Michael and Ivanka's Grand Podcast


Episode 192 - Minimum Viable Products

Season 5, Ep. 192

How well does something need to be before it’s ready to launch? How pretty does it need be? Michael is unlearning professional habits from years working for clients and allowing himself to release some janky stuff for market validation. Ivanka shares what happened on Ubuntu Phone and blows open the whole conversation to encompass the tradeoff between functionality, context and story telling.
