(A) “Although it’s time consuming, investing the time to get the core, foundational elements correct will ensure we don’t waste time, energy, and money building items that no one cares about and that don’t drive business impact. Additionally, we will end up saving even more time in the long run during the wireframing and copywriting steps by completing the worksheet upfront.”
