Getting Lean: Product & UX Style with Melissa Perri

We are back at Brooklyn's own 3rd Ward this month for an insightful talk on Lean UX with Melissa Perri !


Description: Using lean methodology to run your product and UX teams can save you money, time, and help you build the right product. At this event, I'll share my experiences doing lean product management and design. We'll cover how to test new feature ideas and I'll provide some essential tools to help you do so. We'll also talk about quick, cheap ways to make MVPs that require little or no code, and what pieces of information you should track when making decisions.
