Last week we had a workshop on failure case analysis in product development module. You must be wondering why a startup should even think negative failures instead of building the product. Being a hustler we always look around the opportunities surrounding us. We frame the failures in accordance to our product features, rather than building features in accordance to the failure in the current system.
The question is where are the tools for analyzing failure in your startup toolkit. If you have one you do not need to read this any further, I wish all the good luck for your team. And if you are not sure what sense of failure I am talking about lets go through this.
This is the fourth time we are designing the interface for project papri. What made us to do this is not change in idea but rather the change in problems. Yes problems do change with time as your interest. The task is to frame the problem rigidly that will not affect the future decision. A sense of failure is necessary to frame the problem rigidly.
Being a founder I shall not think about failure of my idea. It weakens our energy and vision to make the product. At the same time we shall also give the best in our first shot and gradually develop and optimize as necessary. A question to the Indian incubators, and startup accelerators, did we have open source toolkit for failure analysis as we have various startup management online tools.
I will carry forward with my thoughts on this. Meanwhile you can comment on which is more important.
