If you have been around software development for a while, you know that feature creep can kill any project dead in its tracks. Defining a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) can keep feature creep in check enough to launch a project that can then be iterated upon in future releases. Fewer, or simplified features won’t necessarily lead to a successful MVP. Cutting features without considering their strategic significance can lead to project failure.
We will discuss how to use a strategic lense to frame an MVP discussion that successfully identifies what should be included in an MVP and what should be moved to future releases.
