Solve the Product Maze Backwards — Psychohistory
Three Questions in Product Prioritization
In my experience, there are three common questions that often come up when product features are being debated:
- Should we build this?
- When should we build this?
- How should should we build this?
Unfortunately, even highly talented teams can become get bogged down in debate and uncertainty when all of these questions become entangled. As engineers & designers are professionally trained to answer the question of “How,” the worst debates tend to happen around the questions of “Should” and “When.”
