MVP Workshop

A Minimum Viable Product is the best way to bring something new to the market. By focusing on the essential factors, development can be streamlined for a rapid response and a flexible, forward-facing solution.

Our workshops are the first step in this process. By listening to your needs and working with you, we carve the best path forward - then we develop, test and release it.

Why Start With An MVP Workshop?

Great products don’t ‘just’ happen. From choosing technology to ensuring an ideal product/market fit, a workshop asks all the important questions before the real work begins.

We’ve worked on countless products, so we’re very good at getting to the core essence of any solution - that unique value that’s the most vital. That’s the MVP.

The Best Products Start With An MVP

MVP can be a great beginning to the next hit product. Take a look at companies who started from MVP and now are leaders of the market.

Facebook

Facebook focused on providing the core experience first. Mobile, advertising and apps all came after the core model.

Spotify

Streaming music is the core essence of Spotify. This was the only priority for the MVP - playlists, promotions and enhanced UX all came later.

Uber

Originally, Uber only worked on iPhones - and only in San Francisco. The MVP’s success enabled the rapid expansion seen today.

Revolut

Today it’s a bank of its own, but Revolut was originally a simple premise: making digital payments and accounts simpler - which worked.

Airbnb

A perfect lesson in scale: Airbnb started out by only advertising the owners’ property, expanding out once the model was quickly proven.

Buffer

Before it managed numerous social media networks, Buffer only worked on Twitter - yet this success let it expand with an audience behind it.

Why Do You Need An MVP?

Companies don’t have infinite resources - a faster release to market is essential for the best ROI. Likewise, you also want to stay agile and adaptable, which is all enabled via an MVP.

The more you plan before release, the more likely you are to fail. Unless you have amazing research and insights, there’s no knowing how users will react to a new, unfamiliar product with 20+ features. It may turn out they only needed a handful - in which case, you’ve wasted too many resources. An MVP diverts away from this old fashioned path. By focusing on the most core elements, we can release the product as efficiently as possible. This way, we are able to adapt and expand in line with audience reactions. With an MVP, you give users what they want, but never run the risks of blind assumption.

Benefits Of An MVP

Are you considering building an MVP? This is what you can get!

Faster release

An MVP focuses on the core features, which cuts down on development time - as well as costs.

Maximum flexibility

By using resources lightly and not over-developing the initial release, the MVP is able to better adapt and change once live.

Product/ Market fit

With our workshops, your MVP is guided towards making a unique impression in your target market.

Immediate feedback

With a faster, streamlined release, you can immediately see how the core business model works.

Continued development

Releasing an MVP is just the beginning. When support comes in, you can use public feedback to develop into a more competitive solution.

Quicker sucess

All of these benefits have one thing in common… by cutting down costs, working on core features and listening to feedback, you achieve success much faster!

How Our MVP Workshop Works

While every workshop is tailored to your particular needs, there always some important steps that need to be undertaken.

1.

Before it begins

Before any workshop begins, our own team takes the time to research existing products, as well as gather visual inspiration and consider any technologies that spring to mind. We do this so that we come to the workshop already armed with domain-specific knowledge to complement our technical expertise.

2.

When the workshop starts

During the workshop itself, we choose the best techniques, such as preparing a business model canvas, lean canvas, personas or user stories, to define the MVP’s purpose. We also focus on functionalities, wireframing and defining priorities to further scope out the final product. This can also include presentations and research from both designers and developers.

3.

Workshop Objective

The end result is a final functionality list to scope out and define the MVP itself - everything you need to kickstart development on the actual product! This includes details regarding the Scope, Time, Cost, Risk, and Quality.

4.

Tools

We also use this time to define the tools we use. This is because, after we’ve created canvases, personas and user flows, as well as an understanding of the priorities, we can recommend the best solutions for your MVP and business objectives. It’s a complete view of what needs to be done, as well as both how and why.

Why Choose Us?

When building an MVP, you need more than just development knowledge: you need experts that understand how to tackle markets. You need people that know what works - and are willing to do what it takes to get the final product there.

We’ve helped numerous clients on the way to success and a workshop has been essential. It ensures we fully understand your needs, as well as ensure the target user’s needs are met as well. Through technology, design, UX/UI and user choices, we partner with clients to fully prepare the MVP for success.
