Once you have zeroed in on an idea, your product journey is primarily divided into 4 key phases. The design, the decision, the development and the launch phase. To make your product successful, it is important that each phase goes through its cycle in a proper manner. Breaking down the complete process into smaller phases also helps you to plan on that individual cog at a time rather than the full product. You can then work to make that small part count, set up a goal and timeline for it, get help on it and execute it to perfection.
The design phase is mainly focused on discovering the various solutions that are possible and zeroing in on what really works best for end-users. Just like you cannot have a carpenter design your house, your software cannot start with developers. The software has to start with design first. During this phase, you have to make decisions regarding the usability and user experience. You have to prioritize what goes in the product and what stays for later release. This phase results in building a blueprint for the development.
Your primary skill during this phase would be to fix upon your vision and articulate it well with your team. This way the team that would primarily consist of the UX and analysts make decisions in line with your mission.
It would be helpful to understand what constitutes a good design. What makes top apps really tick and what really does your user want?
The steps included in this stage are:
Summarizing this phase, the team gets a complete blueprint ready that becomes the roadmap for the developers to follow. At the end of the design process, the team creates wireframes for the project. The wireframes put everything together with a clear roadmap to follow. Backed on ample user research and a scientific approach the team has now built a strong foundation of the product. Conclusively, the idea is now ready to go into the next stage.
A successful platform has many moving parts. By breaking the journey into smaller manageable steps, you can accomplish small wins every day that can turn easily into a successful product. All of the steps mentioned in this blog will help you as a guiding light as you move toward accomplishing your vision. The design, the decision, the development and the launch phase are all very important steps in the process of creating a new product.
