Product Development Using Stage-Gate

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Startups can use the Stage-Gate method to build out their product development process.

Here are the steps:

Idea generation -- use brainstorming, market research, and other tools to come up with ideas.

Idea screening -- create a set of criteria to judge the ideas and determine what to pursue.

Development and testing -- flesh out the concept for an idea and test the market with it.

Business analytics -- this step determines the business model, competition, costs to build and deploy, pricing, and other aspects of the product.

Marketability tests -- test the product in small groups for feedback and use for further development.

Product development -- build the product including the promotion and fulfillment.

Commercialization -- sell the product with support, logistics, marketing, and more.

Perfect the product and pricing -- adjust the price for the market and costs to build and deliver.

The Stage-Gate process works well for products that follow a linear development path.

Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.

Let’s go startup something today.
