Pega follows a six-step Agile UX design process guided by the following three principles:
Every Pega product and feature must start with design from the Product Design team.
Designs must be validated before investment in development.
Keep it agile — collaborate, adapt, and iterate.

The six-step process
Define business goals
Explore, determine and document the business goals of the product or feature, focusing on highest value outcomes for both end-users, and the business, while keeping an open mind about how to achieve the goal.
We believe UX design is the critical coordination between business value and what end-users are trying to acheive.
Discover the requirements necessary to achieve the established goals, complete a competitive analysis, review feasibility, and define scope of the design work.
Explore concept design
Consider relevant existing paradigms as well as alternative design approaches. Seek feedback from UX design colleagues and other key stakeholders. Build a vision of the product or feature including sketches, wireframes and prototypes to validate in usability testing.
Document design plan
Create the necessary documentation and assets including validated and refined screens, POCs, videos of interaction design and any other relevant design files.
Implement and monitor the design plan, modifying as needed to accommodate feasibility issues that arise during the course of development.
Release product or feature
Monitor post-release success, focusing on where to improve usability and value to the market for the next release. Learn about the OOOO Metric
