Validate your hypothesis with MVP experiments

MVP isn't your first release. MVP isn't the list of features in your next release. Minimum Viable Product is smallest amount of work you can do to validate your idea. Wade Shearer will speak to us this evening on how to effectively iterate your way to product/market fit. He'll review real world product success examples of validating before building with MVP experiments.

    Is there an ETA on having the slidedeck online?

    This was one of the most interesting and actionable presentations I've seen. Now I just have to figure out how to implement these things at my current organization. :) Thank you very much!

    I was doing some research on Design Thinking in an effort to get my organization more involved. I found an online course that functions almost like a team building activity that might be of interest to some of the other in-house teams that are facing resistance to "change" like mine :) It looks like they are not taking application until the end of August, though.

    Great presentation, Wade. Thanks for sharing! For anyone more interested in the topic, I highly recommend you read "Lean UX" by Jeff Gothelf. Much of what Wade shared is found there.

    Thanks Wade, it was a great talk.
    I wanted to share an MVP I recently saw that feels like a text book example for 3 of the 4 test methods you shared, all rolled into one.
    Checkout the video MVP here:

    Wizard of Oz is employed in the video.

    Landing page is here:

    The website is more than just a landing page.
    The site lets people place pre-orders for a JIBO or pledge support and money via Indiegogo.

    They have raised almost $2 million since they launched the site. The robot is not scheduled to be released until Christmas 2015 according to the site.

    There are probably 4 or 5 other hypotheses that could be validated at the same time with this MVP.

    Is there someone that might be able to record either the audio or video for this tonight. Not going to be able to make it.
