>The next step is to build methods of achieving the goal. At this stage, it is important not to delve into the details, but to evaluate common elements
. How the project will work, what functions will be implemented, how the web application will interact with users, etc. It is very important to consider each item and write it down in the report. In fact, this is a small brainstorm
. Typically, it takes from a few days to a couple of weeks. When the implementation plan is completed, you can begin to collect feedback from future users.
Feedback from users and customers
When you have a ready document with a description of the project and the functions, then you need to get feedback from users or customers. Offer them your solution to a particular problem. Familiarize them with the implementation methods. You will receive many suggestions for improvement. At this point, some of your guesswork will be broken. It is important to listen and collect feedback. There is no need to hurry and change the concept or implement everything that future users are asking for. They don't have an expert evaluation and this is only their proposal.
Idea correction and implementation
It is at this stage that the final proof of the concept takes place. Having received feedback, you can clearly understand how users will interact with your project. What emotions it will cause. It is necessary to understand that this is a preliminary evaluation of the concept. Some recommendations may not have value, as others can significantly affect the further development. Thus, based on the information received, it is necessary considering what can be changed to make the project more convenient. If you received a lot of negative feedback, it makes sense to stop the development process. Or at least think about a new improved version. So, if you really decided to start the development, we recommend starting the design with MVP. The minimal version will allow to develop the project in the shortest possible time and check the idea on real users.
Proof of the concept is one of the important stages in the development of complex and expensive projects. It allows with high probability to determine the value of the project even before the begins development. Typically, the process takes from a few days to a couple of weeks. It gives a clear idea of how the project will work and what functions it will perform. If you approach the feedback analysis process with a clean head, this step in the future can save you money and time.
