for my Product Strategy. It notably helped me define the business problem I’m trying to solve, listing benefits my users will gain from using this product, and I brainstormed on some feature ideas.
Using this material, I was ready to create prototypes of the pages for teams and players that my project might generate.
A prototype is an early sample, model or example of a product created to test the concept. It is the step between the evaluation of an idea and the formalization.
I identified the first following prototypes:
A team page, designed in a light theme
A team page, designed in a dark theme
A player page
They will be used for the validation of my project concept by conducting user research. I skipped the wireframe step and directly designed user interfaces, hi-fidelity prototypes. One advantage to work alone, I already had ideas about the User Experience (UX) of the pages, their features and look.
Minimum Valuable Product
After the creation of the prototypes, if my User Research validates my project concept, I will have to define the MVP (Minimum Valuable Product) and start developing it.
Wikipedia gives the following definition for a MVP:
A minimum viable product (MVP) is a version of a product with just enough features to be usable by early customers who can then provide feedback for future product development.
