Agile Meets Design Thinking

Provided by: Coursera

Despite everyone's good intentions, hard work and solid ideas, too many teams end up creating products that no one wants, no one can use, and no one buys. But it doesn't have to be this way. Agile and design thinking offer a different--and effective--approach to product development, one that results in valuable solutions to meaningful problems.

Course Objectives:

  • To learn how to determine what's valuable to a user early in the process--to frontload value--by focusing your team on testable narratives about the user and creating a strong shared perspective.

Recommended Background

  • Recommended for individuals wanting to improve their career qualifications in Agile Thinking & as Product Manager , General Manager, involved in Product development
