You need a framework for deciding if you’ve achieved Product/Market Fit and whether you still have it later. Here’s mine.
Very few people write about maintaining PMF vs achieving it in the first place so thanks for putting this out there Sean.
It reminded me a lot of this post by Casey Winters which introduces a helpful concept of a theoretical temporal PMF threshold that the organization is either delivering above or below at any given time and hence ‘has’ or ‘does not have’ PMF. Also as a rule that (customer) expectations are always increasing and this is a good reason to watch PMF status like a hawk as you suggest!

Pretty darn well articulated 🙌🏽.
Doesn’t matter if this your first rodeo in startup-verse or a serial entrepreneur like myself. These lesson speak truth to your core.
Thanks for sharing Sean!
