Minimum viable product development

“How can I quickly find out if my idea is worth pursing?”

This is one of the first questions which should be asked during product development. Instead of spending time, money and energy creating a finished product that may not be suitable for the market, ask yourself what you can do with the least amount of resource to get the biggest impact.

By creating an MVP, you distill your initial idea into the minimum set of features that will allow you to assess its viability in the marketplace. Your aim is to build the smallest MVP possible to allow you to gather the key information you need about how best to proceed.

Benefits to developing an MVP

  • Quick feedback regarding the development of your concept

  • Information about your customer’s expectations with interactive prototypes

  • Minimal resource required while still validating your idea for end users

The MVP development process

Creating a minimum viable product (MVP) allows you to test a hypothesis and validate, through evidence, whether the direction you are going in should be pursued, refined, or abandoned.

In order to create an MVP, we recommend that you follow a five-step process through which key elements of your concept will be highlighted. This allows a SWOT analysis to be performed early in the process before any larger investments are made.

  • DiscoveryPinpoint and clearly define the capability or need that you are trying to solve. This will make testing your concept more effective.
  • DesignDevelop wireframes, technical designs, creative designs and requirements documentation to determine which functionality will deliver what you need.
  • DevelopBegin to define your solution around the minimum set of required features. Our approach of agile development saves time and allows quick delivery.
  • Measure: As soon as your MVP has been launched, you are able to observe how your end users interact with your product, their behaviours and their feedback.
  • Identify changesThe development team will make any improvements to your product based of customer feedback and your vision of the end product.
  • The LoopThe loop between all phases continues until you either have a product that is approved for further development, or you take the decision to drop the MVP concept.
