Only One Deliverable Matters | Big Medium
A huge and varied amount of work goes into making any digital experience. As software makers, we do research, we sketch screens, we map flows, we do animation studies, we stub out code, and we make hundreds or thousands of Git commits before we finally ship.

All of this preparation is incredibly important. But the documents it generates are not.

Somewhere along the way, detailed wireframes, high-fidelity comps, and motion prototypes all got enshrined as critical deliverables. Those design artifacts are unimportant. Only one deliverable matters: the product itself. Everything else gets thrown away when you ship.
