- You can really tell that Arni has great competece and is engaged in the subject but it was very uncommon that he managed to finish all he was suppose to say within the timeframe. This adds in to the already high workload. » (Some extent)

- It was useful in order to get another perspective in and see the problems in a new way, but the book was really hard to follow. It could have been easier if the book was better structured and better illustrated like Van Weeles book. For these reasons it was very hard to motivate myself to read the book.» (Small extent)
- Interesting book but the book is to complicated and the language was too difficult to get a good understanding.» (Small extent)
- A bit complicated to understand sometimes.» (Small extent)
- It is a very heavy book» (Small extent)
- - the content of the SNS book was the core topic during the lecture, but sometimes kind of hard to read» (Some extent)
- I think the essence of SNS is good, but you need to read the material several times in order to get the point. When you aim for a specific topic e.g. when working with a case, I think SNS can be very useful. » (Some extent)
- It was really to mutch to read considering the amount of credit and all the assignements on the side (not only from this course). Did not have the time to read the strategy book, but only skim through a few chapters. It seems good though. » (Some extent)

Course structure and content

11. How do you perceive the following parts of the course? Please give some brief comments if you rank any part as less than good.


- The teaching from the lessons could be made more clear, I often felt that I did not know what I was supposed to know when I walked out of the class, and I have to add that I have read in before hand. Sometimes Arni asks questions to the class but when he wants us to answer the question it is not the question that he asked for instead something else. The host company seminar was very long, so it was hard to pay attention to all the groups" presentations, even though it was very interesting. The room was too small so the air was bad even before the seminar started, which highly affected my perception of the semninar.»
- The workload overall for this period was hard but manageable. I have never had such good combination of lectures with Arni together with the Accenture case. Great learning experience! Keep that for next year!»
- - For me it was one of the best lectures in my studies. It extended my knowledge and it was a pleasure to listen to Arni. Even if is sometimes a bit fast, it was always impressive how he taught.»
- The host company idea is really great but the overall workload for the studyperiod is to mutch.»

- Too high in combination with the termpaper,hostcompany and the SCM course. » (High)
- The workload with the SCM course and the term paper was way to high compared to other reading periods. It was impossible to follow correctly in the course, you was always more than one step behind.» (Too high)
- It does not correspond to a 6hp course. It feels like the fact that we have three courses running simultanoeusly has not been taken in to consideration.» (Too high)
- Two books have to be read with 26 chapters and articles.» (Too high)

- Very interesting topic» (Adequate)
- Intresting but i belive i would have learned more if the workload for the overall period was less. » (Good)
- Very interesting course » (Excellent)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The lecture form is good. By not reading what is in the book from the slides but talking around the subject gives a good understanding of the subject in general.»
- Arni»
- arni»
- The Van Weele book was really useful. Also Accenture case was eyesopening and interesting.»
- Articles»
- The host company case and seminar 3.»
- Arni! Arni was super and really interesting.»
- The accenture case Sara Rogerson!»
- Arni"s way of lecturing, more lectures with him!»
- Seminars!»
- Arni´,s examples during the lectures. »
- The Case and Host Company.»
- Strategic Sourcing Seminar»
- the strategic sourcing seminar»
- The accenture case but i think the timeframe should be a bit longer and the word limit extended. »

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the network book was not very easy or good to read»
- The case could be a bigger part of the overall grade, for example 40% instead of 20%.»
- I would like if the Accenture case would have been in more details with numbers. Right now it was based very much on assumptions so a lot of uncertainty and confusion existed in the solving process. Additionally I didn"t like the fact that 20% of the final mark came from such a big group activity like Accenture case. Ofcourse I understand that group working is very important, but I feel that it is little bit unfair. In such a big task the group has to split somehow and devide responsibilities. And you have to have trust in others, because it is impossible (and even incorrect) to do everything yourself. So even though you decent work, then your final mark is very reliable on your group members. So when somebody is "misfortunate" with group, then the final grade will be influenced by that factor greatly, not on the individual work or potential of the student. This situation could turn out to be demotivating.»
- Seminar 1 felt unnecessary»
- The workload was to high.»
- The course in general is really good but the workload was too high.»
- Give more clear directions with regards to which case that each group should present in before hand. We had to put approx 12h per person (60h in total for the group) in to making and practicing for the presentations, this is not reasonable.»
- More lectures with Arni, but try to have a little more structure for each lecture. Could be a little confusing sometimes, but maybe set a clear learning point for each lecture.»
- The book "Supply Network Strategies"»
- the environmental transport seminar I believe do not provide any input to the learning as it is right now. Environmental issues are better addressed with the related articles and are more than enough. »
- The indivitual term paper should be placed after Christmas if not excluded. It creates alot of stress and it does not really give that much. »

17. Additional comments

- The course is good and really important for the program. But I just have not adapted to the tight schedule yet and the exam has come. I feel difficult to catch up the course at the beginning and there is not much time left to finish all the readings. What I understand well is that we have discussed in the seminars because I apply the knowledge to the cases. It"s better to read from the beginning and get more connected to the real world.»
- Thank you for a great course! »
- Please check the load of the course. Even when activities help you to understand the course content they do not exactly prepare the student for the exam so it is necessary to still re-read towards the exam.»
