Agile Software Development

MVP

A minimum viable product is “…that version of a new product which allows a team to collect the maximum amount of validated learning about customers with the least effort."1 i.e. a product or offering with the smallest amount of functionality that (dis)proves something about the viability of the product.

In 2009, Eric Ries released The Lean Startup, outlining his methodology for spinning up a startup that can iterate and adapt to the (“blue ocean”) market, without the overhead and expense of a long development pipeline.
