UX Design Fundamentals: Creating business outcomes
How can a UX (user experience) designer add value to a business across all levels and all team levels?
This short UX design course will teach you how the core fundamentals of UX design foster collaborative thinking, drive engagement and ensure better business.
You’ll examine the critical role UX designers play in driving customer experiences by conducting user research, building personas, developing business models, creating wireframes and building prototypes.
Understand how to use business model design in management strategies
One key outcome of this course is to teach you the main elements of a business model for a specific value proposition and its associated business environment. You’ll cover the phases of business model design and innovation and the concept of ‘job to be done’ (JTBD) – a framework based on the idea of user ‘hiring’ (or using) a product to do a specific ‘job’ (or task, to achieve a specific outcome).
Learn the importance of a value stream map and customer profile map
The course will also show you how to use customer profile mapping, or user journey mapping. A user journey map is a model, in illustration or diagram form, of all the touchpoints through which customers come into contact with your company, online or offline.
By knowing how to sketch out a user journey, you’ll be able to forecast any potential friction before creating an actual website or prototype. And by using value stream maps, you’ll know how to identify and analyse the activities associated with the customer journey holistically to determine if the activity is valuable or not.
