Negotiating an MVP set of requirements for an initial product launch
For their initial product launch, many product owners and managers struggle to prioritize a strategic set of features that will support the achievement of their most critical business goals. They may feel that every feature is a high priority for launch or may struggle with stakeholders who cannot work together to prioritize. They can take a highly emotional approach to what is considered “MVP,” and this emotional approach can derail or doom the project.
As experts and consultants, it is our job to help them be successful. We can achieve this by connecting to them and their vision first, in order to clearly understand their needs and challenges. Then, we can employ specific strategies to help them better understand the opportunities Drupal presents in helping them achieve their goals without setting themselves up for failure or struggle down the road.
