 “Hoping it works” is not a strategy

I was on a call with someone who was explaining how when he got software developed it felt like he was lighting $10,000 on fire, and “hoping it works”.

He was overwhelmed and fearful, because he didn’t know what could go wrong. 

Not having a plan is a real problem.

You don’t want to start building a house before you have clear plans, right?

The same goes for software. It’s smart to have a plan so everything is mapped out.

Then you get what you want and make sure you don’t overpay.

Before and After

Before Software Accelerator Playbook: You’re a non-technical business owner, and software development is confusing and frustrating. You want to build software but don’t know the questions to ask, don’t know how to narrow the software focus, and don’t know the terms. You want to make sure your money is well spent and doesn’t go to waste. You want to limit failure, and not be as overwhelmed through the process.

After Software Accelerator Playbook: You have a completed scope, ready to move forward approaching software developers with your idea. Your map is crystal-clear, and your confidence is high. Your time and money will be saved because you went through this process, and you can relax, knowing you have been thorough. It no longer feels like you will be setting your money on fire and just “hoping it works”. Instead, you’ve created a clear target for your developers to aim for and fully laid out your vision.
