In your own words, what is the "Discovery" phase and what is your relevant experience in it?

IDEAL CANDIDATE

We are looking for "discovery" experience. The discovery phase is where you undertake all the research you need in order to fully scope and plan your entire digital project. It should always be the first step in the process. The discovery phase aims to gain a detailed understanding of stakeholders and the end customer in order to produce a better performing product.

Within the discovery phase, it is vital to understand in depth, the needs of the business. What are the fundamental business goals that must be achieved? What are the aspirational targets? What are the different needs of the various stakeholders across the organization? How is success defined and how can any potential barriers be overcome? What dependencies are there to ensure a smooth delivery? Bringing together stakeholders from across the business, from top management to customer-facing staff will help ensure that from the outset, objectives and priorities are clear and agreed upon by everyone.
