Are your products or services solving the challenges your stakeholders are facing? When faced with business challenges, do you jump straight into solutions before taking the time to fully investigate the needs and experiences of those affected by the problem? Through the process of Human-Centered Design, you will practice approaching challenges using the tools and habits of designers and innovators. You will learn to view challenges through the lens of empathy, allowing you to cast aside assumptions, get curious, and create solutions that are more likely to result in long-lasting success. In this program you will:

  • Create better solutions by adapting Human-Centered Design methodology
  • Conduct empathy interviews and analyze the findings
  • Build a simple prototype of generated ideas
  • Fine-tune the solution by iterating, testing, and integrating user feedback
