Demonstrate that you can launch a new product in weeks, not months.
A "Minimum Viable Product" is not a prototype. Werner Vogels, CTO of Amazon.com, defines it as a rock-solid first version with minimum feature sets.
The key to delivering in 10 weeks is to identify the limited set of features that will allow you to go to market and start learning from your users.
The sooner your product is exposed to market and in the hands of your customers, the sooner you understand what they really need.
The Theodo process allows you to user-test your product everyday from week 3, making sure your MVP solves the pain of your early adopters.
Once the MVP is released successfully, a lot of ideas and features will be requested with the risk of bloating the newborn product. We provide the process and tools to keep the whole organisation focused on finding product/market fit.
Product strategy is about: alignment with business strategy, clearly identified personas and user journeys, understanding of current strengths/weaknesses and focus on 1 to 3 key product characteristics to work on.
Our Starter workshops help us identify the product strategy together and ensure progress towards product/market fit is tracked weekly with analytics and user tests.
Finding product/market fit requires teamwork from all parts of your business: product, engineering, marketing, operations, etc.
Align them all with a clear visual space, the "product obeya", and empower your management to take ownership of the difficult challenges and share their learnings.
Using the lean Plan Do Check Act framework, we consider every feature deployed in production as an experiment to test a hypothesis.
Even the best-in-class have less than 50% success on their new features. By evaluating features, you learn 100% of the time and work faster towards product/market fit.
Once you find product-market fit, it is time to scale the product and ramp up the delivery capability around it.
To grow your own capability and succeed in the current digital talent war, we share with you our hiring, training and coaching process.
This allows you to become progressively autonomous and acquire a unique in-house talent pool.
We tailor together the Theodo process to fit your organisation and your products and then make sure it is adopted by your teams through embedding our engineers and agile coaches into your teams.
We also use one to one coaching and pair programming to upskill developers on technical skills and leadership.
To address the challenges of scale and maintain a culture of no bugs, high productivity, and effective teamwork, we engage every team on continuous improvement of their local challenges using kaizen.
We have experience and tools to facilitate kaizens on the most common delivery challenges: bugs, lead time, productivity, etc. and help both engineering and product teams take leadership as the tech and organisation scales.
