In today's rapidly changing world, everything, from jobs to products, evolves quickly. Major companies and brands now focus on personalized user experiences, leading to new career opportunities like human-centered innovation and user-centered design. Leading business schools such as IESE, Esade, and Stanford also incorporate user-centered design into their programs.

But what is user-centered design (UCD)?

Simply put, UCD means creating products with user needs and feedback in mind. It mainly applies to website and mobile app development. UCD involves deeply understanding what users want in various aspects of a product, like features, tasks, goals, and how they want to interact with it.

Focusing on the user is crucial for a great user experience. It should guide every step the customer takes—no guessing or personal views involved. What matters most is what your users do and say. Every time a customer uses your product, it requires careful study, smart design, and accurate execution.
