11 Reasons to Include Prototyping in Your Web Development Process

In The promised land of prototyping: Realizing the full potential of prototyping Henrik Olsen provides 11 very good reasons as to why you should include prototyping as an intregal part of your web development methodology.

I particularly liked his comment about the benfit of providing the client something to look at:

Can make the intangible tangible

Clients have a very hard time understanding how a product is going to work from technical specifications, and developers often find it difficult to translate them into practice, because they usually describe what a product can do but not how the users are going to access its features.

Compared to technical specifications, a prototype is easy to grasp for everyone, since it's a representation of the final product. It shows what the product can do and simulates how it's going to work.

Amen to that.

Personally, I'm a big fan of paper prototyping as I find it produces a large return for a relatively small amount of effort.
