What will I get out of the discovery phase
In short, the Discovery phase produces a blueprint for success. This blueprint is a collection of artefacts that range from technical architecture and feature scope documents, to execution strategies and plans. We also produce prototypes and proof-of-concept software artefacts for any feasibility studies that need to be performed. There are four steps in the Discovery phase. The Identify and Assess steps are where we take stock of everything. The Design and Plan steps are where we produce the blueprint for you.
What are the risks of building a product without a discovery phase
There are two key aspects to building and launching a successful digital product into the market, building things right and building the right thing. Without a proper Discovery phase, you run the risk of building the wrong solution, one that doesn't meet your success criteria. The long term cost of building the wrong solution can be insurmountable and result in the untimely death of a digital product. A proper Discovery can not only guarantee the successful delivery of a Market Ready Product, but it can also enable you to reach Product Maturity and stay ahead of your competition.
