A specific discovery and strategy phase is an important part of any large development project. It allows all parties involved (stakeholders, project managers, designers, software developers, etc.) to clearly understand the technical and creative aspects of the project before any actual development happens. It efficiently maps out how the project development should proceed.

In this 22-minute webinar, Jeff explains why discovery and strategy are an important piece of any project, large or small. He then proceeds to walk you through the entire sequence of events and the processes and exercises that happen at each step.

Some of the topics covered in this webinar include:

  • When a discovery and strategy phase required
  • What components make up an effective discovery and strategy phase
  • The project canvas, information architecture, user stories, prototyping
  • Technical specifications and architecture
