The first half was an easy refresher on the BC technology with simple definitions and examples. However, the last third of the session on measuring the weights of each criteria whether BC would be beneficial for an organization was a bit technical and could have been condensed with fewer illustrations and points. But the detail provided can be a useful tool for a company to consider when deciding to implement BC in its business functions.

Overall good more insight to the multicriteria assessment scorecard to assess various applications. The application was meaningful and it would have been even more meaningful to walk through at a more granular level for one of the sections in completing the scorecard to see the implications. Also, more content on the utility token would be great.
