In Elixir Wizards Office Hours Episode 2, "Discovery Discoveries," SmartLogic's Project Manager Alicia Brindisi and VP of Delivery Bri LaVorgna join Elixir Wizards Sundi Myint and Owen Bickford on an exploratory journey through the discovery phase of the software development lifecycle.

This episode highlights how collaboration and communication transform the client-project team dynamic into a customized expedition. The goal of discovery is to reveal clear business goals, understand the end user, pinpoint key project objectives, and meticulously document the path forward in a Product Requirements Document (PRD).

The discussion emphasizes the importance of fostering transparency, trust, and open communication. Through a mutual exchange of ideas, we are able to create the most tailored, efficient solutions that meet the client's current goals and their vision for the future.

Key topics discussed in this episode:

  • Mastering the art of tailored, collaborative discovery
  • Navigating business landscapes and user experiences with empathy
  • Sculpting project objectives and architectural blueprints
  • Continuously capturing discoveries and refining documentation
  • Striking the perfect balance between flexibility and structured processes
  • Steering clear of scope creep while managing expectations
  • Tapping into collective wisdom for ongoing discovery
  • Building and sustaining a foundation of trust and transparency
