Already in the phase before the actual development starts, it makes sense to involve a user centred view in the project. Only a planned starting point guarantees that any following steps lead to a satisfying result, avoid mistakes in decisions and hence also avoid additional costs later. 

So the right questions to ask – already at the beginning of the project – are for example:

  • What exactly makes your interface, service or product valuable for the users?
  • What kind of requirements, needs, barriers and expectations do your users and customers have?
  • Which ones are the existing resp. potential user groupds?
  • Are there any prospects, which you – as project manager – can not take?
  • In which situations and contexts will your system or product be used?
  • Do you know your competitor’s strengths and weaknesses? What kind of inputs can you gain from this?
  • What are the trends and developments and what kind of findings does science offer at the moment?

Questions and answers in the phase of analysis

In the phase of analysis, we answer these questions, make place for the perspective of the people and define which needs, expectations and wishes are connected with your system.

Services in the phase of analysis (excerpt)

To evaluate the starting point of your project, we offer – individually matching your situation – the following services:
