Discover: Recommended Path
Complete the discover phase step by step
Once challenges are identified, it is necessary to look at them closer to find focus areas and identify concrete requirements. This is done through scoping, research and synthesis. The exercises presented here are our suggestion to get the most out of this phase. We suggest completing them in the order proposed below.
At the end of the Discover Phase, you will be able to
- Understand the business problem from an end-user perspective
- Discover insights that can help you generate ideas for design
- Understand your technical landscape and map to the business case
- Lay the groundwork for developing the technical aspects of the solution.
Get a better understanding of the project scope by brainstorming and clustering different perspectives.
