06 May The Value of Building an MVP
The Value of Testing
Keep it Simple
An MVP is meant to be your proof of concept, not your grand masterpiece. That’s why over complicating things now could be the death of your product before it comes to fruition. You don’t need to use the cool hip new tech when the old methods still work fine. Stick to what you and your team know well, provided it has the means to get the job done. There is no ‘right’ way to build a product, and if you and your team are working with the familiar tech, you will work much faster and encounter less unexpected issues. Keeping it simple and shipping early really showcases the value of building an MVP.
The Importance of Customer Validation
One of the main reasons why it’s worth creating an MVP is that it means a faster route to market. The process is not without its challenges, however, but when you look at all the things you achieve quicker having created an MVP, it’s hard to deny the benefits. It gives you invaluable feedback from customers. It means you can proceed with changes in a clearer direction. Most importantly, instead of trying to suss your place in the market, before any actual testing, it’s a no brainer that this is the way forward and the best option for many.
