Nesta Prototyping Framework
The prototyping process outlined in this document was developed through the Prototype Barnet project which used this process to build and test a proposed new service called Community Coaches.
Depending on what you are prototyping you may find different stages of this process are more relevant than others, but the diagram provides a framework from which you can structure your own approach.
During the Prototype Barnet project, many of the stakeholders felt the language around prototyping was inaccessible. So we asked some people from the council to share a story of where they had prototyped something in their own life.
