About the Course

Welcome Designers! In this course, developed at the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, we will introduce you to the design thinking process. It is a project-based course in which you will identify a human-centered problem that you want to solve. We will focus our attention on the first seven steps of our 14-Step design thinking process. We’ll guide you through crafting and carrying out a research plan that helps you answer the question, “What is?” You will gather and identify important insights about the needs and wants of others and use this information to identify the attributes of an ideal solution....

A great course where learners have the skills and knowledge to identify problems and come up with innovative breakthrough solutions.

Learners will learn 14 steps in the Design Thinking process and its 4 pillars. If your work often requires creativity or breakthroughs in business or design, this is the really good course for you.

Excellent course! The instructors, the quizzes, the project and all the materials are very well put-together and the concepts are explained and explored very clearly and create a very thought-provoking and "stretching" experience, even for those of us who have been working in the design space for several years now.

This is easily one of the well-structured courses on DT and the specialization covers principles, practices and the experiences of DT. The faculty members are wonderful and particularly the energy and passion of Prof Jeanne M. Liedtka are infectious. I would highly recommend this course and the specialization.

Has some good high-level take aways but lacks any real substance to be useful. Example, the course "tells" you to make a good hypothesis, but neer shows examples, never gives strategies to formulate making it very difficult to bring into practice. Also, this course seems gimmicky with Darden coined terms that don't translate over to other design thinking educations. Lastly, the way the course is taught is dry, slow, and surface level, you don't learn anything the course just tells you things and then backs it up with a very weak examples. It seems the educators did not even apply their own technics to the creation of this course which should be a huge red flag to anyone hoping to deploy this in their professional careers. I hope they don't teach this in their MBA level curriculum

This has a peer-review assignment which is the worst... as it is taking around more than 2 months to get it reviewed. So before enrolling , plz think thrice
