My definition of a Minimum Viable Product
For me, the definition of a Minimum Viable Product is simple. It answers yes to the three questions below.
- Does the product provides gain > pain to the customer ?
- Can the customer pay ?
- Is the product the sum of the minimal subset of features to accomplish 1 and 2?
The rest of the MVPs, like the (in)famous landing pages, or polls, or interviews, are more MTF (minimum testable feature) or MTP (minimum testable product), or what I love to call, an experiment.
