The Art of Building Products: Slow and Steady Wins the Race - Insurjo'24

Kickoff Session with Ravi Mehta

Are you tired of those flashy, big-bang product launches that promise the moon but often crash and burn? Well, you're not alone! In today's fast-paced world, it's time to rethink our approach to building products, and Ravi Mehta has some sage advice for us.

Big Bang Launch? Nah, We're Good!

Launching a product with a big bang might seem like a glamorous idea, but it's often a recipe for disaster. Instead, take a more down-to-earth approach. Start small and iterate your way to success.

Inoperable Iteration? Thanks, but No Thanks!

Inoperable iterations are like trying to build a house with bricks that don't fit together. It's messy, frustrating, and ultimately a waste of time. Instead, focus on user-centric iterations that make your product better with every step. Make each iteration useful, and you'll be on the right track.

Product Vision vs. Short-Term Targets

It's a classic battle: the long-term dream vs. the short-term goals. While having a grand product vision is essential, don't forget to set short-term targets as well. Think of it as a roadmap to your destination. The vision is your ultimate goal, and the short-term targets are the milestones along the way.

The Equation for Success

Now, here's a simple equation to keep in mind:

In other words, set clear objectives that your team can realistically achieve, and track your progress with measurable metrics. It's like having a GPS for your product development journey!

So, there you have it—Ravi Mehta's guide to building products the right way. It may not be as flashy as a Big Bang launch, but it's a more reliable path to success. Remember, slow and steady wins the race, and in the world of product development, that's no joke!
