本专项课程介绍

In this Specialization, you’ll gain an understanding and appreciation of the principles and practice of agile management. You’ll learn to coordinate all aspects of the agile development process, including running design sprints, managing teams, and fostering a culture of experimentation. In the final Capstone Project, you’ll apply what you’ve learned to guide a real-world software development project to successful completion.

第 1 门课程

Getting Started: Agile Meets Design Thinking

Upcoming session: 5月 9 — 6月 20.
课程学习时间 5 weeks of study, 3 – 4 hours/week

课程概述
Despite everyone’s good intentions, hard work and solid ideas, too many projects end up creating unneeded, unusable, and unsellable products. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Agile and design thinking offer a different–and effective–approach to product development, one that results in valuable solutions to meaningful problems. In this course, you’ll learn how to determine what’s valuable to a user early in the process–to frontload value–by focusing your team on testable narratives about the user and creating a strong shared perspective.

We’ll show you how to:
– Explain key concepts and practices from the agile product development methodology
– Create a strong shared perspective and drive to value using personas and problem scenarios
– Diagnose what software to develop and why using a set of agile user stories and prototypes
– Facilitate narrative collaboration with user stories and prototypes
– Allow for early testing and validation by analyzing and deciding on story backlogs

第 2 门课程

Running Valuable Design Sprints

Current session: 5月 2 — 6月 13.
课程学习时间 课程时长为五周,每周3-5小时

课程概述
Typically, clients and managers don’t want to pay for design (or strategy) but want to rush toward results. Design sprints allow you to meet clients’ desire for solutions–to develop sooner–and still adjust based on feedback. But not all sprints are alike. In this course, you’ll learn how to run situation-appropriate sprints, whether it’s testing user motivation, interface usability, or solution fit, to avoid waste and deliver value.

We’ll show you how to:
– Plan and conduct a design sprint that delivers valuable, actionable insights
– Effectively test motivation and value propositions
– Effectively test user interface (even without working software)
– Focus and drive to actionable conclusions on questions of approach and architecture

第 3 门课程

Managing an Agile Team

Upcoming session: 5月 9 — 6月 13.
课程学习时间 4周的学习时间,每周需花费3-5小时

课程概述
Traditional development processes often lead to team frustration and poor results. Agile offers a different approach to managing the complexity of software development. This course focuses on the day-to-day jobs of running a software development program and how leading agile methodologies (Scrum, XP, kanban) can help you do them better.

From transitioning a team to agile to running sprints to managing stakeholders, this course gives you the skills you need to manage an agile team in your specific operating environment.

We’ll show you how to:
– Think through and focus on the most important aspects of your projects and sprints
– Facilitate your team’s initial and ongoing adoption of the specific agile practices that work for you
– Anchor your outcomes and success criteria in durable ideas about what makes for valuable products
– Support your team’s transition from traditional approaches to agile
– Create an agile-friendly environment across functional disciplines
– Identify and manage outside stakeholder needs

Running Experiments with Agile

即将开放

课程概述
Agile development promises to deliver better solutions. But to deliver these agile outcomes, you have to do more than implement an agile process; you have to create a culture of experimentation. It’s this commitment to experimenting that’s at the heart of today’s most innovative practitioners. This course shows you how to put this culture into practice across concept testing, usability testing, functional testing, and ongoing feature validation.

We’ll show you how to:
– Translate your product’s strategic direction into a user-centric charter with lots of small, testable ideas
– Design and conduct best practice usability testing (even without working software)
– Use narrative collaboration to focus functional testing
– Integrate functional testing into a more continuous release flow
– Instrument observation into your released product for continuous improvement and innovation accounting

毕业项目

Agile Development Capstone

即将开放

毕业项目介绍
The Capstone project provides a guided opportunity for you to practice your agile development skills. Using the venture design process that frames the four courses in this Specialization, you will apply agile processes to a project of your choice or to a provided venture concept. From persona, problem scenario, and user story development to designing user testing and product launch, you’ll practice leading an agile project. You’ll finish the Capstone with a portfolio-building design brief that demonstrates your learning and specialized skills in agile product management.
