The ideal UX (user experience) process for creating new products generally involves the following steps:
- Discovery: This involves researching and understanding the target user’s needs, behaviours, and pain points. This can be done through various methods such as surveys, interviews, focus groups, and competitor analysis.
- Define: Based on the insights gathered in the discovery phase, the UX team outlines the user experience goals and objectives for the product.
- Design: This involves creating wireframes, prototypes, and mockups to communicate and test design ideas with stakeholders and users.
- Development: The development phase involves turning the approved design into a functional product.
- Testing: This involves testing the product with real users to gather feedback and validate the design. This can be done through usability testing, A/B testing, and other methods.
- Launch: The product is launched and made available to users.
- Feedback and iteration: This involves continuously gathering feedback from users, analyzing data, and making improvements to the product based on that feedback.
Note that this process is iterative and can involve going back and forth between different steps to refine and improve the product. The goal is to create a product that effectively solves the user’s needs and provides a great user experience.
