Great class that offered a lot of class interaction and discussion which enhanced my knowledge even more. Cases were excellent!
Well paced and managed course. Very informative and great teaching style.
Great online classroom discussion format! We were able to learn from each other as well as the professor and provide lots of information for the required case write-ups.
I appreciated that he took the time to make a poster board of our class and attempted to connect with each of us.
It was very enjoyable to listen to all the stories Professor Butler had to tell us. It brings the material to a genuine level where we can appreciate the extent of the failures and triumphs. It also helps us connect with our professor more and thus yield better engagement for all.

Good class overall. Thoroughly enjoyed the class, the professor and the case studies.
Business strategy is an interesting course because it covers such a wide range of topics. I appreciate how Prof. Butler reviewed a fully array of strategic tools and applied them to case studies. Personally, I would have benefited even more from the class with a stronger focus on developing tools to evaluate business strategies. I sometimes struggled to analyze the cases because I didn't have a systematic approach for identifying critical issues and evaluating strategies.
I thought this course was supposed to prepare me for the capstone, which should encompass all of the material and disciplines we've learned this far. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I felt that this class was graded way too easy and the course expectations were a little low. Material was light and could have been more substantial. Wish I would have learned more, but at least John was entertaining. I would rather have less entertainment with more learning, but that's just me.
Thank you, Dr. Butler.
