The Four Parts of a Minimal Viable Product by @TriKro
Tristan Kromer stashed this in Lean Startup and Entrepreneurship
- Value Proposition
It's a good framework, and it's important to keep this in mind:
Since we’re focused on Product/Market Fit prior to scaling, we won’t be testing our marketing Channels and Relationship so they’re a bit greyed out on the storyboard.
This one will take a long time to improve. Difficult to get the usability of a framework right. Lots of usability testing ahead.
Yeah, usable frameworks are hard to create but often just a common vocabulary is useful.
Bingo....just enough to communicate with a mentor in short order.
Although I do think some frameworks have a specific purpose.
Unfortunately, most tools are misused and everyone is banging away at nails with a screwdriver.
I've never heard that nails-screwdriver metaphor before but it is apropos.
I was thinking of the saying "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail".
Depending on the audience I sometimes say, "Tools can be used for good or evil. You can assemble furniture with a screwdriver, or you can stab yourself repeatedly in the eye with it. Your choice."
I don't think it's evil to stab yourself repeatedly in the eye. Just masochistic.
Evil is stabbing someone else repeatedly in the eye.
Although I do like the thought of Ikea's new slogan being "purveyors of good and evil".
