Discovery is the single most underrated phase of software development. Too often companies rush through the discovery process because they think they already know what they need. Then, halfway through development, they get blindsided by something that would have been easy to handle at the beginning but now threatens to derail the entire project.
According to a report from the Project Management Institute (PMI), 14 percent of IT projects fail totally - of the projects that didn't fail outright, 31 percent didn't meet their goals, 43 percent exceeded budgets, and 49 percent were late. BUT WHY???
Failure to interpret the question “what are we trying to achieve?”, to document a clear vision and identify the solution through not only the eyes of the stakeholder but also neglecting to consider the end user experience can lead to the capitulation of a project.
The discovery process is most critical. This is an engaging process where a deep dive is performed to understand all the stakeholders and the solution. It is a collaborative and constructive effort. This is a unique process in which the client is involved throughout the entirety of the project working seamlessly with the team at MoxēHub.

This is where we establish the overall project process, scope, prioritization, competitive analysis and the product roadmap
This is where we define the product further, write user stories, gather requirements, deliverables. Is it a system, part of, binary or singular?
