Designing a Minimum Viable Product Presentation

Entrepreneurs and innovators strive to develop services and solutions that address consumer needs. Comprehensive market research and evaluation are integral components of the product generation process. In a rapidly evolving market defined by continuous changes in consumer preferences, your product needs to be tested in real world conditions with actual consumers.

This is where the concept of a Minimum Viable Product comes in.

What is a Minimum Viable Product (MVP)?

Every product begins with an idea that is directed towards solving a problem. Minimum Viable Product is the ‘bare minimum’ version of your final product. The idea is to create the smallest and quickest version of the product so you can begin testing it repeatedly.

MVP can be described as “smallest version of a new product that can be utilized to collect the maximum validated learning about customers response with the least effort in shortest time”.

Why Use a Minimum Viable Product?
Make-or-Break situation

For some entrepreneurs, the launch of a product is a make-or-break situation. There is more at stake when dealing with product development and launch.

Real Market Product Testing

Consumer behavior may differ from factory-controlled tests. Even after rigorous internal testing, any product still requires real market tests, allowing to identify areas for improvement.

Core Value– Key Features

Concise and direct nature of MVP allows developers to improve core features that solves customer problems. It helps to avoid more features, that disrupt the user experience.

Cost-Effective and Efficient

It allows developers to release a low-budget version that meets core features, without any frills. Based on the customer response, the plan can be expanded or revised or worst-case dropped.

Defining MVP – Key pointers

It is difficult to ascertain the bare minimum value to the user that will persuade them to use your product, to arrive at MVP.

Here are some pointers that can help you:

Buyer Persona

Remember that your product should be targeted towards pre-existing buyer personas. The best way to start is to focus on one, preferably the most dominant persona.

Key differentiator

Avoid an MVP clustered with unnecessary features. Include those that are truly central to the product, covering unique aspects of your product that sets you apart from others.

Demand for potential features

This helps to assess the features that truly resound with your target audience. You can add incomplete, or even dummy features that can be tested in the future.

Overall idea and development

This prevents investing time or effort in developing unwanted features. This helps to get overall idea of the features that should be further polished, and those that need to be scrapped.

Product assessment

The core reason behind creating an MVP is to assess your product in real market conditions, without investing significant money in the development process.

Market feedback

The prompt market feedback allows you to modify your approach, thus saving time and effort. The result is a product that has been thoroughly tested and judged against the market forces.
