In today's hyper-competitive market, startups often face the challenge of rapidly converting an idea into a tangible product. Yet, many founders stumble when it comes to defining the core of their offering. Enter Param: your trusted partner in sculpting a minimum viable product (MVP) that hits the mark, leveraging the time-tested 20/80 principle.

The 20/80 Principle?

At its essence, the 20/80 principle, also known as the Pareto Principle, suggests that 20% of the inputs are responsible for 80% of the outputs. In the context of MVP development, it implies identifying and focusing on the 20% of product features that will cater to 80% of user needs.

Why the 20/80 Principle Matters in MVP Development

Speed to Market: By concentrating on the vital 20%, startups can rapidly move from ideation to product launch. This swift market entry can offer a competitive advantage, validating ideas faster and iterating based on user feedback.

Budget Efficiency: Developing a product is costly. By narrowing the focus, startups can efficiently allocate resources, ensuring they're not wasting funds on features that won’t significantly impact user experience or value proposition.

User-centric Focus: The 20% core features usually solve primary pain points of users. By delivering this effectively, startups are more likely to achieve user satisfaction and loyalty early on.


Common Mistakes Founders Make

Overbuilding: The excitement of building a product often leads founders to overextend, adding features they assume users want. This not only delays the launch but also complicates the user experience.

Undervaluing Feedback: Ignoring early user feedback can be detrimental. Users interacting with the MVP provide invaluable insights that can guide iterations and refinements.
