As a startup founder, you’re creating something from an idea. To validate it, you’ll build a minimum viable product (MVP) and take it to market. Critical questions about the right path and the calculated risks often slow the journey to delivering a tangible product to your customers quickly—and there’s little time to navigate any of these roadblocks. The need to push an MVP to market quickly looms large over the early stages of the startup lifecycle and may be the most pivotal factor in your organization’s success.
The bottom line: Now that you’re ready to build—and no matter how inspiring your idea—you likely face limited budgets, resources, and time. Every decision you make during the development process can significantly impact long-term productivity and product functionality. Likewise, any compromise in the quality of the user experience puts success at risk. The good news is that best practices exist as guiding principles to help you move forward with confidence.
