  13. 13. “A Startup is a human institution designed to deliver a product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty” Eric Ries
  14. 14. ““A startup is not about executing a series of knowns. Most startups are facing a series of unknowns—unknown customer segments, unknown customer needs, unknown product feature set, etc.”.”
  15. 15. Minimum viable product (MVP) is the product with the highest return on investment versus risk. The term was coined and defined by Frank Robinson, and popularized by Steve Blank, and Eric Ries
  16. 16. “Minimize output, maximize outcome “- Jeff Patton, User Story Mapping

  30. 30. What we Learnt and Road Ahead • Being systematic in wireframing approach • Difficulty in identifying One metric that matters • Prototyping should not be done for a set of users. Road Ahead • Better our practices, adopt continuous delivery: Build Measure Learn Continuous Delivery Split Tests Falifiable Hypothesis Automated Deployment Customer Liason Customer Development Wireframing Net Promoter Score Five Whys Root Cause Analysis
  31. 31. Conclusion • Whether we are entrepreneur or intrapreneur, we need to focus on the customer development constantly. • Don’t jump into features or solution without validating the problem. • Remember to take the hypothesis driven approach- Always.
