This course will take you through the product creation journey, from generating a successful app idea all the way through to the structured output that developers will need to create it. It represents the stepping stone between a semi formed app idea and one that is clearly defined and ready for development.
To get to this developer ready point you will cover 5 key steps:
1) How to brainstorm product ideas effectively
2) Agile in development
3) Creating product visions
4) Creating storyboards
5) Creating user stories
Tying these 5 steps together will give you the concise output you need to talk a developer through exactly how to create your app. Beyond this, the output you create will be an exceptional aid for pitching investors with, for example, the vision statement allowing you to concisely summarize your app idea in a paragraph, from the customers it targets, to the needs it solves to how it is differentiated from the competition.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you inside!
