Program Details

There are 10 core modules in the TechSpeak curriculum, each one corresponding to the 10 steps in the process. There are lots of details and how-to’s that I teach… over 7 hours of actionable video content. There is zero fluff and no fillers.

I condensed very large and complicated concepts and topics and extracted only the most relevant information that you need to understand…only the most important details…so you can move forward quickly.

And where appropriate, I will provide you with a step-by-step blueprint on how to execute the action items.

There are also worksheets, templates, and checklists to help guide you through the implementation of the process in your business.

Module 1

Validate And Refine The Idea

Many companies invent new products and develop features that they think and hope their customers will use and pay for…and very often, they’re wrong.

After spending months building and perfecting their ideas, only a few of their customers end up using them…that’s a lot of wasted of time, money, and resources.

Before you spend a fortune executing your ideas, you should validate and refine them AS you get feedback from your potential customers

It’s not enough to have a good idea. Your idea must solve a painkiller problem.

In this training series, you’ll learn the step-by-step blueprint for how to talk to customers so you can identify Painkiller ideas and the entire framework for conducting customer development or problem interviews….including sample interview and pre-interview questions, sample emails, how to set up the interview schedule, and lots of other tips and tricks.

Module 2

Build An Interactive Prototype
Of A Possible Solution

In module 1, you will have learned how to validate your idea in an iterative process of HYPOTHESES, TEST, LEARN, REVISE.

Now you’re ready to come up with a possible solution, by building a click-through prototype without writing any code! And then refine that solution with customers.

Prototyping is an essential step in the product development process.

Why?

Because prototypes are easier, faster, and cheaper to create than writing code and because they are easy to create, you can use them to uncover potential usability issues and to quickly test multiple solutions with your customers before you implement any specific solution.

In this training series, you’ll learn the entire step-by-step process for creating interactive prototypes, an ideation framework to help you and your team generate ideas, resources for where to find inspiration for your prototypes.

You will also learn the framework for conducting solution interviews, so you can refine your prototypes.

Module 3

Create Technical Specifications

In module 1 and 2, you will have learned how to validate your idea, build a landing page and a prototype that resonates with customers.

Once you have validated the interactive prototype, you are ready to define, build, and deploy a minimal viable version of the prototype.

The first step to help us define and build a product efficiently is to create Technical Specifications.

Lot’s of entrepreneurs ask me: can’t I just hand over a prototype to developers? Isn’t that enough?

My answer is absolutely not…that’s a recipe for disaster!

A LOT of implementation details are missing from prototypes, and if details are missing it will increase miscommunications and result in costly mistakes and time and budget overruns.

In this training series, you’ll learn the different types of technical specifications to provide your developers so they understand exactly what needs to be built and how to build it.

Module 4

Pick The Right Tools & Technologies

Now it’s time to pick the right technology solutions to build your MVP.

As a non-technical founder you rely on your tech people to make technology decisions and software recommendations.

But how do you know if what’s being recommended is the best choice?

The only way to know that your tech gurus are guiding you in the right direction is by becoming tech literate!

When you know the “tech jargon”, you’ll be able to

Better communicate and understand developers

Ask the right questions and understand why certain technical decisions are being made

Fully participate in the discussions and not just blindly trust your tech people

In this training series, you’ll learn a lot of tech jargon and a high level overview of lots of technology tools that will help cut the development time of your application.

Module 5

When it comes to pricing and budgeting, very often entrepreneurs are at the mercy of developers.

There is a huge cost associated with not understanding the estimation process, not knowing and understanding developer’s best practices, and not having cost control mechanisms in place.

In this training series, you’ll learn all the things that affect the cost of development and how to use that information to pick and choose what to build based on your cost and time constraints.
