What is an MVP?

A minimum viable product (MVP) is a concept from Lean Startup that stresses the importance of learning in new product development. The author, Eric Reis, defined an MVP as “that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort.”

What is MVP Software Development?

MVP software development is an artform that combines rapidly constructing a product, while ensuring that product can iterate quickly and not become a “throw away” at the end. The process combines product management thinking, design thinking and engineering craftsmanship to ensure the people behind the product are successful at the end, once their vision has been validated.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an MVP?

A minimum viable product (MVP) is a concept from Lean Startup that stresses the importance of learning in new product development. The author, Eric Reis, defined an MVP as “that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort.”

What is the purpose of MVP development?

The reason to develop an MVP is to optimize the time and initial investment required to begin testing hypotheses about your target market, requirements and tastes of your customers and other important drivers of success with your product.

An MVP helps you receive early data that confirms users’ interest in the product you are bringing to market. Benefits of this approach include:

  • Determining whether the product and its approach is appealing to users.
  • Saving time and money by making sure you are investing in a project that makes sense and features that make sense.
  • Discovering customers wants and needs.
  • Acquiring a user base and finding early champions of your product.
  • Attract early investors.

What is the difference between an MVP and a prototype?

An MVP is further along in the product development process than a prototype. For instance, a common approach to prototyping is to design a user interface using Sketch and wire it together so that it emulates a working system using InVision. However, this is not a truly functional software application. .

An MVP, on the other hand, is typically a functional application that has been reduced to its most basic features.

What is an MVP approach?

An MVP approach is founded on the premise that you can provide sufficient customer value by delivering minimal features that early adopters will use. You can then collect feedback that will enable you to build a better product that will resonate with future users.

You must understand what problems your market needs to solve. However, according to the MVP approach, you do not need to address every problem at once. Solve the most important and most basic problems, and then gather feedback. The idea is to maximize your learning and minimize your development costs.

Are MVPs only for startups?

When you’re developing new features, whether at a large or small company, you should typically start with an MVP. Determine what is “minimum viable” and release a basic version of a new feature to selected groups of users to test. Once you have feedback, improve the feature before releasing the official version.

This approach and what is determined to be “minimum viable” will vary based upon the nature of the business.
