What is a product?
Updated: Nov 3
Whenever people ask me what I do? I would say I am a product consultant. More often than not, I got this baffled look on their face asking, what is a PRODUCT?
To put it simply, a product is a physical object, or a website or app people interact with, in order to achieve an end goal. For example:
A toothbrush is an example of a physical product.
We, end consumer, use it to clean our teeth ( interaction),
so to keep our mouths clean ( end goal).
Uber is an example of a product.
We, use the app, to book a ride (interaction),
so to get to the destination (end goal).
You got it. So pretty much everything we interact with can be classified as a product. At a broader level, it can also be referred to the services a company provides. This is commonly known as a service or experience.
As a product consultant, our role is to provide service to an organisation ( whether you are building a digital or physical product ) to help you to create an end product that is simple, easy, delightful to use and fulfills an end purpose well. The end result? More happy customers.
