2. Visualize product architecture
Translate our list of features into a network of logical, dead-end free, user-flows.
I used LucidChart, a collaborative visual task-flow diagramming software, to map and sequence each feature in relation to one another. Translating each feature into a visual object that comes before, after, or simultaneously relative to another enabled our team to understand a hypothetical user's flow of possible actions. We worked through multiple iterations on these diagrams with the goal of reducing the overall number of choices and clicks, trimming away redundant connections, and locating dead-ends.
