Have you been in an accident recently? Have you got one coming up, and you’re sticking your toes in the deep end and heading out into the wilderness to take your first expedition?

Whatever the case limitation, you need to know what the discovery process looks like. You can learn this by understanding the practicalities of how a survey is completed and what information it teaches you.

Keep reading below to learn more.

Planning and Preparation

The discovery process actually looks like a structured and well-planned activity in practice. During the PreDiscovery Phase of Planning and Preparation, the parties involved need to research the facts of the case, determine the available witnesses and documents, define the scope of the legal discovery process, and discuss the best ways of collecting the evidence.

This includes identifying and locking in the interviewees, assembling the documents, developing questionnaire formats and databases, and solidifying the methods for obtaining the necessary evidence. Additionally, during this phase, the parties must plan for the alerting/notifying of all necessary parties to the process and advise them on the rules and regulations for the process. 

Conducting Research, Gathering Data, and Analysis

The discovery process in practice starts by obtaining an understanding of the project, its goals and objectives, as well as its resources. The next step is to collect relevant data and assess the current state of the project. Data can be collected from internal sources, such as customer survey findings, and from external sources, such as market research.

After the data is collected, it must be analyzed to draw out meaningful conclusions. This could include looking for patterns and trends in customer decisions and behaviors. The analysis of data can also include understanding competitive positioning and customer needs.  Contact Underwood Law today to schedule a consultation.

Identifying Insights and Opportunities and Implementation

This could include developing a process or tool, improving or creating a product or service, or creating a new marketing strategy. Understanding the customer, their needs, and their usage of the existing product or service can help identify opportunities and insights.

Once identified, a team will create strategies that might include personalization, optimization, a new feature set, a workflow, or other changes. With the discoverable insights, steps can then be taken to move forward with creating a plan, identifying potential components, and then executing against these goals. The ultimate goal of this process is to better serve the customer, lower acquisition costs, and improve the overall user experience to increase satisfaction.
