About the Book

This ebook is a curated collection of methods and practices for creating digital products using Agile and Lean principles. At ThoughtWorks we build custom products and work closely with our clients to evolve practices that adapt to their industry and environments. Our coachees told us they don’t have time to read long lengthy books about the theory of lean product development, or to sort through the dozen or so books to understand the basics of building products (strategy, user experience, user research, agile, scrum, kanban, stories, testing, continuous delivery, continuous integration, … the list is long!). They also told us they want a reference guide of information on practical tools, activities and tips that they can follow along. So we created this guide as a curated collection of hand picked techniques, tools and practices for lean product development.You’ll learn how to:

  • Deliver customer value faster by reducing time from “concept to cash"
  • Validate early product concepts, solutions and features
  • Thin slice your product idea to enable frequent releases of value
  • Apply lean, six sigma and agile delivery methods for product development

Meet Paulo Caroli , the Lean MVP and retrospective guy that's taken a unique approach to people and interactions over process and tools (first sentence from the Agile Manifesto). He thinks product creation and evolution should be based on real learnings (goodbye long projects planned on hypothetical requirements). It should be based on the minimum viable products (the fastest enabler for validated learning based on real usage). 

Principal consultant at Thoughtworks Brazil and co-founder of AgileBrazil,  Paulo Caroli has over twenty years of experience in software development, passing in various corporations in Brazil, India, USA and Latin America. In 2000, he met the Extreme Programming and since then has focused its expertise in processes and practices of Agile & Lean.
