Embracing the Power of the MVP

07-01-24 Sparkbox

Don’t focus on the word “minimum.” Focus on the word “viable,” or if you really want to be smart about it: “valuable.” Your MVP gives you the power to ensure that you’re defining the correct product, meeting the needs of your key audiences, and creating meaningful change for your organization.

The context of the MVP can have a huge impact on how you move forward with a new or evolving product. Different context means different risks, different priorities, different goals. Let’s talk about how to navigate these products and learn from the challenges they reveal and the opportunities they create.

Importance of Roadmapping with Leah

Every project comes with some natural constraints, from scope to timeframe, and (of course) budget. The idea behind a great MVP is to determine what you can do, and what you can do well. There will be time for enhancement later. Come chat with Experience Design Director Leah Henderson about how you can plan for now and evaluate opportunities in the future.

Creating a Technical Foundation with Catherine

When you plan an MVP, you know you need it to be stable and secure in the near term. An MVP may be limited in features, but those features should be built with quality and intention. From a technical standpoint, you also need to prepare for the business to change. What you build today should be flexible enough to enable future growth. One of our technical directors, Catherine Meade, is here to explain how.
