I would like to share some of my views/throughs and explain about project and product development.
In “Collaborizm” world, everything is treated as projects. But in reality, there’s a difference between a project and product development. A “Product” is considered to run over the years, has a great vision and usually gets into market as versions. Let’s consider an example of “Coffee Bot”, “Node Bot”, “Valtrack-V2” these are products and not a simple projects. With “Valtrack” you can notice a version tied to it (V2).
Coming to the lifecycle of “Project” vs “Product”, the lifecycle of project is very short whereas for the “Products” is can go over the years. I would say, it can span across years. A Project is like one time development. Though it may have specific features but there’s a difference between a project vs product.
Let me know your thoughts, I can share some of my real experience here in “Collaborizm”.
