The problem

Having a successful digital product today is extremely powerful and profitable. The tech industry stays strong with little concern about the economy or inflation. Smart entrepreneurs are converting their ideas into a digital product with the hope to scale their business fast.

But a great product does not just happen. Sadly,  90% of the products built today end up with a failure. As much as the technology does allow fast scaling, at the same time it makes competition much higher. As a result, a digital product can be a huge benefit only when it is successful, stands out from the competition and resonates well with the market.

Why is building a successful digital product so difficult? And what do most successful companies do to build a product that customers love?

If these are the questions you are curious to answer, you are in the right place.

The solution

This course is designed with one objective in mind: To equip you with the right knowledge and mindset you need to build a great successful product.

In this course we are going to cover the whole process to build a Minimum Viable Product in a lean and effective way. This is not a course that teaches you how to build an MVP concept in one day. Instead we cover the complete process from idea to achieving a product market fit.

We’ll cover the different phases of the product development process 1) Discovery, which covers the Why – “why are you building the product”; 2) Design, which covers the What – “what are you going to build” and 3) Delivery – which is all about the How – “how do you build the product”.

You’ll learn what are the steps in this process, you’ll learn what are the critical points in this journey that you need to pay special attention to, and you’ll learn how to make the right decisions during this process. You’ll learn

  • How to identify your market niche and their needs

  • How to develop a competitive product strategy

  • How to make key product decisions

  • How to develop an outcome-driven roadmap

  • What are the best practices to design the product

  • What are the best practices to develop the product

  • How to measure and improve the product

Who this course is for

The course is designed with an entrepreneur in mind, particularly startups who are building their first tech product.

The course, however, is beneficial for anyone who is involved in the product development process in any way, for example product managers who want to build better products or software engineers who want to understand how the most successful product companies build products that customers love.

No specific technology background is required to follow this course. It is however preferred to have some very basic understanding of business and technology.

What to expect at the end of this course

This course is not going to make you the best UX designer, or a great software engineer. Instead at the end of this course you will have a high confidence to manage the whole process from idea to product market fit.

Building a successful product is not easy. There is no simple step-by-step recipe that will guarantee success. Running a business is complex as there are so many uncertainties. However, with the right mindset and equipped with a strong knowledge, you will drastically increase your chance of success. And this is what you’ll get out of this course.
