Gone are the days when extensive business plans rule the world of product development. The ability to rapidly prototype your ideas and test their core assumptions with your users is critical to the speed, efficiency and ultimate success of your products and services.
This workshop will share with you the knowledge, techniques and tools to develop you minimal loveable product (MLP) using the most efficient means possible. We'll explore lo-fi and digital based approaches to prototyping that will arm you with the knowledge and tools to develop your first MLP.
Next up: 11th September @ Riff powered by Spacecubed
The Lean startup movement popularised the idea of the 'Minimal Viable Product,' however this term has become misused and misunderstood. Better still, a minimal lovable product balances the two sides of business validation and customer delight through rapidl prototyping.
The need to prototype extends far beyond product developers - this is a critical skill for anyone developing solutions to business problems. If you have ideas that you would like to test before making a significant investment, then this is the workshop for you.
Please bring along an idea that you would like to explore throughout the session. This may be a digital product idea, a physical product or even a service. A Wifi-enabled laptop is also required to explore the digital prototyping tools.
Learning how to break down your project into its core assumptions and identify the most important elements to test first.
The techniques used to establish your prototype, including lo-fi models such as paper prototypes and digital models that utilise leading online tools.
Exploring the different approaches that can be used to develop your MLP, including concierge models, Wizard of Oz, Flintstones and 'smoke and mirrors'.
