You know what you want to create, why it will be good for your business and who might buy it…now it’s time to make a plan and start figuring out to get there.
Do you have a written specification for your new product? Or is it still something you see in your mind, but have yet to put on paper?
An outside expert can offer valuable experience or ideas from other industries that will serve you well at this stage.
Gathering requirements, developing a specification document and setting development targets can be time consuming……and if you have more than a few items on your list, you already understand the challenge all too well.
Call when you need a hand with:
Reviewing the information at hand and creating instructions for your vision of the product is such an exciting time. The wish list, the grand vision…the targets and measures. How will you determine if the product is on track along the way?
Expand your horizons before narrowing to one focus (especially if it is your own idea). There are usually hundreds of ways to solve any problem. Before you go too narrow….go broad at least for a short while to explore options.
Whiteboard as many ideas and approaches as you and all the knowledgeable resources you can gather can come up with. Only after that…..narrow to the few you want to pursue.
Now the Plan. Unfortunately, we all have limitations. How much time do you have? Financial resources? Staff? What Milestones will you measure? Do you have a Stage-Gate system in place or is your internal process more free-form?
Things that get tracked get done.
