When you come up with the idea of a mobile application or desktop software, you, probably, see its realization in the most bright colors. However, the implementation of this idea can bring unexpected outcomes and produce quite opposite results. Why does it happen? Maybe because you missed a Discovery stage in your software production life cycle.
Importance of the Discovery Stage for Software Development
The Discovery or Initiation stage is a complex of methods that allow evaluating the feasibility of a project. Not every project that comes to your mind, no matter how brilliant, is worth implementing:
- It may happen that you invest a lot of money and effort into the development of certain software that will be outdated pretty soon.
- To implement your project, you may need specialists whose work you will not be able to pay for.
- You may not find enough stakeholders interested in your project.
