This class was very interesting to me because it forced me to look at products, not only their value to the organization, but the efficiency of that product from a lot of different angles. You can look at it from all the angles taught in the class, or you can look at it from a grouping of those angles. And for me it was a highly valuable. It's much more than just the product lines that we have today in our organization.
