PHASE 2: PRODUCT VISION

Create clarity of purpose and focus for your products.

 

Products are often developed without an objective for what it is trying to achieve, or if there is one, it is in the head of a single person who had the idea. Without a shared common goal for a product, a domino effect will take place – the strategy to attain goals is unclear or worse it is assumed, the scope and requirements creep, the fit into the product portfolio becomes confusing, and so on. Developing a product vision that is clearly documented and shared with stakeholders and the team will provide that North Star that everyone can remain focused on.
