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 is great course. It was informative, relevant to today's way of working and it was enjoyable. Highly recommended.\n\nMany thanks to the team at Univeristy of Sydney who delivered this course,

I liked the course, which conveys design thinking and design strategy principles and tools effectively and understandably. I hoped for a refresher on some key concepts and this course delivered. Some suggestions for improvement: The intense focus on the cases (Ubank / Swiss Re) is a bit too much. While the videos exemplify some of the ideas conveyed in the course, their value add is somewhat limited, so I ended up skipping through lots of these segments. Another idea, given that this wants to be a University course, would be to add some more in-depth reading material beyond blog posts. Other than that, thanks for the effort that went into preparing this!

The course started off really well. However i felt it ended a bit prematurely. The concepts of Business Strategy was explained and then there was a little deeper dive in design thinking. uptill here it was good.
However the part where Design Thinking meet Biz strat is what i was disappointed in. I felt there was more of a product development focus rather than Biz strat. I am still left wondering how to use design thinking in business strategy.

I enjoyed the refresher on business strategy and learned more about the principles of design thinking. The material was easy to grasp and useful. Even though it was great to get examples of how design thinking can be used in a practical context, there was too much emphasis on two very specific examples. I would have enjoyed a more varied approach with different examples of design strategy in practice.

I would love if we could get a PDF of the course information which we could use for our own reference. The content of the course is very informative. The content is well created and gives a through overview of what exactly is Design Strategy. It would be nice if we could actually see the product and application developed for SwissRe and Ubank.

Good course giving a perspective on applying design thinking principles in business strategy. One suggestion - Both the case studies or examples are only in the area of product development. It would have been great if one of the case studies were in other business areas it would have helped get a broader perspective.

It has very good content but the videos are a bit simple compared with other courses in Coursera. The study cases are great but it would be great to have more visual examples of how to apply design thinking and how an MVP or a prototype looks like. Nevertheless great course.

The course was informative and helpful. The videos were very fast paced with tons of information and lessons taught in a very short timeframe. I often had to pause or repeat them to understand all of the information and take adequate notes for my own learning.

This is a really great introduction to Design Strategy. While I do have experience in HCD, this was a good insight into applying the methodology in business strategy. I would like to see more challenging assignments introduced as this quiz felt a bit too easy.

Good overview of the deisgn thinking practice.
However more focused on design thinking than corporate strategy; the use case could be more detailed as well;
Not suitable for people who already know and have use Business Canva business model .

Love the program. It would be 5-star excellence if the program is longer and deeper-dived with into each of the subjects giving more exercises and case-studies beyond what is current. Dr. Carla Harris made the course easy to understand.

The course was succinct and provided useful case studies and tools to help implement a design thinking process. I would recommend it to other busy professionals who need a crash course on this topic.
