The Two Customer Conclusions Every Product Launch Should Foster

March 29th, 2017

In our work with Research Partners, we often get asked about new product launches. Eric Ries talks about product launches in his book The Lean Startup. In that book, he introduces a concept called the minimum viable product.

According to Ries:

…the minimum viable product is that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort…
