A comprehensive list of website or application features
Our digital features workshop is a first step to creating a website specification, user stories or a shared place of understanding for your stakeholders.
“The Vu team have great strategic knowledge, helping us to make the right decisions on everything from tech stack and security to deployment and analytics.”
As a leading small business UX design agency, we recommend a meaningful approach to capturing essential features of your new website or web application that captures your business and customer needs while setting stakeholder expectations.
We will facilitate a workshop to prioritise features using agile principles which help stakeholders make informed decisions about budgets, ambitions and viability.
Objectives of building a website specification
With an exploratory approach, all voices in your stakeholder group are heard and no ideas are wrong. We’ll explore the wants and needs of stakeholders, customers and get the stakeholder team to share a common vision.
Understanding everyone’s needs forms the start of a website specification, for complex projects we may suggest multiple sessions.
We’ll do exercises in prioritisation to seed attitudes that permit effective compromise and create a list of potential features that can build the foundations of a web technical specification using agile MOSCOW techniques.
If you don’t undertake an effective scoping session then you may end up with a vast array of quotes and assumptions for your new application, making the buying process incredibly difficult.
Partner with a team of digital experts who will help you construct an effective brief for a digital agency – after over a decade in digital we should know a good brief when we see one!
