Context : There was a long debate during the Roadmap Session 4 about how to name a key target objective for the Resonate Platform as part of our mission to define “strategic goals” (here refered to as OKRs “Objectives with Key Results”).
I’m first offering a definition for the objective itself :
“The objective is to make the Resonate Platfrom suitable, inviting and efficient for Professionals looking to join us (here defined as people and companies already being able to sustain themselves by working within the music industry’s established structures), by meeting the minimum requirement for their specific ways to work both in in legal terms and in terms of infrastructure.”
We’ve proposed to call this broad goal :
- Professionalize the platform
- Platform proficiency
- Minimum Diserable Product (Platform?)
- Establish Baseline Performance
I think, regardless of the name we choose, the fundamentals of this specific goal to me is the audience it’s trying to adress : We want to be a serious offering for people who are used to work with similarly serious services, which in “professional people terms” means : not wasting their time, fullfilling legal requirements, fitting with pre-existing standardized workflows, a certain extent of automated features etc.
While this doesn’t mean the result of this objective can’t and won’t also benefit just about anyone using our tools in the end, the reason it’s a separate issue is because the “minimum level of requirements” threshold to onboard professionnals is considered higher and more specific than to onboard single indie creators.
I think this summarizes this “goal” well enough to allow some room to try to find the best phrasing this community wants but if people think I somehow misinterpreted the goal feel free to say so.
In the end my personnal opinion is we could mix some of the above propositions :
“Platform proficiency for industry professionals”
“MDP for onboarding Professionals”
“Baseline Performance for onboarding Professionals”
Something like that. But I’m not extremely invested in any particular phrasing as long as we agree on the definition and I encourage anyone to coin a better term if they feel like it.
