The Platform Journey

I put everything I had into it

Just could not imagine it would turn out this way

How can you go from “zero” to a functional mock-up in a week?

That is what I was asking our developers this week about the dashboard project

They had a simple response that was astonishing… We believe in your vision!

As I am writing this I am still blown away!

The conversation that hit home this week for me was with our lead developer and myself

The topic was on our launch date and functionality

He tells me that we are on schedule to have beta testers at the beginning of February

He then dropped the bomb on me…The platform will not be perfect and will not have all the functionality you want

My response…. “WHY?”

He calmly told me “The platform will be evolving daily for the next 3 to 6 months.”

I had one thing on my mind…..VALUE….I asked

How do we provide value to our users if all functions are not available for beta testing?

His answer was direct and to the point “Features we have developed for beta testing will give users back 3 to 4 hours daily by using the platform for their due diligence.”

I then added, “Our number one goal is to automate as much of the due diligence process for our users as possible, and ensure the data we provide is accurate and timely.”

What a great conversation and connection we had.  It is great to work with a team that shares your vision and values!

Every day I know more and more I have made the right decision to develop the platform

When have you taken on a large project what have been some of the struggles you have gone through?
