Problem Validation

Problem validation is a method of testing if a problem that you want to solve with your product is real and significant to your target audience. It’s all about getting out of your own head and understanding the problem from the perspective of your users. By doing so, you can better understand their needs and make sure that the solutions you come up with actually address those needs.

By validating your problem, you can save time and resources in the long run, as you’ll have a better understanding of what your users really need.

Some examples of what is covered is highlighted below

Reverse Your Perspective

Reverse your perspective is a technique that helps in thinking creatively by examining a problem or situation from a different perspective.

Is-Is Not- Does- Does Not

The Is-Is Not-Does-Does Not technique is a problem analysis tool used to identify the characteristics and boundaries of a problem. This technique helps to clarify and refine the problem statement by identifying what the problem is, what it is not, what it does, and what it does not do.

The Is-Is Not-Does-Does Not technique involves asking a series of questions to identify the core issues of the problem and help to develop solutions. It’s a simple and effective technique that helps teams to understand the problem better, communicate more effectively, and work together to find a solution.

Problem Statement

A problem statement is a clear, concise, and specific description of an issue or challenge that a product, service, or project aims to address. It identifies the gap between the current state and the desired future state, along with the factors contributing to the problem.

The statement should be focused on the problem’s impact on the user, customer, or business and should avoid jumping to a solution prematurely. A well-crafted problem statement enables the team to align their efforts towards a common goal, defines the scope of the work, and helps in evaluating the success of the project.

Task Analysis
