Think of a problem or challenge you had to solve at work recently. How did you approach it? Did you find yourself overwhelmed with the number of possible solutions? Were you unsure how to even start? Design thinking can help.
Design thinking is a five-step human-centered process for creative problem solving. It was popularized by the Stanford d.school and IDEO, and has been used by organizations around the world to solve knotty problems. It is all about understanding your user's needs and solving the right problem. By using this human-centered design approach, you can develop products and services that truly help your user.
This course is meant to serve as an introduction to the principles of design thinking and touches on ways you can implement it in your workplace. The material is best suited for students who are new to design thinking or want a refresher on the core concepts. Luckily, design thinking can be applied to almost any field; no matter what your profession, design thinking can help you discover and implement the best solutions to problems you encounter.
In this course, you will:
Apply the 5-step design thinking process to a design challenge in your organization.
Empathize with your users through interviews and observations, in order to take a human-centered approach to a challenge.
Define your core problem by synthesizing and analyzing information gathered during your empathy work.
Ideate solutions to your problem by brainstorming using "How might we..." statements.
Prototype your ideas rapidly to identify the best possible solution for your problem.
Test your prototypes with users to gather feedback on your proposed solution.
Pitch design thinking to your team or organization using storytelling.
You will spend the duration of this course completing your own design thinking project, solving a design challenge of your choice. Each section contains activities that help you apply each step of the process to your design challenge. I've also provided a workbook for you to complete as you progress through this course with all the templates you need to complete your project. These can also serve as resources as you bring design thinking to your own day-to-day work!
My name is Laura Pickel, and I'll be your instructor in this course. After learning design thinking as a student at the d.school, I've continued to both use and teach design thinking at a variety of organizations, including IDEO, Lyft, SAP, and the d.school.

**Course Updated - Oct 2018**
World finally understands the essential role of design. Products look better than ever, interfaces feel intuitive, and companies are hiring designers at an increasing rate. But, the designer’s role has been changing over last few years. It’s no longer enough to iterate and understand your user, instead in today’s world, designers should be able to do both – identify problems and build solutions, which will increase their worth by at least 10 times for any company. When you can do both, you can do things that no one else can do and you will be a unique asset in your company.
There’s a shift under way in large organizations, one that puts design much closer to the center of the enterprise. But the shift isn’t about aesthetics. It’s about applying the principles of design for better user experience. This new approach is in large part a response to the increasing complexity of modern technology and modern business.
Most people don't think about how poorly designed everyday interactions are until they learn the principles of good design and user experience, many of which are not intuitive. You don't need to be born thinking about this stuff in order to become a successful designer, it's a skill that can be developed like anything else. Passion often follows from knowledge and expertise.
In this course, I have explained the entire design process which when integrated into your product can create an amazing user experience. You will also learn to approach a problem in a systematic manner. Working in a series is the most important stage of the design process. The ability to experiment, to value and learn from mistakes, and build on the experience achieved is the hallmark of a the truly successful and creative individual, whatever the field.

I chose catia for my designs because it is, as you no doubt know, one of the most used 3D programs by great companies like: Boeing, Bombardier Aéronautique, Michelin, Renault, LG, Thales, nokia and so many others.
I wanted to create a series of courses entitled: IMD, first to fulfill a dream I’ve always had about designing mechanical machines and second, and no less important, I wanted to share with you my know-how, and the experiences I’ve gained along quite a few years.
The first course of the series is going to be: how to design a nailing table?

However, the object is to work on the weaknesses of the existing products and make our product:
-comfortable to use

Designing for humans is tough. We design for millions, but every interaction between our work and a user is personal, and we aren’t taught to take care with those interactions. I created this course because I want everything we design to meet the real needs and wants of real people.
This course draws from my recent book with Sara Wachter-Boettcher, Design for Real Life and is best for learners who are new to design or looking to strengthen their emerging user experience design skillset. And since design is everywhere, a wide range of professionals will benefit from this course.
If you want a set of tools for stress-testing your work to make sure it’s as human-centered, compassionate, and inclusive as possible, this is the course for you.
By the end of the course, you will have gone through practical exercises around how to challenge your vision and design a compassionate user research process; seen how to improve interviews and talk to real people about their user experiences with your product; explored new ways to think outside as well as inside the box; and practiced ways to avoid the tunnel vision we all too often develop about our own work.

It is easier to make more money and more sales from your existing customers than to find new customers! Learn to maximize revenue from your current customers. Re-filmed for 2021.
Imagine if your current customers who just buy something from you once would buy something from you on a regular basis, maybe every month. That would mean a 1200% increase in revenue from just that same customers. And if they remain a customer the following year that would be 2400% and even more if they remain a customer longer.
How good would it be if you could make 10x or 20x from each customers? That would put your business and your monthly income on a whole new level, right? Take whatever amount you are making today and multiply it by 10. Do you want that kind of an income? Of course you do.
This is why in this course I added a number of common methods to adjust your revenue model and the way you monetize to get people to become repeat customers. Of course, not all your customers will become repeat clients, but many of them will, and you will make much more money form them.

Success in no accident. While national languages and cultures may divide us - from money & banking to the workings of common inheritance, humanity shares far more best practices than most new software design students usually appreciate.
In a like manner, while documentation standards and illustration conventions also have their particularities, from cave-paintings to modern Storyboards, and UML - what the designing-world needs now is allot less intimidation... and a lot more collaboration!
This training opportunity has therefore been designed to encourage new designers to focus upon the common, as well as intuitive, best design & documentation practices, rather than design-camp peculiarities. While core and key documentation strategies will be covered in follow-on sessions, the focus of Design 1000 is to get you started confidently & competently creating the type of documentation that your communities need to start documenting product - as well as project - ideas as quickly as possible.
When professionally documenting project requirements I have discovered that sharing a community-approved picture, can indeed save most from reading well over 1000 words. Thereafter combined with industry best-practices, cultural-specific explanations, savvy technology expertise - and perhaps a dash of humor - is a great way to ensure that our designs are understood. An amazing recipe to ensure any undertakings ultimate "Testing Success!"
So from tenured advice on how to avoid undo criticism, to industrial-savvy advice on how to manage your own documentation creation & design life-cycles, Design 1000 is written to maximize your learning experience, while minimizing the design-speak.

Students: 1322, Price: Paid
Physical designers and CMOS fabrication team communicates with each other, and this course says it 'How?'
While physical designers use all the outputs from experiments performed by fabrication department, this course will demonstrate the best of both worlds and connect them through exchange of certain files in certain format
This way, custom layout designers get to know an insight how does fabrication works, fabrication engineers get to know, how layout engineers uses their information. So this course is a place where both meet, talk and connect.
Also, the standard files needed to draw and simulate layout, are being taken, deduced and created from scratch and on the fly. This is, by far, the best way to understand layout, and I can promise you an exciting journey throughout this course
Course is structured to explain the CMOS packaging and fabrication steps in beginning, followed by software and files used to draw and simulate layout, and look into DRC rules.
Next, we will take a simple CMOS inverter and apply all concepts learned above. Finally, we will learn the 'Art of layout' using Euler's path. This is where you will solve complex functions and draw a layout out of it.
Welcome you all to my course and Happy Learning!!
See you in class!
