From MVP to "MLP" (Minimum Loveable Product) - Building What Your Customers Care About
As technologists, we love to build things. And we sometimes forget that our customers (or potential customers) don't care about what we're building-- they care about what they're building, doing, or feeling. In this talk, we'll explore methodologies that help us continually focus on our customers' needs, building just enough to learn & iterate towards their desired outcomes. Coming away from this, you'll have a few more tools in the toolbox for your lean startup.
