What is the difference between MVP, MMP & MMF ?
Network:98587



Through my ACP Journey, I learned that MVP (Minimal Viable Product), MMP (Minimal Marktable Product) & MMF (Minimal Marketable Feature) each serves a different purpose in agile projects.

What is your opinion and how does each provide business value ?

Rami -

I've found most new product owners don't understand what an MVP is and need a lot of coaching to define one. Eric Ries's definition of it being a method of maximizing learning for the least investment is a good one - it forces the PO to identify what question or hypothesis they are trying to answer or prove. A great example of an MVP was Zappos' initial experiment to validate their online shoe purchasing service...

An MMP is usually made up of a number of MMFs. One difference between an MMP and an MVP is that the latter might not be marketable but is a way to learn whether we are going down the right path or not.

I totally agree with you. MMP is marketable and could be sold and generate revenue while MVP is to gain feedback from end users and the market.

I can think of an MVP that needs feedback from users and the market (hehe).

I come across the term MVP a lot more than MMP.

Yes, but MMP functionality is not necessarily the same as that of MVP as the purpose for each is different.

I got valuable info about MVP, MMP & MMF from you all - Kiron, Rami & Sante.

I have been reading a lot of Agile frameworks talk about MVP very frequently & MMP is very rarely discussed about..
