Utility experiment

Lean Phase: Solution

Assumption:  Locals in Jumtha and Vengara have a positive response to the features we intend to include in our solution.  

Time Box:  24 hours


Success Metric:

Metric: The proportion of total interactions and positive reactions to the tested feature list

Green Light: Proceed - Prototype solution with tested feature list

Success Point: >60% of utility testing interactions respond positively to the feature list

Orange Light: Reassess

Red Light: Reassess tested feature list, gather feedback on tested feature list from customers

Failure Point: <15% conversion rate


Experiment build

  • Since currency testing has provided us with the direct contact details of interested customers, we can call people who responded positively to the currency test
  • Call them: ‘You responded positively to our initial offer with our early access system, and wanted to know how you would feel if we were to have a product that could do….’
  • Record responses as either negative, neutral or positive
  • Ask if they have any feedback or any additional questions they may have
  • Tally results and compare to success metric
