes should be scheduled and probably the take home exam could be avoided.»
- I would prefer more lectures and that they were spread along the length of the course. Maybe the seminaires should be removed and be replaced by more lectures. If not, the articles used for the seminares should definitely be replaced as many of them were poorly written and failed to gain my interest in the topics covered.»
- Lower the workload, it is too much with written litterature test, two seminars, research project and home exam for a 7,5hp-course. Make it able to compose own research groups.»
- Better information about dates (especially the home exam) and times etc.»
- I think that the last home exam isnt necessary. The course workload was very high, so it would be great not to have to write the home exam»
- the workload can be distributed more and the deadlines could be extended»
- The litterature seminars should be in the right order.»
- I think the work done during the course is a lot (seminars, project and test)and it should be supressed the home exam.»
- increaing lectures needed to grasp the text book, "Project Management"»
- I don"t think that anything has to change. The changes which were undertaken to this years opportunity was very good, i.e. having two seminars instead of three.»

32. Additional comments

- Good job!»
- Well , the name of the course is project management, we expect more how to manage project not to analysis on going project. i believe that its more better to teach how to mange project, PS: exam and seminars are quite good »
- Very good course!»
- Too much examinations.»
- I concider this one of top three courses on 4,5 years at Chalmers. »
- All the tutoring group have done a great job, so thanks a lot and try to keep the seminars and recommend them for other courses to other teachers.»
- I would like to appreciate the management team of this course that all together made a very good attempt to make the students more interested and activated in project management principles and theories. They really worked hard to motivate students to do more and be responsible for their tasks.»
- It is a very interesting subject and many of the students wants to learn about project management so why overload the course and make it to something many students don"t like. Try to market the course as an interesting subject and how imortant it is instead of trying to scare people away from it at introductions.»
- THe literature semminars were really helpful»
- Merry christmas!»
- Overall good course that will be useful for me in the future! »
- Good structure of the course!»
- Thanks.»
- overall course was well structured and well conducted.»

- This questionnaire was filled by: 850610-5983»
- It was the first home exam of my life and I must say that I got a great learning outcome from it.»
- thanks you all!»
- Overall this was one of the best structured courses I have taken during the 4.5 years at Chalmers. Good balance of examinations. The teamwork take home exam provided some very interesting discussions and was a lot more fun.»
- It is very time consuming to work with exchange students, unfortunately. Chalmers really should offer a basic course in how to write reports, when exchange students start their period here. It feels almost equally important as testing their language skills. »
- Overall it has been a very interesting course!»
- Learned alot on this course, but unfortunatly, my other course suffered severly from the extensive time PM toke.»
- very good course»
- one of the most interseting and relevant curses during my 5 evars at Chalmers!!»
