Design thinking focuses on how people relate to the products, services, and experiences in their lives and how products can be designed and marketed to meet those relationship needs. A strong design strategy can smooth the path from concept to market for a product. Stanford Continuing Studies design courses are taught by veteran professional experts in the field of design. You will learn and practice the strategies and tools of design research and user experience design: personas, journey maps, brainstorming, and prototyping, to name a few. The knowledge and skills you acquire will apply to the challenges today’s product professionals face, and also to a broad variety of situations you may encounter in everyday life.
