It’s always THE question for PMs, what to build so that they can move the needle? This question keeps me awake at night, and makes me think, “am I building THE right thing or not? How can I deliver the value?” Discovery is the key to the success of the PM role.

- Dictionary meaning of ‘Viable means: capable of working successfully; feasible. But what does ‘Viable’ means in MVP? Is its development cost, is it possible to build the product or is it usage by customers?
