Learn how to make space for designers and researchers to do user-centered design in an Agile/scrum engineering environment. By creating an explicit Discovery process to focus on customer needs before committing engineers to shipping code, you will unlock design’s potential to deliver great user experiences to your customers. By the end of this class, you will have built a Discovery Kanban board and learned how to use it to plan and manage the work of your team. Prior knowledge of user-centered design will help you understand and apply the concepts in this course. You don’t need any formal authority at your company, such as by managing people, to implement the ideas in this course. You just need the desire to affect change.
