Does your product meet user needs?

Before you take your product to market, prove there is a genuine need for it first.

Building a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)

When you build a product you make many assumptions. For example, you assume what your customers' needs are, the type of pricing structure you should adopt and which laws you should adhere to. The problem is, how do you know which of your assumptions is right?

Test your assumptions with an MVP

Develop an early MVP version of your product with core features and put it in front of real users as soon as possible. Use this customer feedback to identify any uneccessary features that you can remove, or any missing features that you need to develop.

iterative process

Be prepared to develop several versions of your product based on user feedback. Change features in increments so that you can easily identify weaknesses and improve the product accordingly.
