Teresa Torres is an author, speaker, and product discovery coach. In “Continuous Discovery Habits”, she explains how effective product teams work to discover great products. Although its lessons and examples come from a mature product company’s perspective, its lessons are extremely valuable for early-stage startups as well.
What I love about it
The Dynamics and The Principles: throughout the book, you’ll see valuable insights about how the best product trios (product managers, engineers, product designers) work together in order to discover amazing products. The countless Teresa’s recommendations will help you avoid common pitfalls you’ll face while developing your startup’s product.
The Tools: another treasure hidden in the book refers to the 3 tools recommended by Teresa: the “Opportunity-Solution Tree”, the “Experience Map”, and the “Customer Interviews”. These tools help you organize your thoughts to make everything more logical and objective. It’s not about the number of frameworks she presents, but how she clearly describes each framework, and how they connect with each other to create value.
The Examples: finally, it’s great that Teresa also brings practical examples about how the frameworks and logic fits into the real world. This will help you solidify the knowledge and improve your understanding about how you should use the recommendations in your specific context.
So, if you’re looking for a more technical/pragmatic approach about how to develop your startup’s product, this book holds the knowledge you need.
Enjoy your reading. 😉
