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. In this course, you’ll 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.
Among other things, the course will help students:
- Explain key concepts and practices from the agile product development methodology.
- Create a strong shared perspective and drive to value using personas and problem scenarios.
- Diagnose what software to develop and why using a set of agile user stories and prototypes.
- Facilitate narrative collaboration with user stories and prototypes.
You can take Agile Meets Design Thinking for free by selecting the audit option upon enrolling. If you want to take the course for a certificate, you will need to pay a fee.
