"This is a course I would definitely recommend to anyone going through complex transformations or sensing the need for a deeper understanding of the complex business and social environment we live in; it was useful to realize once again the magnitude of business transformation challenges across multiple dimensions, the systemic impact on the eco-system but also to size the enormous opportunities to take. Thanks Michael and Michele"
