  • Define – Next we need to clearly define and articulate all the challenges, needs, and wants.
  • Ideate – Once our challenge areas are defined, we can now explore different approaches to come up with solutions for the problem at hand.
  • Prototype – Once we have a great idea, it is now time to prototype our solution and bring it to life.   
  • Test – Before we implement the solution, it is important to test it and then revisit any of the earlier mentioned steps as per what we learn from every step.
