Join Cole Mercer for an in-depth discussion in this video Piecemeal MVPs, part of Designing and Running Experiments for Product Managers.
- Hey guys, welcome back to The Core.…Let's talk about one of the last types…of MVPs that we covered, the piecemeal MVP.…Now, piecemeal, if you remember,…is when you piece together other softwares…to create the functionality that you need.…To better help you visualize what this concept is,…because it's kind of confusing, let's go over an example.…Let's say you had an online course,…let's say you wanted to add a certificate of completion…so that anyone who finishes a course…would get emailed a PDF that says,…"Yay, you've finished the course."…(children joyously yelling)…Well, instead of building an auto-PDF generator,…and setting it up to know when the user finished the course,…maybe you just add a link to the end…of the course that takes them to a form.…
They can then input their name into that…form with their email, and then they can get…a PDF certificate sent to them that way.…How you can make this work is by,…let's say using Typeform, which is a form software,…to create an online form with a public access link.…
Instructors Cole Mercer and Evan Kimbrell show how nail down your business hypothesis and define the minimum criteria for success. They introduce the tools and techniques you need to build email-based MVPs, shadow buttons, "coming soon" messaging, piecemeal MVPs that use existing tools, and even concierge MVPs, where you solve the customer's problem without coding anything. They also show how to evaluate the results of your testing and iterate on the design—building better products as you go.
