Effective, Simple, Durable

A Product Manager’s cheat-sheet to deliver great features

Effective

Simple

Durable

  • Technically durable: will the new feature be stable for some time or will you have to come back and do extra work soon? If your case is the second one, you are creating technical debt. Bad news, you are compromising your future speed for a slightly quicker delivery now.
  • The problem will stay solved: does the quality of the solution degrades along the time? Will new features make your solution less effective? Watch out! You might be creating product debt. Bad news, you are compromising your future capacity to revisit already-solved problems.
  • Find and solve the actual problem.
  • Ensure your users know how to use it.
  • Find the simplest effective solution
  • Ship small pieces often.
  • Make your solution technically stable
  • Make your solution sustainable and resistent to external changes
