Frequently Asked Questions

I’m still working through my idea and don’t have a design or development team yet. Where can I learn about the whole product development process?

Product Development is executed in a stage process. It’s best to start by ideating the final product, and then work backwards to consider all the steps it will take to get there. Of course, expert support from those who have done it before is very beneficial. 

I’m part way through the design or development process and things aren’t working out. How do I recover and move forward again??

No one likes that sinking feeling that you are no longer on the same page with your development team. Before finger pointing commences,  make sure you’ve documented a roadmap for the development, and try for re-alignment with all parties before looking at alternatives. Even if you’ve had it, and want to move on, you’ll still need to convey where you are and where you want to be with someone else and that roadmap will come in handy.
