Product Management is a continuous discovery process. Business strategies evolve, new customer insights unfold, competitive landscape changes.
With this ever-changing environment, how do you decide you have learned enough to define an MVP? The key is to identify the common denominator. A common denominator is a fundamental problem or the key technology element that you need no matter what. Once you identify the common denominator, you can establish your first hypothesis. Using this hypothesis, you can define the MVP that will maximize the learning against this hypothesis. Once you equip the engineering team with a well-defined MVP with clear acceptance criteria, you unblock yourself to discover the vNext. In this session, I will share my learning on how to systematically discover the common denominator that helps define the MVP. I will then introduce an opportunity-based prioritization framework to continuously discover and refine the vNext features and help build a product roadmap.

Main takeaways:
- How to know if you have defined the MVP
- How to identify the common Denominator
- How to build a roadmap from an opportunity based prioritization framework

Founded in Silicon Valley in 2014, Product School is the global leader in product management training, with over 10,000 alumni, 20 campuses worldwide and a live online campus.


Product School’s certificates (PMC™,FPMC™,PLC™) are the most important industry-recognized certificates for product managers; and all of our instructors are senior-level product managers working at top technology companies such as Google, Facebook, Airbnb, PayPal, LinkedIn, and Netflix.

The curriculum is designed to fit into work schedules with small classes held in the evenings or on weekends to ensure that both instructors and students can maintain their full-time jobs.


Students at Product School enjoy a healthy mix of hands-on projects, group activities, case studies, and panel discussions. Through this, they learn how to lead cross-functional teams, and experience building digital products from end to end. Students are also taught how to succeed in product management interviews and given access to our alumni community where they can expand their network, find mentors, and access job opportunities.



In addition to individual classes, Product School also delivers custom corporate training programs to Fortune 500 companies seeking to upskill their existing teams or onboard new talent.


Product School is committed to pushing the product community forward.
