Product Design, Prototyping, and Testing
This essential product management course explains key design thinking principles around personas, story mapping, and prototyping. Product managers need to know and appreciate product designer tools and processes. By combining these principles with good scrum processes, youll learn to create great products that dont sacrifice design for functionality or feasibility.
