Start with the all powerful pencil & paper, first!

The fastest way to get a project moving in the right direction is to draw it out. A drawing can explain the projects needs when words can lead to a misunderstanding. Mockups should start out simple and graduate into paper prototypes (with all the buttons, modals and features wanted). Elevating the original drawing's idea into a path of discovery. Highlighting missing details of the user's journey or validating how new functionality will look. Since paper prototypes can be created with a pen and paper, everyone can contribute. They can even be used with user testing; pointing out the pros and cons of the journey before expensive development occurs. Saving money, time and numerous headaches.
