You’re a solid salesperson, but all those ideas have to coalesce into something that can actually be built. That’s where the product backlog comes in.
There’s a lot stacked against you as an entrepreneur. Around every corner is a startup killer, ready to take everything away, leaving you and your new business in the dirt. But if you recognize these threats, you can avoid them and step out of the darkness, safe and sound, hand-in-hand with your successful startup.
Nearly every Product Owner is different, for better or for worse. But there’s one type that tends be a bigger pain in the ass than others. This is the paranoid PO, the one that is convinced that everyone is out to get them, the one that thinks every wants to steal their idea. These are the ones that carry around non-disclosure agreements like a proud father carrying pictures of his kids. But as product strategists we’re here to say that NDAs aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on.
You’ve got an idea for a new product, a new startup venture. Who do you talk to? Obviously, the first people you’ll want to run to and brag about are those closest to you – friends, family, the UPS man, whoever.

That’s great, that’s what successful product development is all about, but what you also need to realize is that you’re not telling consumers what they want or need, you’re being informed by them.
Mobile apps can be pretty unpredictable. It’s difficult to know exactly what is going to be a hit. It’s a little bit easier to determine what is going to be a flop. As Los Angeles mobile app developers, we’ve ridden the rollercoaster that is development, and we’ve managed to have a lot of success doing so. What we’ve learned to do is spot trends.
It’s already started but more users are taking their devices out of their hands completely and putting them on their body. Wearables are the new thing and this trend is going to pick up even more steam in 2015.
