About This Product Management Course

Design thinking is an overused phrase and has accumulated quite a bit of misinformation in recent years. However, the original concepts behind design thinking are immensely valuable in today’s organizations as we seek solutions to complex problems. Arising from early visual design and ideation practices, design thinking has evolved over time into both a philosophy for solving complex problems as well as a concrete methodology for designing and building solutions.

Led by an expert with deep experience leading teams who design and build solutions in real-world environments, you and your peers collaborate to define and solve problems using design thinking techniques.
