Optimize product adoption

"To spread excellence,
you first need something excellent to spread.”

Product-Solution Fit, Adopted by End Users

Build the right thing from the start.

Do you know real-world problems you could address? How can you define your success and quit criteria? Do you have ideas that enable a pivot when you still have runway?

Flex with users' needs and desires + your business constraints and aspirations.

Build a lower risk, value-based business for all your stakeholders.


Bridge product-solution to product-market fit.

Product opportunity work reduces your risk.

 

Boost the chances that your business, YOUR EXPERIMENT, survives by intention rather than luck among known and possible threats.

 

Your experiment stays agile, flexes in its wider, constantly morphing ecosphere. Your experiment is sustainable.

Early Product Critique

Price includes evaluation and a directional meeting

What do you know about potential users? Could you get more out of that data?

What do you need to know now? How could your product vision be sharper?

Write a Product Requirement Document (PRD), a living roadmap tied to OKRs.

NOT A UNICORN. A DRAGON.

Chinese dragon art

"The desirability of achieving unicorn status has resulted in some very negative behaviors, especially the ‘growth at all costs' mentality.

 

Whereas a unicorn’s primary defense is often spending VC money to win market share through price wars and outgunning competitors, dragons build genuine defensive moats and resilience. 

Keep a tight grip on spending, ensure underlying business rigor, have a long-term sustainable vision, and pursue profitability as opposed to scale for its own sake."
