How after the initial steps?

You need all this crucial information about both the market and users to move on to scoping the needs and different functionalities for the MVP. You do not want to waste resources on adding features that have no benefit for the users or your business. Another big part of the Product Design Services is the Scoping phase.
This is where your user’s journey is defined. You have to decide how they will interact with the product, how certain parts of it are accessible, and how they are designed to deliver the best user experience. It is vital that all functionalities work – at least on a basic level – effortlessly and that your target audiences’ demands are met.

As a final step validation should be covered too. As mentioned before you do not want to waste time and money. By creating a mockup product it can be measured whether the expectations and ideas are met and whether it makes sense to release the product at that stage. Rushed releases, missed bugs, and bad UX can all lead to poor initial reactions and loss of potential customers or investors.
