Application Task #1: Identifying Your Critical Assumptions

  • Reflect on your current understanding of prototyping and how the information in this course differs from your current understanding.
  • If you are working in a team, discuss how you can use low-fidelity prototypes to align potentially different assumptions and positions in your team.
  • Create a list of the most critical assumptions regarding your product idea.
  • Prioritize your list and identify the “make or break” assumptions.
  • Frame these assumptions as testable hypotheses and find several ways for how each hypothesis can be tested.
  • Invest some time to identify additional “blind spots” in your current assumptions (i.e. what don’t you know about yet or cannot create rough predictions for).

Reflection exercise: List your hypotheses and explain your thoughts behind each of them.
