A prototype shows users what your product will be like

Sometimes the best way to get your stakeholders to give you an opinion on what your product should be is to show it to them in a prototype. Prototypes are models of the product that you’re going to build that let your stakeholders get a better idea of what your team is thinking. Sometimes users who are experimenting with a prototype will come up with a brand new requirement that they never thought of before. If you can get them to find it in the prototype, it’s a lot easier to deal with than if you wait until the end of the project to show to them. When you’re making a really complicated product, it can make sense to prototype it as part of the requirements collection process so that you can find changes that your users will ask for early on.
