Value vs Complexity

Remember the 80-20 rule in designing first-generation products.

80% of the ______ comes from 20% of the ______.

Fill in the blanks: 1. 80% of the problems come from 20% of the features. 2. 80% of the revenue comes from 20% of the products. 3. ...etc

Prioritize your critical features, and focus all your energy on those. Leave the nice-to-have features for a second-generation product.

The product will sell when the marketing efforts can focus on the core value.

This article from Avi Siegel lays out how to choose a Prioritization Framework in development. It lays out helpful tips on how to focus your development team on the features that matter.

Use the Value vs Complexity matrix to help decide which features to include.

Good luck!

Make it a great week.
