My experience with crowdSPRING over the past several years has proven to me that with few exceptions, startups must keep their feature-sets simple and release software more often so that they can iterate and leverage feedback from users. Time and time again, we’ve made the mistake of over-thinking a feature only to learn that we didn’t do a good job planning and took far too long to release that feature.
Over the past three months, we’ve done a better job – simplifying our scope and iterating more often. It’s clear to me that what we’re doing now – simple, focused features followed by iteration – is the best way for startups to operate. I explain why in the following video.
Do you agree that startups should simplify features and iterate more often?
