I’m taking the fifth course, called Business Strategy, of Strategic Leadership and Management Specialization from the University of Illinois on Coursera. This course is taught by Deepak Somaya, Professor of Business Administration.
This is a four-module course, one module per week, and at the end of each module, we have an assessment: to write a case study analysis about a given topic. In the first week, I had to write a hypothetical memo to the CEO of Uber, suggesting a new mission statement. The second week, that I just finished, I had to write a hypothetical memo to Warren Buffet to suggest to increase or decrease the investments on Coca-Cola Company. Both assignments were hard to write and demand a considerable amount of time to get it done, and, the first one I couldn’t get it right in the first attempt and had to resubmit my assignment. For the second one, I’m now waiting for a review of my peers. Anyway, I think it would be good to share it here to gather some feedback if it might occur.

There’s always that moment when you need to implement authentication and authorization to an application and, besides intercepting and protecting requests, we also need to protect the application’s routes. Angular uses Route Guards through canActivate and or canLoad methods to decide whether a route or a child module should be available or not, and, it can use multiple conditions – or Guards – to decide that.

Foundations of Everyday Leadership is the very first course of Strategic Leadership and Management Specialization from the University of Illinois on Coursera. It’s taught by professor Gregory Northcraft which also teaches the following course Applications of Everyday Leadership.
This first course really gives you a ground base of leadership and its challenges. The most important thing from this first classes was to get an overview of different types of leadership, how to make individual and group decisions and how to manage motivation. I’d like to share my notes about it.

Early this year I decided to focus my studies on the leadership & management sides of organisations, and I enrolled for Strategic Leadership and Management Specialization, a specialization from the University of Illinois on Coursera. I found the courses really complete in terms of content and recommended material, and, so far, these courses gave me a great background on topics such as the foundations and applications of leadership, group decisions and fostering decision, conflict management and so on. When I took Designing the Organization: From Strategy to Organizational Structure, I thought it would be far from what I’d like to learn at this moment, however, it helped me to understand why organisations are designed in the way they are. I’m currently in the 4th course of 7, called Managing the Organization: From Organizational Design to Execution where I’m currently learning about effective organisational decision-making. This is such a great topic that worth to leave my notes with kind of a course summary here.

I am not judging, although it might appear as I am. I already mentioned a couple of features that make me think Angular is a great choice for a web framework and I’m still decided to invest my time on it. However, I failed by not evaluating it more deeply, to be fair. Anyway, we all have our flaws, don’t we?

I have been playing with the latest Angular version for the last couple of weeks and I’m enjoying it. The last time I touched Angular 2+ was in 2016 on an Ionic mobile project and before that, only had experienced working with the now called AngularJS. The current version (7) looks great!
