Know Your Users
The first thing to do is to understand that you’re talking about user needs not your needs. You might need to make revenue and profit but that is NOT your user need. Meet the needs of your users, then hope to make revenue and profit, not the other way around.
Do not focus on your needs. Focus on the user needs. You must identify the user needs. Who your users are will determine what practices are applicable to focus on user needs.

For each user need, Consider Stage of Evolution.
