Start With Product Ideation
In the software world, most product ideas don't make it to the market. Even worse, most fail once they reach an audience. Through our Ideation workshops, we minimize these risks by gathering user feedback and reviewing proposed ideas before you move forward with software development.
Innovative solutions don't just appear out of nowhere. Building a software product that addresses your target audience's critical pains and surpasses customer expectations requires research, analysis, and iteration.
By prioritizing the Product Ideation process and focusing on the development of a clear software solution concept definition, you will be able to establish a clear and robust customer feedback workflow to test fresh ideas through a structured process. That way, any new idea will be tested by experts before it is moved into full development.
At Koombea, we are not just savvy app developers and designers. As your development partners, we will help you identify good ideas by sharing our honest opinion on what best suits your needs. Only through multiple product iterations and a clear product roadmap can we deliver world-class products that harness major industry trends.
What Is Ideation?
Whether you want to develop an app, a website, or any other software-related project, you will first need to undergo an idea generation process. You will also need to refine and validate existing assumptions. Otherwise, you run the risk of using false premises to develop your project.
Product Ideation can help a product manager, product owner, or other team members work with the right premises. At Koombea, we use our very own Agile-based approach specifically thought out for software development. Using design thinking and other practices, we iterate to refine and explore ideas so that you can succeed.
This allows you not only to create ideas but also to analyze and evaluate proposed ideas based on their viability and feasibility. At the same time, it helps you prioritize user feedback based on usage patterns to build a clear product roadmap. In the short and long term, this is exactly what your product needs to guarantee high customer retention.
Koombea's Proven Product Ideation Process
At Koombea, software Product Ideation services are a vital part of the development services we offer our partners. Ideation is about more than just coming up with a good idea for an application.
When we do Product Ideation, we will help your organization generate ideas it can use for its app. In addition, we will perform target audience analysis, offer a technology stack proposal for your software product, and help your company look for additional business opportunities related to its software product.
At Koombea, we will help your business take its product vision and see it through the product development process. We believe that the most promising ideas should receive in-depth research and analysis to ensure that there is a complete understanding of product concept and how it impacts business goals.

It's alright if you do not have the technical expertise to undergo a full-fledged development process. We got your back for anything product management and technology-related. Our team members are experts in building robust and scalable software products that deliver great UX by carefully implementing user feedback.

Understand industry trends, your problem statement, and how to solve challenges in a strategic way with our unique approach.
Build great wireframes, epics, and user stories to develop a magnificent Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and start testing your product's User Experience (UX). Use your resources wisely and maximize your output.

Workshops + Koombea =
Program – What’s the agenda?
Our Ideation sessions are scheduled to last 1 day, and in some exceptional cases, they can last up to 2 days. Ideally, workshops require the physical presence of the entire team, although they can also be done remotely. We are available to travel to your location.
Participants – Who can join?
We recommend your team is made up of no more than 8 participants, preferably people who have the authority to make decisions and the vision to disrupt the status quo of the market you are targeting. Koombea is usually represented by a Level 10 team member and 1 or 2 ideation experts. This can be defined prior to the workshop.
Deliverables & Goals – What will you get?
You will receive a work breakdown structure (WBS) with epics, user stories, assumptions, high-level architecture, service blueprint, sitemap, wireframes, prototype (high level/detail views), and cost and man-hours estimations. These documents will help you translate your app's requirements into actionable items. Our team will explain these deliverables so you can make sense of them.
