    is developer? is not a developer? is in a startup?

    would like to be in a startup? thinks enterpreneurship happens only in startups? knows what is this Lean start-up anyway? Who

Building a minimal product (/service) iteratively by defining riskiest assumption, and validating it by devising a ”scientific experiment”. Eventually, if you’re lucky, you’ll have ”product/market fit” and can concentrate on optimizing and scaling.

    Build Product Measure Data Learn Ideas Minimum Viable Product Continuous

    deployment Eliminate waste Agile software development is about Turning ideas like in user stories into (minimum viable) product by eliminating waste
  14. 22.

    Build Product Measure Data Learn Ideas Learn a thing at

    a time ~ limit WIP Kanban could also be utilized at prioritizing learning
  15. 23.

    Comparison of Scrum and Kanban to Lean Startup Scrum prescribes

    roles Scrum prescribes timeboxed iterations Kanban limits WIP per workflow state Both are empirical Scrum resists change within an iteration Scrum board is reset between each iteration Scrum prescribes cross-functional teams Scrum backlog items must fit in a sprint Scrum prescribes estimation and velocity Both allow working on multiple products simultaneously Left side by Henrik Kniberg http://www.crisp.se/file-uploads/Kanban-vs-Scrum.pdf No roles – everybody does Suggest quickest possible iterations Limits WIP by deciding what to learn Hyper-empirical – evidence based Discourages but allows change Ideas board could be reseted Assumes cross-functional team Tries to avoid big chunks Innovation accounting Irrelevant – product is the startup

    Build Product Measure Data Learn Ideas Minimum Viable Product Sometimes

    Minimum Viable Product is no Build at all What’s the Agile team role then?
  17. 26.

    Should there be any product if the goal is to

    find out if people want to get their timeline filtered?
  18. 27.

    What do you mean by maximizing probability for success? Rudolf

    says: Agile already maximizes value! Don’t mess with Rudolf or your xmas will be dark!

    Agile is very effective on transforming wrong idea into a

    product wrong idea flames out eventually

    Agile is very effective on transforming wrong idea into a

    product Lean uses iterations to learn what is a good idea flame out quickly and adapt

    Agile shop should consider themselves a Lean Startup Which wrong

    assumptions you caress about your business? Do you employ vanity metrics? Can you innovate your business model?
