Ask DN: Product research process

    For me, I find that it depends on what I'm researching. If the feature, functionality etc... has been tried and tested and proves to work, I try not to reinvent the wheel and move into assimilation mode into my wire-frame, low-high fidelity prototype and screenshots. This process usually lasts half a day to a full day (depending on the complexity of the puzzle).

    If it's something new and there's very little out there that addresses this particular puzzle I'm trying to solve, then I research not more than 2 days and start solving the puzzle. User testing will confirm the hypotheses used.

    Hope this helps.
