It was a fine introduction, however pretty basic. I think the instructor has a nice pace, and is quite easy to follow. It's a little bit "Americanized way of thinking", where focus is very much on the shareholders and the economic sustainability. I would have liked a little more holistic overview of the other areas of what in my opinion makes up the strategy of a truly great business, including environmental sustainability, social sustainability, value provided for society and the customers of the business. All in all a fairly good introduction, with a good and knowing instructor, but there is still room left for improvement. To be fair I have only watched the intro lecture at this point where I'm asked to grade the course, so maybe some of my points of criticism will be unfolded later on in the course.
