The Product Requirements Document (PRD) serves as the blueprint for product development at Imaginovation. As a comprehensive document outlining all aspects of the product under development, a meticulously crafted PRD is critical for project success.
This resource will explore Imaginovation's process for completing the PRD, from gathering requirements to best practices for ensuring accuracy.
The PRD captures the what, why, and how of the product. It defines the product purpose, features, functionality, design, timeline, and more. Without a detailed PRD aligned on by all stakeholders, misalignment during development is almost certain.
At Imaginovation, the PRD contains several key sections:
Thorough completion of each PRD section prevents gaps in requirements that can impede development velocity and quality.
At Imaginovation, PRD creation is a collaborative process between our Product Manager and Business Analyst and client stakeholders.
The high-level phases include:
Rigorous reviews and approval gates ensure no crucial details are missed in capturing requirements upfront.
Even with robust planning, requirements can change post-approval as projects progress and realities emerge. Rather than resisting this change, Imaginovation maintains PRD flexibility.
As changes arise, Imaginovation and clients collaborate to update the PRD through defined change control procedures. With the PRD serving as the single source of truth, changes are localized and easily managed.
Before major phase transitions, we conduct exhaustive PRD reviews to realign stakeholders and prevent deviation. This governance and discipline is key for accuracy.
Imaginovation has gleaned crucial best practices from years of successful PRD completion:
Following these best practices while avoiding missteps enables Imaginovation to produce stellar PRDs consistently, driving development success.
The Product Requirements Document is the cornerstone of robust planning and development at Imaginovation. With intensive discovery, structured documentation, and rigorous cross-functional reviews, we ensure PRDs capture product details with comprehensiveness and accuracy.
