Minimum Viable Product
Design, build, and test a new product – fast.
Speed matters. Accelerate learning and validate your concept within 12 weeks – with minimal risk.
Every product leader’s fear is to miscalculate demand for their new product. Without testing before scaling, startups potentially can face significant losses, both financial and reputational. Through a standardized MVP process, we can help you minimize that risk and test the viability and adoption of your product before you launch.
The MVP Process
Using a high-speed design and development process, we challenge assumptions, diagnose problems, and accelerate feedback through a “build-measure-learn” feedback loop. Let us help you validate your digital product or mobile app concept and resolve uncertainty before you scale. Our MVP program follows a standardized process that helps guide your team through a series of steps, enabling us to better understand your business vision, product strategy, the market dynamics, and your customer’s journey.
The process begins with an onsite or remote discovery workshop, in which we bring together our respective teams to discuss your goals, assumptions, culture, and direction. This baseline experience helps us quickly gain a deep understanding of your objectives and challenges and provides us with use cases that will help inform our direction. From there, we continue to collaborate with your team leaders on a weekly basis as we take you through each phase of the program.
As we move through the program stages, we focus on:
- Product design
- User experience definition
- Solution architecture
- Defining scope & development stack
- Post-release support & product roadmap
What is the engagement like?
We adapt each of our MVP engagements to our client’s specific needs, focusing on speed while adjusting for the complexity, scope, and specific problem you’re trying to solve. But in every engagement, we follow a proven standardized process that enables us to either quickly validate a narrow set of use cases or dig deep with our extensive research capabilities to solve a need or to challenge your assumptions and assertions.
