Halim Madi, Senior Product Manager at Stripe

Product Development Fundamentals: 3 steps, 2 pillars, 1 goal

3 steps: This talk expands on a previous talk about Product Building Fundamentals (Youtube link). It starts by explaining the 3 necessary steps every team needs to nail when embarking on the product journey (Understand, Identify, Execute).

2 pillars: It then dives into the two metrics every starting team should focus on: Retention and Engagement. I'll explain why retention matters most and how a team can figure out its retention and engagement metrics. This part is based, with permission, on excellent material from Reforge.com (Retention, the silent killer).

1 goal: The invisible metric for each team booting up a new product is momentum and stamina. Founding team (be it startups or intra-corporate ones) disproportionately burnout after their initial burst. This last bit is a number of advices to take care of one's human capital and team integrity through care-centric product development principles.
