Every product company wants to deliver great products with high quality to its customers. The delivery or development speed at the same time must get faster without losing the quality of the product. Therefore, companies and especially product managers always try to optimize the software development process to get faster without losing the quality of the product and to be ahead of their competitors.
The basis for every company and software development team should be a product strategy. With the help of the strategy a team can derive its own necessary steps, that will help to speed up the development of the product. As a first step, a company or team must identify the market and the target audience the product will be developed for. If this knowledge is available it’s much easier to focus on the needs of the customers and to get into the details.
Based on the target audience a development team and especially the product manager in collaboration with UX/ UI colleagues can start with early prototyping.
The early prototypes can be used to talk to the target customers to get first insights about the potential of the new product. This early user involvement will help the team again to focus on the features that really matter to the customers.
