About the course
Whether you are designing a physical product or a digital experience, rapid prototyping is one of the best ways to explore and validate an idea with potential users. With rapid prototyping, you build a solution using minimal time, effort, and capital to learn whether your idea is worth pursuing.
Many organizations go wrong by creating a product in search of a user. They invest significant time and money into developing a product that they’re not really sure will work—or that anyone wants to use. Rapid prototyping allows you to flip your approach. You learn what your user needs by developing low-cost, quick ideas to test with your audience. By learning from these early, cheap prototypes, you can quickly iterate based on users’ feedback and identify users in search of a product.
In this hands-on course, we will break down how organizations have successfully used rapid prototyping to develop innovative solutions for their customers’ problems. Using your own project idea or a provided example, you’ll learn which type of prototype is best for different challenges, how to test for assumptions and blind spots, and what to do with your insights so you can iterate for success.
