This course was an excellent introduction to Agile, particularly for a 'newbie'. Having heard about Agile I've been interested in learning more and found this course to be exactly what I needed.

A nice introduction of the prerequisites that will further allow the implementation of agile methodologies. Very well structured and well documented. The assignments are also very practical.

The value of this course exceeded my expectations. The course contains lots of useful, relevant and well-structured information related to Agile practices and Design Thinking. I knew about Agile before taking the course, and had been practicing it for some time in one way or another, but this course has greatly improved my understanding of basic principles of agile and, more importantly, taught me some very specific approaches and methodologies which can be applied to real-life projects.
I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in Agile or IT development in general.

I only have read books on Agile. This course has been very valuable in the months since I have taken it.

I really loved this course on agile because it introduces Personas and user stories in enough detail to get started. Needless to say the videos are pleasant to watch and the materials are very comprehensive. I didn't subscribe for the certificate because I won't be applying agile to software design.

Very good course. Excellent material and good coverage of the subject matter. Lecturer does a very good job of presenting the information in a clear, easy to understand manner. Exercises are well thought out and provide practical experience with the material. All and all great course. Can't wait to take the second part of this series.

I really liked the teacher and the course. With rich examples and study cases that usually are not find in this kind of courses. I found this course with the correct balance between theoretical and practical parts.

First course of the specialisation "Agile Development Specialization".
You will learn Agile origins, how to create personas, problem scenarios and alternatives.
You will search for a good software idea and create a storyboard.
It's a really interesting and complete course.
I recommend this course if you are ready to do all the specialisation because doing this course only makes no sense.

Really great course that gives a profound overview as well as demos and exercises to practice important steps like writing personas and problem scenarios. Great resources also on the professor's website that are integrated in the course and are really helpful.
Thank you, Alex & team!
I can really recommend this course and the entire specialisation.

although this is my first time in learning about Design thinking, I'm happy to say that I love the way Coursera put together the specialization.
I am really excited about what I have learnt so far, most especially in this first week alone! for instance I got to here about the importance of instrumenting observation at the design and experimentation stage of a product and releasing in small batches as way of achieving expected outcome.
I look forward to more opportunities to learn more about Design Thinking under Coursera and her partner institutions.
