The Discovery Process

  • Set the stage

    Building a 360° overview of your business and customers.

    Discovery begins with our experts learning about your current business position, target market and future goals through a series of interactive meetings, workflows and surveys. This means hosting stakeholder interviews, leveraging our technological expertise, uncovering insights from your user data and analyzing competitors. Together with Spiria, we form the team.

  • Define

    Determining short-term needs and long-term business goals.

    Based on the information collected, the team collaboratively identifies both business and user needs, defines the key objective of the Discovery process and determines the KPIs that help your business aim for the best return on investment.

  • Ideate

    Combining insights with expertise to generate innovative ideas.

    We pair Spiria's experience in product development and expertise in customer and user experience with the team's newfound insights from the previous stages. The team brainstorms unexplored opportunities and solutions to objectives that support business goals. In this stage, we collaboratively define functionalities, ideate feature sets and sketch visual layouts.

  • Create

    Bringing our research and ideas to life.

    Armed with solid data and innovative ideas, the team creates prototypes that bring the defined top task journeys to life and create product design concepts to capture brand direction. Our experts also deliver data-driven persona documentation alongside product lifecycle information. With everything in place and a clear development roadmap, the team is ready to move forward to a low-risk and minimal-waste production cycle.
