In June, 2020, I decided to learn more about the full product development lifecycle. I wanted a better understanding of the context that surrounds what I do as a product designer. I enrolled in the Product Manager Nanodegree program with Udacity and learned about product strategy, design, development, and launch.
I chose to create a mobile fitness application for a health insurance company as my nanodegree project. As I went through the course content, I created slide decks applying my new knowledge to my app concept. I created a pitch to prove the viability of the product, a prototype to demonstrate the user experience, and supporting documentation for a successful launch.
The design sprint phase was familiar to me as a designer, but now I also have a thorough understanding of what it takes to bring a product to market. I picked up new research and presentation skills that enhance my ability to design user-centered products that meet pressing needs.
