October 2023 - MVPs Demystified: Moving beyond scope discussions (UPDATED)

Thursday, October 5, 2023 -
11:30am to 1:00pm

We apologize for a change in our previously scheduled event. Due to unforeseen circumstances, our originally scheduled speaker is unavailable for the presentation. However, we have a valuable alternative to offer: a recording from our Business Analysis  Development Day we hosted last year featuring a topic on MVP.

This recorded presentation has received positive feedback in the past, and we believe it will still provide valuable insights and a great learning experience for all attendees.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility in this matter. We appreciate your continued support and look foward to sharing this valuable presentation with you.

MVPs Demystified: Moving Beyond Scope Discussions

MVPs are often used as a way to chunk up our full feature scope into manageable parts that we can implement one step at a time. This approach does not really help us much in deciding what should be in scope or out of scope, and what should be high priority or low priority. The true power of MVPs is facilitating fast learning. Will our proposed solution actually bring the business impact and value we think it will? What assumptions need to be true to achieve this impact?

This talk
- will introduce MVPs as minimal validations rather than feature sets;
- will offer some examples of techniques to identify and prioritize assumptions and validate them;
- will demonstrate we should not design the version of a product we can go live with upfront, but rather give ourselves the freedom to stumble upon it during a series of deliberate experiments.
