Once you have clearly defined your Minimum Viable product, have your user stories developed and pointed, it time to describe the flow of data within your product. This helps the team members understand the objective of each user story, and keeps everyone on track. Shown below is an example of one of the data models we created for a project.
A planning tool we found helpful in designing our own business, and helping others plan theirs, is the Lean Canvas. Business plans take too long to write, are seldom updated, and almost never read by others but documenting your hypotheses is key. Lean Canvas solves this problem using a 1-page business model. Sign up now to create a business model that will be read by more people, be more easily updated, and let you focus on building your business – faster. And, it can help you take advantage of the wedge pattern approach, which has been so successful for major players like Twitter and Foursquare, Etsy, Kickstarter, Quora, Instagram, Amazon and Netflix.
Design Winning Products Faster
CabForward℠ is a tightly-knit team of software engineers, architecture designers and support staff who help us create online products designed to win their place in the market. Our Discovery-to-Design approach has saved companies thousands of dollars by avoiding costly missteps. We help discover the unnecessary features and the expensive bottlenecks that cause projects to go over budget.
Proper Design Will Get You to Market Faster
We do this by helping people analyze their product, and apply proper design planning before starting production. Our teamwork approach reduces cost overruns and expensive revisions along the way. Organizations that apply this simple process have a huge advantage over their competition.
No Extra Charge for UI/UX Design
Designing products for a great end user experience is our primary objective. We help you clarify what you want to accomplish with your product, then plan every single process involved in making it happen. That’s when the user experience is planned, right from the very beginning. We make sure the product works beautifully, by design, and then start building and testing it to make sure it is rugged.
The Big Picture and Details are What Win
Our Discovery process means being able to clearly define the high level view for a product, challenging all assumptions, then zooming in to the smallest details to make sure they all fit together in a way that makes sense. This is where most products struggle. They get too focused on decisions about the quality and purpose of a million little details, and forget about the big picture: Do end users need this? Do they want it? Will they use it? This is where we can help. Our team’s experience helps you paint the big picture first, then iron out the details.
