Product strategy. The User factor

Igor Kuzmin, Head of Product Management, ISPsystem

Product development and its ongoing management is a comprehensive process which starts from the conception of an idea, matures to product release, and then cycles infinitely through the previous iterations of testing and putting forward hypothesis. The main factor in generating ideas is how in demand the product is by the end user. In order for software to be in high demand, it is required to adhere to a variety of demands, not limited to functionality it provides alone, but also to the user experience it offers.

User requirements are a vast paradigm, which encompasses such elements as functionality, problem solving for the user, including issues the user is not even aware of yet, user lifecycle and expectations, UI/UX, and user feedback.

In this presentation we will dive into some of the tendencies and best practices, and what are some of the trends we are witnessing in product development and management.
