Scope creeping? Vision dissipating? Stakeholders disengaging? Team splintering? Specification ballooning? User experience rehashing? Application prototyping can help with these ailments and more by creating a common vision for team members, stakeholders and customers. Prototypes can be high fidelity or low fidelity, interactive or static, speculative or definitive.
