Master the Essential Steps of Rapid Prototyping and Create at Hyper Speed

We are at war with guessing and wishful thinking regarding new product ideas. We saw the embarrassing failures of Zune, the Fire Phone, Segway and countless others. Their common trait - they were just guesses.

Had they checked the product early with users, they could avoid failure and worked with them to build a worthwhile product. The good news is that you don't have to repeat the mistakes of the past.

You should adopt a Pordicut Discovery process at the start of the journey, and essential to that is rapid prototyping. It is so vital that I have just made a fresh new course on rapid prototyping.

Here's what you'll learn:

  • Understand why prototyping works
  • Plan and run a rapid prototyping session
  • Recruit a team to prototype
  • Validate Problem Solution Fit

Rapid prototyping is a powerful tool for product designers and entrepreneurs because it allows them to quickly and efficiently test and validate their ideas while minimizing the time and resources required for product development.

Here are a few reasons why rapid prototyping is so powerful:

  1. Iteration: Rapid prototyping allows designers and entrepreneurs to iterate on their ideas quickly and frequently, allowing them to refine and improve their product designs in a much shorter timeframe.
  2. User Feedback: By creating prototypes, designers and entrepreneurs can get feedback from users early in the design process, which can help them identify potential issues and make adjustments before investing significant time and resources into development.
  3. Cost-effective: Rapid prototyping is often much more cost effective than traditional product development methods, as it allows for quick and low-cost iterations and modifications.
  4. Time-efficient: Rapid prototyping also helps save time in product development, allowing designers and entrepreneurs to identify and resolve issues quickly, avoiding delays later in the development process.

Rapid prototyping allows designers and entrepreneurs to quickly and efficiently test and refine their ideas, leading to better products and a more streamlined product development process.

Some inspirational quotes about Rapid Prototyping.

  1. "The best way to predict the future is to create it." - Peter Drucker
  2. "Prototyping is a fundamental part of the innovation process." - Tim Brown
  3. "If you're not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you've launched too late." - Reid Hoffman
  4. "Fail fast, fail often, but always fail forward." - John C. Maxwell
  5. "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." - Steve Jobs
  6. "Prototype as if you are right, listen as if you are wrong." - Diego Rodriguez
  7. "Prototype early and often, even if it's just on paper." - Tom Kelley
  8. "The prototype is the key to success in any product development process." - Yves Behar
  9. "The prototype is worth a thousand meetings." - Tom Kelley
  10. "Innovation is taking two things that exist and putting them together in a new way." - Tom Freston
