A method to test and finalise the details of a design.
- To ensure key stakeholders agree on the goals of a project.
- To ensure the project team is aware of the underlying vision and motivation for doing the work.
- To document key milestones and desired outcomes.
- To agree on roles and responsibilities on the project.
What you get
- An agreed-upon set of assumptions and expectations for the project.
- Documented timelines, milestones and ways of working.
- A briefing document for the project team to refer to.
- Helps build momentum around an idea before launch.
- Gains confidence that the details of a design are usable.
- May not consider implementation constraints.
High-fidelity prototypes should always be tested with users so that flaws in a design are fixed before implementation.
