Sometimes asking a question is not to get an answer. There are many reasons to ask questions during the analysis and design process.

Why all the questions

So why do I ask so many questions?
  • To reframe and start from the beginning
  • To challenge assumptions
  • To challenge constraints
  • To get someone to state the answer out loud so everyone can hear
  • To move the conversation or meeting along
  • To flesh out what is known and unknown
  • And of course, to get an answer

Ultimately, what I am looking for is the best user experience for the user and a more successful product. These questions lend to a better understanding of the situation which inevitably leads to a better solution.
