Put the “Viable” back into MVP – Defining the right product that delivers real Value for your customers and context

@Mercer Island Community Center


Many companies take a feature-centric approach to product planning. In the new agile frenzy to create Minimum Viable Products as quickly as possible, how do you know what really makes a product Valuable for your specific customer? Do you invest resources to build a thin slice of functionality and see how your customers react? Do you invest in detailed research to understand your customers’ needs? Do you design a prototype, test, and iterate? Carol Taylor offers a real world look at ways to find and apply the right level of insights at the right stages of product planning and development to help ensure you build the right product for your customers and their context.
