When it comes to getting your idea off the ground and into reality, things can get quite complicated. More often than not, the very beginning of each business opportunity catches you unprepared. That’s why we are here.

There are essentially 5 phases in the project lifecycle along the way.

Establishing and defining the scope, objectives and steps of each one is a crucial task that sets the course for the entire project.

Each business project differs from the previous one and that’s why it’s worth to go through this phase very carefully.

Build engaging products that grows your business.

Phase 1

Project jumpstart & Orientation

Understard the project background and establish the scope and objectives to move things forward.

Just like a good cup of coffee can set a tone for the rest of the day, a good starting plan sets the course for the entire business project.

The first step of every project is to understand the overall business strategy and business goals and have a clear understanding on what we are trying to achieve with the project.

This involves initial kick-off meeting, answering the project questionnaire and getting the basics down.

In the first few meetings with the client, it's crucial to gather as much information as it's possible to get the project pain points out in the open. That will give us the best insight into the project mission and goal in order to build the perfect solution that will meet and exceed the criteria.

Suggested steps

Introduction meeting between the team and the client

Completing the LKnet project questionnaire

Create a strategy plan for the success

Phase 2

Research & Analysis

Creating a bright future for today companies.

As soon as we build a solid understanding of what we're trying to solve here, our team embarks on the research & analysis phase.

The data we come up with in this phase will set the core the entire project will be built around.

By learning based on the data we've gathered on the client's idea, market potentials, current competitors and current & potential users, we'd be able to start working on directions for possible solutions for the project.

That means looking and examining existing data, interviewing and observing potential users and focus groups, creating user personas and journey maps and testing out different ideas and paths.

Giving the whole team a voice is a great opportunity to get a diverse range of ideas and expert opinions that will act as a foundation for the next phase, the design.

Suggested steps

Research market potentials and competitors's approaches

Gather more data and build domain knowledge

Identify best practices and opportunities

Conduct user testing and gather feedback

Create user personas and journey maps

Generate inspiration and ideas

Phase 3

UX/UI & Visual Design

Creating unmatched experience through constant collaboration.

When user expectations, goals and business objectives are clear, we can move through to the design phase.

To fully understand how the design process works, we have to understand the diffrence between the 3 different stages of design; UX, UI and the visual design.

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works."

Steve Jobs

Apple

UX design refers to User Experience Design, a process that focuses solely on the user experience side and how easy or difficult is to interact with the actual product. The objective is to create positive and satisfying experience by anticipating and fullfilling users's needs.

UI design stands for User Interface Design and it's the actual look and feel of the product. The goal is to create an attractive, visually stimulating interface that will match the purpose and personality of the product and the brand.

Visual design is the use imagery, colours, shapes, typography of to form a brand’s unique style and voice.

This process requires a high amount of collaboration and iteration to get the things right. That means building site maps, wireframes, interactive prototypes, style guides and high-fidelity mockups over and over again until we find a perfect solution that works.

Suggested steps

Create sitemaps, wireframes & interactive prototypes

Create brand image and styleguide

Create high-fidelity mockups

Constantly iterate and finalize the design

Phase 4

Development & QA

Accelerate, iterate and deliver.

As the product design has been completed and functionality requirements are set, our development team comes into the role.

We tend to make the development phase as agile as possible, to allow our clients a more effective workflow and a closer collaboration with our team.

As soon as each task is completed, it gets assigned back to a project manager and QA tester for review to ensure a more genuine testing experience. By using a proven process, up-to-date technology stack and constanty testing and improving each segment of the product, we ensure a high-quality product that will match expected results.

Suggested steps

Select effective strategies and the right technology

Develop the front end, back end and server side code

Constantly test and improve the product

Create a maintainable and secure high-quality product

Phase 5

Deployment & Maintenance

Share it with the world.

Now that the product has been fully built out and that it behaves in the way we intended it to, you will be asked to formally approve it. We are ready to begin the final stage of a project to get it into production.

Our team at LKnet will support and guide you through the necessary deployment processes to ensure the best end results for your business. Understanding that creating a high quality product is not a linear process, but rather a cycle is the key here.

Once the product is out in the open, undiscovered issues might start coming. We don’t just finish a project and say goodbye to you. That's when long-term relationship with LKnet comes in handy. We monitor our results and evolve, adapt to new challenges and get things done.

Suggested steps

Prepare final deliverables for the client

Publish the product and share it with the world

Maintain and improve to ensure the best quality
