This was very interesting and detailed oriented learning experience, giving insights towards the overall design leg strategy and components of creating a design led customer driven value proposition.
This course is a very useful and excellent course I would say. Well comprehend and I love the part which brings in real life examples of how Swiss Re and Ubank used the design strategy.

Course description claims it to be intermediate. Unfortunately this course is pretty basic. Might be good for beginners that never heard about Business Mode Canvas or Design Thinking. If you know anything about those, then you should skip this course. There is enough content for long blog post plus two real life cases. Which are good idea but are presented in very shallow manner. Instead, for example, presenting how prototypes progressed, speaker just says that they started with one prototype and end with seven and how much they learned from it.

Good course, very consistant with a new approche to define strategy with design thinking method. the tools are very useful.

This course is a good effort in getting the best of both Business Model Canvas and Design Thinking.
However, like most of other courses on Coursera, this course can become much better by creating depth in content and interviews etc. For people in the know of both these topics, this course loses steam in first few sessions while for the uninitiated it does not build much depth except prompting them learn about these topics.

The course successfully teaches you the basics of design thinking and design strategy. It really makes you think through the entire course and gives some amazing articles and blogs to read. It really helped me in understanding the basics and making me an enthusiast in design thinking. Will definitely apply all the knowledge that i gained here in my work.

Great Introduction to Design thinking with well-made and direct to the point videos, having Dr. Harris as a great communicator. This is a sister course of Innovation through design offered by Coursera and both of them bring a better experience on to Design Thinking Philosophy

Amazing demonstration of Strategy and design thinking through various examples and scenarios with UBank and SwissRe. Really loved the way the course has been structured and appreciate Carla Harris for brilliant narration.
By Jad S•
Very insightful course.
I did appreciate the way the design thinking principles were clarified and the real world business examples, which were very interesting.
What I missed though is a greater emphasis on the link between the business strategy and design thinking and a greater clarification on how to make the best use of the latter for the first.

It was a bit too basic and lacked the depth I expected in how to utilize the tools. I know a little bit more about the tools discussed in this course now. But I haven't really acquired a greater skill level in them.

It was my pleasure to go through the course, the content of the course has been well thought through, quality of the videos were too good. If offered enough opportunity to do home work. I feel worth attending the course to update on the fundamentals of design thinking,.
One suggestion....The course is still one way, can you make it interactive (involving facilitator) , may be new dimension to e learning.

The course helped me in understanding the nuances of design thinking and gave me a broader perspective to approach a business problem and solving it by looking at all the possible solutions. Once listed, each solution itself could open up a new business strategy apt for the organization esp the Business Canvas model. The faculty was great in delivering the sessions. Cheers to the team !!

Great course consisting of video lectures, worksheets for particular tasks, case studies of real successful companies, pop-up questionnaires incorporated in video lessons make learning material more compelling and practical. Highly recommend to everyone working directly with problem solving in corporate as well as startup organisation.

In general a very good course. take it keeping an open mind, although we tend to think of prototyping as something for physical tangible products or software the process learned in the course can be applied to most aspects of life and business. I would recommend to anyone looking to be an entrepreneur or whom leads people in a company.

Design Strategy is an excellent course provided by #SydneyUniversity.
It helps to structure our product ideas to create prototypes, identify customer and their pain points, deliver value and update regularly through a human centric approach.
Very much liked the way each lesson is taught by the professors with the live examples

The course is very well designed and delivered. It actually made understanding a lot of concepts very easy. A more well encompassed evaluation criteria of the assignment submission would have made it feel even better. Elated nevertheless to have completed it. Thanks Coursera and University of Sydney.

Course is crystal clear in the global path and in the concepts explained. I do think focusing on a specific item in 5 weeks is winning! We can quickly learn and work in our organizations in real time. Thanks to Coursera and thanks to the Professors of the University of Sidney. Davide Pannier Suffait

An insightful and interesting course that will lead you to think much more into solving your organisation's skills using the principal of Design thinking. Though keep in mind the course is at an introductory level, the concepts are just touched upon giving you a working idea of the same.

The instructors are very professional and they transmit the information in a very understandable way. I come from a 100% pure scientific background and I had no experience whatsoever in business. Now I feel prepared to apply for roles of product management. Totally recomendable!

Como eu curti fazer esse curso! O conteúdo é rico e robusto e o que mais gostei foram os materiais que poderei usar em meus projetos e os cases de aplicação de Design Thinking que foram feitos em empresas da Austrália.
