Great teacher. I liked his teaching style and i learned a lot while taking this course that can be used in the future.
Maybe work on getting students more interested to the topics.
I think that the two videos we watched and relate to change an resistence were really helpful in understanding the materials. In fact, I did better on the quizzes where I related the material to the movie. I think if there are more examples used in movies, it could capture people's attention more and help them become more interested in the material.
Very knowledgable
I enjoyed Dr. Bangert's methods of teaching the course concepts.
I enjoyed the books for the courses because they were not "textbooks" I do think that if at all possible an updates What Really Works book would be great. The companies that were mentioned have changed so it would be itneresting for them to do a follow up or using a book with simillar concepts but updated information. Overall I did enjoy the readings.
Professor Bangert was one of my favorite HRM professors and I was saddened to hear he was retiring.
This class really opened my eyes to the more difficult side to management. I think changes in organizations are extremely challenging, but after this course, I have a better understanding of how to deal with tough situations in the work environment when it comes to downsizing and reorganizing a business model. The workload was not overwhelming at all. As long as you read and keep up with the case studies, you're good to go. Work well with your team members in your group because you have two group projects with them. All in all this class was a very good class.
A great professor and I learned a lot from the class

Professor Bangert's approach for this class was very refreshing. I very much appreciated the real-life applications and the avoidance of regurgitating the book in lectures. One bit of critcism is that he should push those applications further and really get his students to analyze their ideas.
Professor Bangert is the very finest professor I have had the pleasure of experiencing at UH. He has the most relevant and engaging class plans and activities I have ever seen. His presentation style and class leadership Is unparralled. He is inspiring and tremendously interesting.
David Bangert is a good professor. He is very down-to-earth and willing to help out his students in any way that he can.
Great professor who is willing to help out whenever needed!
Very well structured class. I learned a lot and the activities were very helpful in understanding course concepts. I also enjoyed the interaction with classmates on projects and discussions. I don't really enjoy the price of the text book. For such a thin text book, it sure does cost a lot of money and it's a soft cover.
textbook is redundant and material is moronic (easy concepts masked with baffling words). In fact, the concepts and deduction of ideas are so simple a hobo could fart it out while he goes fishing. Nevertheless, the statistic data was good. recommendation: keep everything the way it is, change the txtbook.
