- Most of the time was spent reading and understanding, which I personally feel is essential to the way the module is run. In order to do a seminar the literature had to be understood, or at least read to help start conversations.» (15 hours)

- Didn´,t go do the value stream mapping and the lean game didn´,t have any extra out side the actual game. Did extra work instead of the value stream mapping though.» (0 hours)
- Although the VSM took lonmger than expected, I feel it was required. It worked well to provoke different thoughts, therefore not only gaining the correct result, but also creating a group concensus» (15 hours)

- it was annoying with the constantly changing schedule» (Ok (Grade 3))
- It was a bit tiresome to always have to sign up at the webpage. » (Ok (Grade 3))
- The information on the web page was ok,but there could be improvements. The assignment results were announced quite late the first three week but that was improved later on though. Hard to level out the workload if there were corrections to be made. It would also have been nice if we got the deadline and the prerequisites for the VSM assignment earlier. It felt like the task was not important since there were no clear instructions whereby the learning outcome was poor. If the expectations on the report is higher then the students will put more effort and learn more than this time when many took it unseriously. The attitude from the course administration is important here. It was a bit confusing that two lectures were cancelled without any replecements and that also harmed the perception of the importance of the course content.» (Ok (Grade 3))
- some hand outs where not online until last minute or when the lecture had already begun. Good to have it in beforehand so you can print it out.» (Good (Grade 4))
- The uploading was good and a lot of the information went on mail and this is something that I like since I am lazy to check the news on the portal. Think there were some people that thought we had a lecture on the last day.» (Very good (Grade 5))

- Did not ask many questions, but regarding deadlines and report outline connected to VSM the information was fuzzy and not thought through. It felt like the course responsibles did not have enough time and resources to commit to the course to a sufficient extent. » (Ok (Grade 3))

- They were not present at the first lecture but overall I think it eas a positive and nice attitude. The first meeting was at the lean game and that reception was ok. It was a bit unclear who had what responsibilities and if any of them had any area of specialization within lean and thereby was responsible for that. Too much open discusssions between the examinators that spread a feeling of unclarity and unstructured planning. » (Good (Grade 4))

- it was as high as you made itm some people just read and answer a question, i personally create different thoughts before i choose an exact answer. I feel this also helped me participate more in the seminars» (High (Grade 4))
- Not sure if it was Lean that had a lot because of the seminar or that it was because of the other course had a lot. It felt» (High (Grade 4))

- It needs to be more structured and maybe it is best if just one person has the overall responsibility for the course, there was a confusion that spread out to the students probably because the responsibilities between the examinators were not fully desided upon. The VSM task must be improved (higher requirements on the report) or it should be removed. I would have preferred to learn even more about VSM though and therefore I recommend that the task should be restructured. Maybe the number of seminars can be reduced so that more effort is put on just a few (maybe 4) and then it could be possible to receive better feedback from the work.» (Ok (Grade 3))
- One of the most intersting courses at chalmers!» (Very good (Grade 5))
- It was one of the best courses in the Masters program. This is something I really would like to work with!» (Very good (Grade 5))
- i loved it! Goooo Lean!» (Very good (Grade 5))

- Good to hear and discuss others thought etc. but for some people, who did not speak, I don"t believe it contributed at all. » (To some extent (Grade 3))
- Essential» (To very large extent (Grade 5))
- again I say that is the best way of learning» (To very large extent (Grade 5))
- Overall, the seminar assignments clearly provided the largest part of the learning. As written above, maybe the number of seminars can be reduced. Also in order to improve the quality of the discussions. Even if the purpose is that the students should lead the discussions I think the lecturer shall intervene more to steer the discussion in the right direction. With this I don"t mean that the lecturer should talk more but to ask the right questions to make sure that everyone gets the opportunity to get the right understanding of the subject. Sometimes the discussions were really off-topic and that was frustrating.» (To very large extent (Grade 5))

- Lean as a subject I would really recommend, but I think I would give a warning that the course is a bit too unstructured when it comes to execution of the seminars and the choice of lectur content. There were not any consistency between the lectures. Sometimes content were repeated by different lecturers. That is of course good for learning but it was not perceived as it was intended to be in that way. There was not any line of argument throughout the course.» (Maybe)
- Best course at Chalmers» (Absolutely)
- Should be very useful for the UK job search» (Absolutely)
- Lean is extreamly important and I think every engineer will gain from it» (Absolutely)
- But I still think that there were a lot of Muda at the Skövde visit in form of uncertainess.» (Absolutely)

23. Lectures: What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- The guess lectures with real life examples were really Interesting. »
- The lectures were really good and interesting,»
- The basic concept on what is Lean and that we needed to reflect on it in many ways.»
- Could be good to not put the Learning organizations and team work lecture on a friday afternoon since required full focus in order to grasp. »
- Maybe even more guest lecturers. »
- They were overall very good and interesting. Not too many which is good since the seminars take a lot of time»
- Seminars and lean game have been very interesting. Value stream mapping should be prepared to a larger extend in advance.»
- Most were good, but the lady holding the last lecture before easter break held a most exhaustingly boring presentation. I love the subjects that she talked about, but it was so horrible that I had to leave. She needs to review and update her pedagogic approach.»
- good summary of key points»
- The PowerPoints could use a design makeover. Since colour blindness is not that uncommon, you might want to change all those green and red bar charts...»
- think it would be good to have more case studies than lecture theories alone»
- sometimes covers what has already been said in previous lectures»
- In general good lectures, and some very good guest lectures. The VSM-lecture was a little too much for only 2 hours of lecture. Maybe it would be beneficial to stretch it over 3 hours. »
- it was interesting and the lecturers made it fun. would want the slides online more sooner.»
- Review the lecture content and create a line of argument between the lectures.»

