CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT - From the idea to the problem/solution fit:
If a business idea is to be tested without great risk and transformed into reality, a lean methodology is
This requires viable business hypotheses and problem interviews with customers in order to check whether
actually have the problem that is to be solved.
Once the problem has been validated, the solution must also be validated. Solution interviews and the
the solution serve as a demo to validate it to customers and to test the pricing.
I can perform these steps by order. In practice, however, it has been shown that it makes sense to carry out or
moderate these steps together with the founder / founding team.
MVP - Development of an MVP for Product/Market Fit:
If the problem solution is clear and should be tested cost-effectively, I build and operate the corresponding
If necessary, we will hold a workshop together in advance to develop the feature set. We also work together to
develop KPIs for Acquisition, Activation, Retention, Revenue and Referrals, which are then tracked.
