About the Author
I'm a strong believer of the fact that human beings are born with a trait to inspect and adapt. Human beings collaborate well in small herds. So I believe that any activity (software development, coaching or training) is highly effective when worked with smaller teams, hands on than taking on an enterprise. I had privilege to sit next to customer and develop software to solve their problems 30 minutes into my first job. So I strongly believe in collaborating with customer's to build simple and valuable products rather than building sophisticated fancy products.
I have over 20 years of experience in developing software products in various roles such as a Programmer to Product Owner but every role focused on the value being created for the end user. Now, I run two startups Leanpitch[https://leanpitch.com] focused on Product Management and Product development education and leanGears [https://www.leangears.com] focused on building products for Product Management and startup space.
