They found that all of these companies had the “Hedgehog Concept.” They focused on the one thing they do best, and let go of the rest. link
Sometimes when we want to build something, we just a list features that we think will help to make our product super awesome. But we forget that to have that fully feature product, how long will it take to build. Thinking about the hedgehog concept does help to put the product into perspective.
This problem not only happen to startups, it also take place within organizations. A product that we are building started off with the same problem 😂. A thousand and one requirements requested, it was through much meetings and resource management then the requirements were cut.
It’s not easy to focus. I know and write about this many times but never succeed in doing so till now where workplace forces you to do so.
