Discovery workshops

Who is it for?

Our discovery workshops are designed for businesses of all sizes and shapes who want to validate their product idea and turn it into a feasible project, or as the first stage of kicking off a project to get a better understanding of the overall scope, time, and cost of a project.

How it works

We customise each discovery workshop based on the client’s needs, so the workshop structure and outcomes may vary. We establish the scope of the workshop with you prior to the discovery session.

The duration of our discovery workshops will depend on the size and complexity of your project, but they typically take 4-8 hours, with some stretching across 2 days, and are run in-person in our Christchurch-based office, or remotely via Zoom.

Workshop goal

Define the scope of your project, including goals, budget, functional specifications, timeframes, estimates, and expected outcomes.

What will you get?

At the end of our discovery workshop, we create a customised value-driven roadmap proposal that includes:

  • Detailed delivery plan with time and cost estimates

  • Scope of feasible and measurable milestones

  • Technical assessment of your project with suggestions

  • Initial backlog of MVP epics or features

  • Workshop materials, including user journeys, mock-ups, wireframes, and prototypes

Our discovery workshop process

During our discovery workshops, we dive deep into your business challenges and follow the principle of “no stone left unturned”. Be prepared—we ask millions of questions. Why? We want to make sure the solution is a 100% match to your needs.

Project Review and Requirement Gathering

We kick off our discovery session by meeting your key stakeholders, identifying their responsibilities, discussing your project’s vision and high-level goals, and gathering the requirements. This process boils down to asking the right questions about your project needs while gaining a 360-degree understanding of your user perspectives.

Some of the questions we may ask:

  • Who are your end users?

  • What is a problem you’d like to solve?

  • What is your application type? (a web app or a mobile app?)

  • What user journey flow do you have in mind?

… and much more.

User Journeys and Stories

We go through your user personas, discuss the design requirements, and map out user stories, workflows, mock-ups, and wireframes so we can visualise how the end product will look. At this stage, we want to better understand how your users will interact with the product.

Estimations and MVP

Next, we discuss a high-level architecture for building a market-testable Minimum Viable Product (MVP). This involves defining and prioritising the main features for your product or solution as well as creating a detailed product backlog with “nice-to-have” features. After this phase is completed, we provide early MVP estimates including costs, timeframes, and workloads.
