If you’ve built a product or service with features that your customers rarely use, this workshop will teach you how to map features directly to the problems the user wants solved and define what comprises a minimal feature worth building so that you won’t build the wrong product that your customer doesn’t actually want.
By first defining how a product feature delivers value, you’ll be able to understand which limited features to build first and deliver incremental value to your customers without falling into the trap of designing an all-or-nothing product.
During this hand’s-on FREE workshop, we’ll explore the 5 steps of the User’s Journey and how it helps you to understand user emotions when encountering a problem, learn how to identify solutions to all of the secondary problems encountered by a user when they’re trying to solve their problem, explore the 3 ways that value can be delivered to your user, understand how value delivery maps to features, which are linked to customer emotions, and identify the 3 key metrics necessary to assess value delivery.
Topic: Product Value Defined
Essential question: How do you identify & prioritize all of the sub-problems associated with the main problem that you’re solving for the customer with your product?
Objectives: Discover how to analyze a customer’s problem and related emotion to create the delightful solution for your user.
Audience: early stage startup team members (pre-funding through seed stage), inexperienced entrepreneurs, curious enterprise executives and employees, university students interested in learning lean methods.
