Five qualities that make a Great Product

I listened to this podcast by Jeff Weiner , CEO LinkedIn and here are his 5 pointers that he put together after he took over as Product chief about 6 months ago.

  1. Singular Value Proposition and focus – Does one thing really really well.

    1. Canonical example: Google
  2. Simple, Intuitive user experience and anticipates user’s needs

    1. Canonical Example: Waze
  3. Product exceeds user’s expectations. Product builds a relationship with it’s users.

    1. Canonical Example: Sonos
  4. Great products resonate emotionally. How does the product make you feel.

    1. Canonical Example: Tesla  (It makes you feel like driving the future)
  5. Great products have a meaningful impact on your life.

    1. Canonical Example: iPhone (A phone that finally became a control panel of your life)
