Some of the greatest product innovations began with the question: “You know what would be cool? If we could just...” 
In a disruptive landscape, where change is rapid, and inevitably upends the status quo, product, engineering and R&D teams are always bristling with new ideas. 
Sometimes good ideas are born from sudden flashes of insight or discovery; if they seem particularly promising, developers and engineers are quick to apply lean startup principles to quickly prototype and validate them. 
But what happens next? Do we keep building on them? Do we rework them? Do we discard them so that they join the growing pile of other aborted ideas?        
These are hard questions; and, to answer them, one must consider a slew of factors: Opportunity costs, resource allocation, technical considerations, buy-ins from senior management, among other serious considerations that stand in the way.  
Join Conor Delahunty of Trulioo as he calls upon his own challenges and experiences in building something entirely new while working within the constraints of existing product roadmaps. This talk will cover: 
  • Balancing ideas with expectations around delivering actual code and features 
  • Wanting to do a lot, but being unable to execute on pace 
  • Sustainable Prototyping: Throw-away vs build-on-top
  • Ensuring a continuous feedback loop
  • Acting on new ideas without burdening the rest of your team with extra work
  • Turning problems and obstacles into new learnings
