  • 6. 1. Propositions • Create a sustainable offering that creates competitive differentiation and attracts new customers Objectives • Establish customer personas of target users to develop a richer understanding • Understand value proposition and usage triggers of the proposition associated with these segments • Define feature sets that deliver to the value proposition and encourage active, new and high usage • What are the evolving needs and preferences of mobile users in and outside of the channel? Questions • Preferred frequency, times and mode (device types) that customers want to interact with the service? • What will attract non-active or new users to use the services (e.g. new payment features)? • How do the different segments and brands differ in their mobile needs? • What is the role of the service in the purchasing decision; is it material? • Where does the functionality start and end… • Customer strategy developed and commercial options identified Decisions • Feature list of new mobile shopping platform prioritised • Understanding of barriers to adoption and strategies to resolve • 1:1 non-directed, behavioural interviews Method • Contextual enquiries (in-depth interviews conducted during site visits) • Customer personas created for each segment - proof points analysis 6
  • 7. 2. Requirements • Clearly define organisational objectives, business capabilities and target state feature sets Objectives • Document the high-level business functional and non-functional requirements • Map out and define the core customer journeys in channel and across • Develop a framework for capturing, monitoring and tracking requirements • What are the underlying objectives of the proposition? Questions • What are the high-level functional and non-functional requirements? • What are the core business capabilities? • What gaps exist between the current platform and the target state? • What are the needs of various internal and external stakeholders? • Platform objectives and business capability framework Decisions • High level master requirements document (split into functional and non functional requirements) • Determine which Technology capability is required to achieve each requirement • Stakeholder workshops and technology engagement Method • Prioritised and target state business capability list • Mapping of objectives, business capabilities and requirements 7
  • 8. 3. Design • Create a user experience that creates sustainable differentiation from competitors Objectives • User experience and design that champions brand proof point across all interaction points • Continuous learning and improvement approach to design involving customers directly • Consistent tone and use of language throughout the user journey • What is the expected behaviour for the new features? Questions • What is the expected behaviour for registration and distribution for new and existing customers? • What is the best screen layout for input forms, account and offer displays, marketing etc? • What is the best screen flow and labelling to support the users tasks? • What visual features will improve usage and attract non-active users? • How do experience expectations differ by segment? • Information Architecture and navigation layout Decisions • Design of system to present the information in the required screen layouts • Templates and style guide of new platform • Iterative development of proof of concept Method • High-fidelity prototype based on key business requirements and product backlog • Iterative usability testing of proof of concept for final analysis 8
  • 9. 4. Architecture • Create a solution architecture that delivers competitive advantage and meets long-term organisational needs Objectives • Defined mobile architecture roadmap that delivers speed, efficiency and extensibility to the channel • Set up technology stack that enhances growth and introduction of new features/services • Platform that integrates with other channels and provides single customer view and information • What is the current state, gaps and target state architecture roadmap? Questions • Who are the preferred strategic solution providers? Should it be done ‘in house’? • What platform will the changes will be delivered? Custom or off the shelf solution? • Is new infrastructure required to support the changes and expected growth in the platform? • What middleware should be implemented to drive integration? • Architecture strategy and solution Decisions • Preferred solution providers and partners • Technical constraints and limitations • High-level Architecture roadmap and solution document Method • Technical feasibility prototyping (if required) • System and performance testing analysis 9
  • 10. 5. Technology • Manage the relationship with technology areas covering estimation, vendor engagement and mobilisation Objectives • Drive delivery of aligned technical requirements, use cases, detailed design and architecture documentation • Identify gaps, communicate constraints and lead mapping of technical capabilities against requirements • Engage technology areas for impact assessments including information Mobile and infrastructure • What existing technology and what new technology is required to deliver to the target state? Questions • What technical solutions and infrastructure are required to deliver on the prioritised business requirements? • What requirements are dependent on the delivery of existing in-flight projects? • How much and how long is going to take to deliver the changes? • What is the preferred technical approach to delivering the changes? • What (if any) external support or technology is required to deliver the programme? • What technology solutions are required to be reused, enhanced or implemented to achieve the business goals Decisions • What is the recommended architecture layout to deliver on the needs of the business • What changes result in a positive return on investment (based on estimation results in comparison to benefits) • Request for Information (RFI) and Request for Proposal (RFP) Method • Technical requirements matrix and Solution Architecture document • Estimations and feasibility assessments 10
  • 11. 6. Delivery • Clearly define the delivery strategy, on-going operations and post management processes Objectives • Create strong awareness of the initiative so that all impacted stakeholders are identified • Stakeholders understand and support the purpose, functionality and benefits of the initiative • Ensure all stakeholders are aware and prepared for the introduction of the change • Who are the key stakeholders who are impacted and need to be engaged on the change?

  • 16. Waterfall versus Agile…Agile development represents a cultural shift more than anything else: Waterfall Agile Plan driven Learning driven Infrequent communication Continuous client engagement Deliver once in ‘big bang’ Deliver in short, sharp bursts Requirements defined up front Just-in-time requirements Develop in distinct phases Develop in short sprints View programming as construction View programming as design Higher cost of change Lower cost of change 16
  • 17. Key Takeaways…1. Be clear on what you want from the start2. Be methodical in your selection of propositions3. Engage the right stakeholders for insight, support and awareness4. Have one owner for Requirements, Design, Architecture et al5. Agree your delivery model6. Consider agile 17
