Prioritizing for Profit
One of the central tenants of Agile practices is the emphasis on customer value. That’s great, but if you’re a product company then focusing on business value alone isn’t enough. You need to convert business value into actual money flowing into your company. Consider, for example, a company that offers their product through a perpetual license with an annual maintenance fee. Customers expect the product to continue to improve in every release. But if the company doesn’t understand how to extract more money from its customers for each release, pretty soon they won’t be able to keep releasing at all! Same structure, different rules for other kinds of products. Consider a SaaS provider of software solutions that charges a monthly fee per user. Should the product simply keep getting better every month for the same price?
