Technical workshops are suitable and practical when the project doesn’t require much work on UI design i.e. when the project is about an admin facing panel which isn’t the interface facing public users, or when the clients want some upgrades of their existing applications. It lasts about 1 hour to define what are the business objectives and understand the goals and purposes. The interviews with the client consist of core questions such as business outlines and user centered questions.
Then more hours are allocated to defining the technical aspects of the project. The most beneficial part here is that customers usually know what are the needs of the market and know the functional aspects of the project. It helps us to understand the scope better and it reduces the potential risks later on in the project.
