Now get to the point Lean Discovery & Lean Development @ AutoScout24

Back then… Product development at AutoScout24 The „discovery“ phase Ok, when you say so… We gonna build the super tool. That‘s fancy and I just know it‘ll work!

Back then… Product development at AutoScout24 The build phase 1st month… 2nd month… 3rd month… Ready!

Back then… Product development at AutoScout24 And finally – get the product to the customer ? Klick

So, where‘s the problem? Stakeholder-centric development lacks user involvement. Market research looks for averages. Market research asks users what they want and does not observe them. It leads to building products, users do not need or cannot use. “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” Henry Ford

Discover Build Measure Learn Now: Customer Value Driven Development Observe Observe Observe

Make it better! Focus on the user throughout all the steps of the product development. Observe, don‘t ask. Build small packages and release them fast in order to learn fast.

That‘s theory! What about real life?! A practical example

Here you have it – a real life example Bookmarks Dealer area

The AutoScout24 Value Canvas Customer Quotation Customer Qualification Customer Quantification Customer Insight Customer Value Business Value Key Metrics Key Metrics Uptake Potential

The classical Business Model Canvas

Who‘s my customer? Great, now I see the number of bookmarks for my cars. But what can I do with this information? I do not know the users. Visiting dealers Field sales Customer service Workshops … Start with 1 customer! Observe, don‘t ask!

What‘s his problem? The dealer knows, there are prospects – hot leads - but he cannot directly address them. He has a special offer to convince them to buy, just as he does when a prospect visits the dealership. Focus on the customer‘s 1 core problem!

How many customers have this problem? Identify more real customers with a similar problem! Observe more!

Is the solution successful? Customer Value • Increased Conversion on bookmarks in terms of visits vs. contact mails + x% conversion rate after 2 months Business Value • Dealers‘ usage of product X special offers after 4 weeks Y special offers after 2 months Define actionable key metrics!

What is the solution? Show user addresses! E-Mail system! User- admin! Customer Value Solution Detailpage! Manage Stock! Expiration date! Interfaces! Multiple creation! Text templates! Contact form! Statistics! Bookmarks ! Create! Edit! Delete! Free text!

Build: Implementing the solution Build small packages – Release fast – Learn fast Story Designs Tracking

The first solution on the bookmarks

Measure: Data grabbing User has a favorite list with special offer. User opens special offer. User contacts dealer Dealer inserts a special offer. C o n v e r s i o n F u n n e l

Learn: We have the data – what next? Small open rate Small contact rate Testing with users in lab Telephone interviews with dealers Special offer? That is promotion, I ignore promotions automatically. Special offer? That‘s great! Prospects print it and come to my dealer ship right away! ?

Learn: Adjusting the solution step by step ! Different design drafts – non promotional Fast tests of these drafts with colleagues inhouse A/B test with Optimizely on Live Implementing the winner version Release and tracking on Live Print button on special offer Little open rate Little contact rate

The result: an optimized special offer

Closing notes and take- aways
