User Insights for Product Decisions

Learn to make key product decisions based on a deeper understanding of customers.

As a product leader, you will spend the rest of your career making decisions based on user feedback. To make great decisions, just talking to users isn't enough. First, you must carefully define the business decision and understand the evidence needed to make that decision. Then use research methods from this program to gather evidence and synthesize insights into a compelling storyline that guides the organization to the right choices. This is not an intro-to-research course. It's about using research to make great decisions and drive innovation.
