MVP (minimum viable product) is used in product management and software development. It refers to the first version of a product released to test whether there is a market for it.

What Is MVP?

MVP (Minimum Viable Product) is the smallest thing you can build to test your idea and get customer feedback. This can be a prototype, a mockup, or even an image on Twitter. The critical thing about MVP is that it’s intentionally small.

MVP is term software developers use to describe a prototype with only the most basic features. The goal of an MVP is to test your fundamental assumptions about users and their needs. A good MVP considers the cost of developing, deploying, and maintaining the feature set.

MVP (Minimum Viable Product) must be something you can build quickly, cheaply, and easily (ideally by one person).

MVP (Minimum Viable Product) must be something that gives you feedback from real users as quickly as possible.

The more it costs you to build your MVP, the less likely it will be successful because you won’t know if people like or want it until after you spend all that money building it!
