Customer Driven Product Development

"customer support tickets are a lot like roaches. Seeing a roach in the kitchen is usually an indication that there are thousands more roaches in the basement.

"Ultimately, if your goal is to build a great company — and that is our goal — you have to figure out your sustainable customer value proposition (your product differentiation) and your business model. Growth without solving for the USP and equation of the business only gets you so far."

Questions to ask

  • When in rush - ask “where am I going?”
  • When ready to give up - ask “what am I assuming?”
  • When happy with results - ask “how can I do better?”

  1. Rapid yet controlled exploratory testing
  2. More and More Automated Testing
  3. Collaboration with Product Owners from day one
  4. Helping teams think through non-functional requirements
  5. Making sure every sprint is done-done

Finally subtle one but very important: Promoting “I am here to help the team deliver high quality and customer satisfaction” over “I am here to break your code”.

"Built-in paradox with the notion of people management is that most high-performing people do not like to be managed."

Hence they boldly decided to eliminate offerings that do not align with that focus. This decision is costly in short-term with an immediate impact on revenue (almost $2 Billion dollars). However, in long run it is decisions like this that position companies for greatness.
