About the Book
Agile projects place emphasis on early and continuous delivery of valuable software, according to the business objectives and the needs of the primary users. Lean product creation promotes incremental release of the product--MVP, the minimum viable product, or the simpler version of a product that can be made available to the business.
But how to understand the MVP and start an agile project as quickly as possible? How to ensure the team start the product creation with a shared understanding and an effective plan?
This book provides you with a recipe, the technique "To the Point": a sequence of activities to understand and plan for the incremental delivery of MVPs. This technique organizes product ideas and features in a model that helps to kick start the product creation on a proven track. These are some of the recipe activities (or ingredients): product vision, product objectives, personas, features, prioritization, user journeys, mapping values , understanding risk and effort, estimation, capacity planning, MVP understanding and MVP sequencing.
About the Author
For the past nine years, Paulo Caroli has been practicing agile software development. Every agile project Paulo has worked on started with a few weeks for shared understanding and a product backlog creation: Inception. With the advent of Lean MVP (2010), long Inceptions and product backlogs were no longer desirable. Since then, Pàulo has been working on a recipe for Lean Inceptions, which is shared on this book.
