Some Examples May Help
Problem: You have to sell your investors (or Board of Directors) on a new product concept, but you know they won't grasp it unless they can see it.
Solution: Screen mockups, conceptual diagrams, a "slideshow" prototype.
Problem: You plan to develop a new family of products (or overhaul an existing one). You need to define the look and feel in a way that can be replicated by your development staff.
Solution: Iterative design leading to: custom user interface standards and guidelines, how-to recipes, examples that can be copied, training as needed.
Problem: Your company has just committed to the development of a new product. The annual meeting of your international sales force is coming up and you need to get them excited about what they'll be selling next year.
Solution: Screen mockups, a "slideshow" prototype.
Problem: You are faced with the prospect of porting your product to the Web (or Windows, or Mac OS). You need a preview of the transformation: what might it look like, what are the sticky issues, what are the opportunities for improvement, what will be the impact on your developers, testers, users?
Solution: Trial designs, Issues and Opportunities Audit.
Problem: You want to add a major new capability to your product and you have a general idea of what's involved, but you don't have an in-depth understanding of the features, functions, and consideration needed to do it right.
Solution: Subject Overview or White Paper, Comprehensive Capabilities Report.
Problem: You feel like your products are stuck in a rut. You need a new perspective to break free.
Solution: Design mockups, "what if..." sessions with your staff.
