Lean Startup

Eric Ries‘ seminal book The Lean Startup can be applied to many facets of software development.

Lean methods aren’t just for startups – they’re a way to spend less money and effort building the right (and most profitable) thing.

Software development is inherently unpredictable, and companies that invest heavily to design and then build a comprehensive software product or service before delivering any of it to customers often lose money.

This typically happens because the designed product includes a large number of ideas, and only a small percentage of these turn out to be valuable to users. In some cases, the core theory of it’s most valuable feature is a mistake, making the entire product a failure.

Eric describes in The Lean Startup approaches he used at his first companies to employ the scientific method to direct the activities teams use to deliver products. He also provides examples of how to do so with minimal investment.
