Overview

Watkins Bay's Product > Market Fit Bootcamp is a five-day iterative program incorporating a functional team of between 7 and 10 members plus internal experts, customers, suppliers, distribution partners, and other stakeholders at relevant stages to dive deep into a specific opportunity and unlock specific value. It is held initially over 2 days with an additional 3 days over the following three weeks and then a number of milestone gate catchups of=ver the following 90 days.

The Watkin's Bay Product > Market Fit Bootcamp is best suited for

a team that has a budget and mandate to launch a new product but has challenges in the execution in short time frames. The program

is an iterative process, with each step, day, week and month building

on the other, testing the current assumptions and feeding

back to previous steps any learnings to further develop

the Product Roadmap, feeding into the Go-To-Market Plan.

The five-day program starts at 09:30 am daily with a

morning and afternoon break of 20 minutes plus a lunch

break of one hour. The day will finish at 5:00 pm each day. 

As part of the program, there are three additional check-ins

with the team over the following 90 days to review actions

from the plan, benchmark against metrics, and codify any

learnings, and adapt the plan for continued iterative

execution.

Day 1: Empathy & Understanding

Day 1: "Understanding & Empathy"

Day 1 is integral to the program as it lays the foundations for future referencing, direction and team alignment. The laying of these foundations, based on research and allow a greater understanding of what the problem is that your customers want to be solved and are willing to change their behaviour and pay for your offering, what makes your solution/product/service different from the competition including insights into the question whether the growth opportunity, if you have a great product-market fit, is actually worth solving. That is, is there future growth?

The Watkins Bay Corporate Innovation Team uses a defined set of tools and frameworks to provide the right mix of structure, flow, ideation and validation of each step to ensure a clear understanding of the landscape for future critical thinking and alignment with your product to the market.

Day 3: "Protoype Testing 1: Results & Iteration"

Day 3 builds on the previous two days with an initial analysis of customer feedback on the various market tests. The team will go deeper into competitor offerings, customer journey maps, empathy maps and customer personas and initial validation of the problem and whether the product is a solution customers initially would pay for. Initial price testing relating to inelastic and elastic consumption behaviours based on various price points.

Continued engagement with customers, experts, suppliers and internal stakeholders is critical during Day 3, as gaining specific feedback on various price models and understanding key cost drivers may impact profitability in the short and long term.
