Build your Minimum Viable Product

I gave a talk about building and iterating an MVP at the brilliant Workplace Hackshop organised by HackHumanity.

It’s a short presentation so take a look, but these are the just the main points for the busiest executives:

  • Form key hypotheses – optimise for learning, not functionality
  • Express your main value proposition
  • Get it out – if you’re not ashamed of it, you wasted time
  • Measure every user interaction
  • Know where your audience hangs out
  • Look for customers ready to pay
  • Fake it, kludge it, hack it together
