One of the great things about rapid software prototyping is that it can be relatively quick to do. This speed means that it’s not only possible, but often beneficial, to create alternative prototypes to help shape a design.
Alternative prototyping can help users and business stakeholders visualise different ways to approach some task or activity, promote discussion and debate. It gives them a real sense of being part of the design process and having a say in the outcomes. In short, it gets them onboard and involved.
So, if there is a difficulty in making a decision on the way forward, why not prototype a number of options and let the users and business stakeholders decide?
