In this course you’ll learn Design Thinking in combination with Lean UX. Design Thinking is a way to get better balance in a tech- and business-focused product development world using design methods to also include the user’s perspective. The core of Design Thinking is to understand and meet the user’s needs as well as finding the solution that fulfils these needs best. Lean UX will add a method for critical thinking concerning both possible needs and solutions, to be 100% certain that your product will be a blockbuster.
