How do you as product owner decide that a product is feasible?



  • You as a product owner just got an idea from a stakeholder and need to decide if it's feasible? What steps should you follow in order to make sure the product is not going to be a total fail? Note: Stakeholder really believes in the idea but you are responsible for selling the idea to the development team with right arguments for success



  • This is a really good question and one that doesn't get asked enough!

    Some things you can do to gain confidence in the feasibility of an idea:

    • Build a business case for the idea (testing likely value versus likely cost)
    • Build a prototype or a mock up that allows you to gauge customer response
    • Build a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_viable_product - something that is just functional enough for you to gain valuable feedback

    It is also important to run the idea by the development team to check the technical feasibility of the idea.
