We believe [this statement is true]. We will know we’re [right/wrong] when we see the following feedback from the market : [Qualitative feedback] and /or [quantitative feedback] and/or [key performance indicator change] More granular description of our assumptions that We believe that [doing this/ building target speciﬁc this feature/creating this areas of our experience]for [these people/ personas] will achieve [this outcome] product for We will know this is true when we see [this market feedback, quantitative experimentation measure or qualitative insight] .Think - hypothesis statement
Get set to deliver on the value proposition for your product by mapping out the features of the MVP. The emphasis is focusing, and ﬁguring out what not to build at this time.Make - identify MVP
