I have done dozens of courses on Coursera and this might be my least favorite. It is a disgrace to the rest of the specialization because the "innovation/creativity/entrepreneurship principles" are not actually related to the materials taught in previous courses. You are given formulaic assignments to evaluate strength and weaknesses of a chosen company (which is frankly troubled and potentially a fraud) according to these principles. You are given some case materials which may or may not touch on any of these principles. There are not enough guidelines for these assignments (i.e. word counts) and people's submissions are vastly different. Yet you have to finish it as part of a specialization. I hated it!

The capstone course did not bring me any value add at all.
The tests and the assignments were too superficial or focused on unnecessary details
The target company (Local Motors) was not really suited for the assignments.
Clear example: how can one to assess a PRIVATE company from the perspective of a venture capital fund, without having access to any numbers and to the company's strategy. Next time, please pick a listed company.
Some resources (articles) about the target company were outdated.
There was no new insight, no real guidance what so ever, just a set of dull quizzes and assignments (each assignment was the same as the other - 2 strengths / 2 weaknesses, but with other content).
In a word, a total waste of time.
