I think the following question is apt, but the answer can be very scary (albeit useful)- "Would your business survive/thrive without product ___"?
Most of the time the answer to this question is "yes", but I think the goal is to get as close as possible to "no", wherein the business very clearly sees the value of your product.

Hi Sindhu, thanks for the prompt. IMO, the important questions could be:
- What's the intention
- What's the desired outcome
- How does it affect an individual's or the team's productivity
P.S. Defining OKRs can also be helpful for this.
I never ask any direct questions related to our product. Try to keep the conversation organic. As a maker, you need to catch the "signals" which validate/invalidate your hypothesis or assumptions about your product/idea.
