Startup CEOs often believe that customers will only accept perfect products.This mindset makes it difficult for them to build an MVP with a limited feature set, as an MVP is not supposed to be the final product, but it will achieve its goal by process of elimination. However, many business owners don't wait and begin by including everything the final product will offer. In other words, they don't just stick to the minimum number of features, but embed most or all features. They also try to make top-notch designs, leaving no space for future changes and improvements.
The reason for this fast approach is obvious: to impress the audience. This is why developers feel the need to polish the user experience by adding more features to display the app's multi-functionality.
Deciding which features are crucial while developing an MVP depends on two factors:
The first is the feature selection process, which involves going through the MVP's goals and objectives, as well as customer needs, to determine the key MVP features relevant to the goals.
The second factor is the description of each proposed feature and its specific benefits regarding the predetermined goals and user expectations. This enables startups to have a clear view of their goals and avoid adding unnecessary features at the MVP stage.
