During the development process, building a polished product quickly and cheap are priorities in constant opposition that need to be balanced effectively. The keys, as Phil Libin describes in the video below, are to understand the trade-offs and focus on the priority appropriate for the stage of the company, the market dynamics, and the goals of the product.   

Phil Libin is the founder and CEO of Evernote - a service helping millions of people worldwide remember everything of value in their daily lives.
