We need to ask the big hard questions at the beginning of the process so we can make good design decisions later. We talk to Dan Brown about the “discovery phase” or, as Dan suggests, the “discovery mindset”.

What should the output of a discovery phase be? When have we thought and discovered enough? What do we deliver?
