Product Idea: When a manager’s idea went viral in the company…
How did it happen?
A development manager came up with an idea for a new service. She discussed it internally but it gained no traction. There were doubts concerning its potential level of demand and barriers around implementation. Nonetheless the manager saw its potential. She just lacked proof. She reworked the idea, simplified the implementation requirements and ran a test via the Fastuna platform using the Product Idea solution.
