Starting a web or mobile project? Begin with an interactive software prototype
Jumping straight into development without usability testing on an interactive software prototype results in directionless project management, wasteful spending and finished (or unfinished) products that lack impact.
Too many businesses start creating apps before they really understand how the app will deliver value (and whether that value is worth the investment).
Keep reading to evaluate the health of your project concept before you start developing, and quiz yourself with the four test questions provided below.

4 Questions to Determine Your Need for an Interactive Software Prototype
Are you kept awake at night by the memory of failed projects that ran over budget or failed to ship on time? Research shows that up to 64% of the software features that are built are never or rarely used.
If your company is thinking about starting a web or mobile project, we encourage you to ponder the following questions before taking next steps:
Self-Evaluation | Question 1
Have you planned to do research on the needs of your users to make sure that your product will have a high rate of adoption, rather than a high rate of frustration?
Self-Evaluation | Question 2
Have you identified all of the necessary features and functions that your custom software will require so that you can accurately estimate the cost of development and plan a timely, successful launch of your minimum viable product?
Self-Evaluation | Question 3
What about workflow? Do you already know how to create a discoverable and intuitive path for your users so they can get the most out of your application? Or do you need to do more usability testing?
Self-Evaluation | Question 4
Do you even know for sure that there are people out there who want this solution in the first place?
If you’re lacking the answer to any of these questions, you should start by building an interactive software prototype, especially before you commit to a software estimate.
