Pattern: Think Backwards

Category: Delivery
Start by describing what you want to achieve for your users, and then work out the steps to get there.

Start with your user. Who are they and what problems do they have? What would a good solution mean for them? What might that solution look like?

Don’t get distracted by what you’re able to build, focus on what you should build. By focusing on what your user needs – and not what your team wants to build – you’re more likely to solve a real world problem and not be boxed in by old, outdated ideas and tools.
