Pandora prioritization with Kayvon Ghaffari, LiquidPlanner

About The Episode

In this episode, we speak with Kayvon Ghaffari, Senior Program Manager at LiquidPlanner, about his awesome approach to feature prioritization and product development.

We explore how he recently implemented the Pandora prioritization process to bring the whole company on board when making important product roadmap decisions.

Who Should Listen?

This episode is perfect for product managers who are interested in learning how to best manage the wealth of possible features to implement for their product.

Anyone who is involved with company roadmaps will also find Kayvon’s advice extremely beneficial.

Key Takeaways:

  • 90 days is a good amount of time to plan for your roadmap. Any longer than that and things are subject to change.

  • “What would be stupid for us not to build within the next 90 days?” - A fantastic question to ask regarding product development.

  • For development meetings, invite the people who have your company’s values and future at heart.

  • Putting price tags on what you can achieve helps everyone understand why decisions are being made. - “Every yes is ten thousand no’s.”

  • Prioritizing your feature requests helps otherwise ignored ideas bubble up to the surface, where they can be discussed in depth.

  • Don’t forget about your strategy - don’t become a “feature factory”.
