Agile Discovery Workshop
Fastest way to engineer your requirements and take your product from concept to development.
The workshop is a close collaboration between our product strategists, technical and UI/UX experts and our customers. We elicit and validate requirements through stakeholder interviews, UI design walkthroughs and clickable prototypes.
Why we Recommend It
It's the first step to building a successful and awesome tech product. It builds tremendous confidence when moving on to the development phase. We strongly recommend all of our customers to engage with us on a dedicated 1 to 2 week workshop to craft out complete requirements for their projects.
ADW is the best way to reduce inflated and superficial development costs. Our goal is to arrive at the most critical features that add direct business value and get rid of the fat.
We have structured this workshop in a way to ensure that we gather and document an in-depth understanding of your product in the shortest time possible.
During the workshop, we help you identify problem areas and any technical challenges. The goal is to make sure that any high-risk items are identified and dealt early-on.
There is no doubt that 90% of software projects often fail in time, cost or scope. Gathering requirements with ADW is our way of addressing this problem and we have been pretty successful with it.
We've helped launch hundreds of products and our team has been doing this for nearly 15 years. We bring experts to the table and our goal is to make you as educated as possible before making important decisions.
All concerned stakeholders of the product are involved in the process from day one. This way businesses get to build a product that does end up getting used.

We provide Agile Discovery Workshop as an independent service. Although it's a crucial first step for successful development, it doesn't bind you to enter into development with us. However, we are confident that our great value addition during the workshop will compel you to take development forward with us as well.
We charge a minimal fee for the workshop based on the average costs that we typically incur during the extensive process. Usually 8-10 people are working behind the scenes to assess the feasibility of your idea. The only benefit we get from this is the ability to better understand your needs and deliver a desirable end product.

As tempting as it may sound to you, it is usually not the wise thing to do. ADW allows for a deeper understanding of your product idea, what you tend to achieve with it and its technical feasibility.It’s the cornerstone of a successful collaboration between you and your technical partner for the duration of the project. By skipping this crucial step you might be setting your project up for a failure from the very start.
Conducting a comprehensive workshop is paramount to a successful product development and delivery because mostly the client is uncertain of what he expects the finished product to accomplish.Laying down key success parameters and indicators early on eliminates the risk of failure and ultimately saves both time and money.
