For your SaaS product to succeed, there are underlying considerations that you need to have in place in order to maximize all the potential possibilities that your product has to offer. And according to Geoff Watts of Agile Pubcast, one of the things you need to keep in mind from the designing process all the way up to launch is that you don't know everything. That in itself can open a whole new world of possibilities for you, your product, and your business.

It's nearly impossible to know everything that your potential customers want and need from a SaaS product and the best way for you to get those answers is by getting a Scrum which can help you either deliver the Most Viable Product (MVP) or de-risk the riskiest part of what you're doing.

Tune in to this episode of the Big Break Software Podcast where Geoff Watts discusses his agile coaching business, all things Scrum related, how to improve your SaaS product to match your target group, and the vital role of Scrum Masters. Stay tuned.
