Drawing the Map

The discovery process is the first stage of development and is a cross-functional exercise in scoping the problem, assigning value and identifying areas of risk.

By aligning to the importance of user problems and desired business outcomes, and investigating the current system infrastructure, discovery results in a phased plan for development of a validated solution, a concept for a lean, minimum viable product.

High functioning teams have varied perspectives

To ensure we build the most valuable product, we must intimately understand the users, behaviors and problems we are attempting to solve for them and any other business objectives associated with the project. Through user research, affinity and journey mapping, we understand user profiles and behavior, their pain points and how they will interact with the product and link these to our most important business outcomes. We challenge assumptions in order to uncover the most important problems worth solving. 

A strategic approach to iteration and priority

With a sound understanding of user pain points, the problem to be solved and strategic business initiatives, we can begin to ideate potential solutions, converge on the ones most likely to reach your objectives, and build a roadmap to align the team and the project with the product vision. With our deep and validated understanding of the user, we can prioritize workflow and backlog, aligning on the order of priority of features and specifications for how we will validate our solutions. Through design-thinking workshops, prototypes and wireframes, we allow for the agile and iterative unfolding of optimized, validated solutions.

A blueprint for lean solutions

De-risking in the discovery phase means proposing the leanest solution possible with a focus on testing and learning. Building incremental discovery into the project reduces risk as we increase the known factors and clarify the unknown. We conduct in-depth analyses of the existing systems and points of integration to best estimate what and how we will build. We define the minimum viable product (MVP) around the most critical learnings needed in order to iterate in the right direction, ultimately focused on making sure what we build solves real and important problems for users.