24. Seminars: What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- Make sure that everyone participate. Some people were in silence the entire seminar.»
- Too basic.»
- It was good to get a comparison between Liker and the articles that had different focus. »
- The seminars were great! I just think that the students who show up without saying anything during the whole seminar has to work extra somehow!»
- The seminar about the hospital seemed to be more practical. Maybe it"s possible to include one more seminar, which is similar to this.»
- The reading and reflection with a workload spread evenly during the course duration was excellent. I believe smaller groups enables more people to find the courage to actually hold discussions at the seminar. »
- discussing about topics is very interesting, too bad that some people didn"t dare giving their opinions»
- good»
- require that everyone speaks at some point in all seminars»
- Riktigt bra och lärande seminarier, men ett krav borde vara att alla ska delta i diskussionen och ge sina synpunkter/åsikter. En del satt ju tysta hela seminarierna, och ingen av er kommenterade det. Det tycker jag sänker motivationen att göra sitt bästa för oss andra.»
- It would be nice to have them on wednesdays instead of mondays as many finds other things to do during the week, and save it for the weekend. It"s better to make time for it during the week instead to better divide the work between courses.»
- Always a great atmosphere. The questions that the students had to prepare really helped creating interesting discussions. »
- It takes a lot of time to do the work but it taught you a lot. Kind of "forced" you to learn the literature :)»
- the results from some of the seminars were quite late, this fact might be improved if possible.»
- The questions to be answered was good. For further notes, look at previous answers.»

25. Group assignments (lean game, case and VSM): What was good, what needs improvements and what would you suggest?

- Maybe VSM more in deep detail.»
- Better layout and more information»
- They are all good but the seminars become more and more dependent on how well people read and write, not how leanish they are. I have trained very much on reading and breaking down articles this year, which made me only need to use less than one hour for each seminar. Some other struggled for a day. This doesnt seem quite right.»
- Lean game and case were good. Prepare the students better for the VSM, it fellt quite bad to be at a actual company and barly have a clue as to what we were supposed to do»
- More tutoring for the VSM.»
- The VSM could be better prepared. If we had got a more meticulous review we had got more out of it. »
- The VSM was not prepared enough... we didn"t get good directions at volvo and went to every single workplace. Somebody could have said before that it is sufficient to look at one place.»
- The inability to comply reality to the instructions in the VSM mapping excersize was problematic but rewarding.»
- maybe more instructions for the VSM»
- The VSM shouldn"t be part of the examination if everyone can"t participate on equal terms.»
- good»
- very good visit, and in hindsight the lean game made a lot of sense, worked well at the beginning and a good way to meet people.»
- The lean game was a good way of proving the validity of the lean concept and the case showing how it can be used outside production. Better information before the VSM visit at volvo would have been good.»
- Lean game was great, the case very interesting. I have the feeling that the VSM especially regarding the company visit could have been prepared better, e.g. that the students exactly know what they have to look up at the production floor of the company visit in order to create a good VSM.»
- the lean game was really good to show you how things work. Even though it wasn´,t real live it showed you how things work that we have been reading about.»
- Brief info about the vsm activities could have been given in the bus before entering the factory. In the factory we didn"t have any time to plan or discuss before getting to the first station.»
- The introduction to VSM was good, but it would be good with a introduction to the assignment of VSM as well.»
- Previously answered.»

26. What should be changed concerning the course?

- N/A»
- Make it an advance course or tell people it is lean for dummies.»
- I understand that correcting the asignments take time, but I wish that it would have been done faster. Waiting between 2-3 weeks is to much!»
- Better preparation considering the VSM task. »
- i think nothing except changes in lectures as suggested earlier»
- Previously answered.»

27. Comments and other remarks

- One of the best courses I"ve taken at Chalmers.»
- A really interesting course that I hope to get use of in my career! Thanks to you and have a good summer!»
- Carl & Christian... you guys are awesome! You managed to make the course really fun and interesting. Thank you! *hugs*»
- Keep the seminar + nonmandatory exam system. Much much more rewarding than having a random sample with a percentage goal for fail/pass like common exams do.»
- Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I think it will be extremely useful when applying for jobs to have some sort of background in lean, and with this i can understand how every company is different in implementing this»
- One of the best and definitely most interesting courses I had in my 2 Semester studies at Chalmers, so keep it on like that :)»
- I may think the questions on the exams were a bit wide. I understand that wide questions are needed to see if the students underatnd the whole picture, but the ones where we ha to come up with the questions our self, I think that was a bit over the edge. It was really hard to know on what level to write and answer them.. Otherwise, maybe the best course I ever had. »
- Very nice course!»
