This project-centered course provides a guided opportunity for you to practice your agile development skills. Using the venture design process that frames the four courses in this Specialization, you will apply agile processes to a project of your choice or to a provided venture concept. From persona, problem scenario, and user story development to designing user testing and product launch, you’ll practice leading an agile project. You’ll finish the course with a portfolio-building design brief that demonstrates your learning and specialized skills in agile product development. To get the most out of this course, we suggest you first complete the other four courses in the Agile Development Specialization: Agile Meets Design Thinking; Running Product Design Sprints, Managing an Agile Team, Testing with Agile. As a Project Management Institute (PMI®) Registered Education Provider, the University of Virginia Darden School of Business has been approved by PMI to issue 40 professional development units (PDUs) for this course, which focuses on core competencies recognized by PMI. (Provider #2122) This course is supported by the Batten Institute at UVA’s Darden School of Business.

I have finished my journey couple weeks ago and still wait for someone to review my submission. I am going to pay 2 extra months having finished my course much earlier. It is just not fair.

I thought the first four courses were great. This one not so much.

It's clear that the Venture Design Template (VDT) is a living, breathing document (as it should be) and that this course's instructions were based on a previous iteration of the document.

As a result, the homework instructions will refer to sections of the VDT that no longer exist.

In one of the Course 4 lectures, guest speaker Jim Rose states that 20% of time should be devoted to maintenance of existing features - I wish this course had gotten the maintenance that it needs.

Even when one gets beyond the issue identified above, homework instructions are a bit vague.

In previous courses you could see the grading rubric prior to submitting an assignment - this helped clarify what you were supposed to submit. For this course you'd only see the rubric after submission. Often, when reviewing classmates' work I'd think "I wish I'd known I was supposed to do that too."

Overall this resulted in a frustrating user experience and a lot of wasted time.

I spent extra time trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do (I want to spend my time doing - not figuring out what I'm supposed to do).

And I spent extra time grading - it was clear my classmates' were similarly confused (and it takes longer to grade and provide feedback on work that doesn't check all the boxes than one that does).

Simple suggestion to fix all of this: eliminate the dependency between this course and the VDT.

For each week's homework assignment create a submission template.

That would help students better understand exactly what they're supposed to submit each week and eliminate the problems that arise when the VDT is updated.

It might sound strange, but there are only a few good courses that really deal with agile development. This course is definitly one of them. I have enjoyed the format of this course and the journey it took me through. The live interviews with experts from the industry are a great bonus to the learning. Thank you Alex!.

I totally recommend this course. Well prepared, interesting interviews done by Alex to several professional with well-known reputation, good explanations, and well-prepared exercises. It’s totally worth to invest your time and money if you want to start in Agile.

I did learned another 4 Agile courses before this course. When I start this course, it is the reviewing of my previous assignments again. It makes me understand clearly.

The content is outstanding. Very clear instructions and very informative, but it suffers from the "tragedy of the forums", if you have any question or is struggling with the content, you are by your own.

Excellent course and with milestone exercises it makes you understand the concept very well.It is better to be done than just only read and listen.It makes you do this.

the course is good only if you have passed all 4 previous. Otherwise it might be too complicated.
