What Is the Discovery Phase
Successful product management begins before you start building your digital product. Before writing the first line of code, you need to understand the intricacies of your product idea through a product discovery exercise. Only by doing so will you be able to come up with the right features and design components to guarantee your users a powerful experience, and most importantly, how to build them through the correct product management approach.
The discovery phase of digital products can help you gain important insights into the best way to develop and design your product idea. Additionally, it may also help determine an estimation of what it will cost to build your digital product as you envision it.
The Difference Between Ideation and Discovery
Many people think that Ideation and product discovery are the same. While Ideation helps structure, design, and refine your digital product’s idea, the discovery phase helps you understand and address in detail some of the critical aspects related to product management.
These critical aspects of product discovery include, among other things:
- The tasks involved in building your digital product
- The number of hours involved in executing these tasks
- Business model recommendations
- The cost of moving forward with your project
Koombea’s Proven Product Discovery Process
A Successful Digital Product Discovery Approach
Understanding your digital product through a product discovery exercise requires more than just laying out its development and design requirements. Besides delivering a powerful experience to your target audience, you must also consider your business model and its implications. That is why our product discovery process goes beyond mere technicalities, digging deeper into the strategic solutions your digital product needs.
We achieve this by breaking down the key components of your product idea, helping you get to the necessary level of detail to make crucial decisions that will benefit your digital product in the long term. Ideally, after the product discovery phase is complete, you should end up with a clear product management plan.
