Of all the misunderstood and abused terms in the Lean/Agile dictionary, MVP is right on top of the list.

MVPs are a great way to structure your learning around your products, but what it was come to mean is “the crappiest thing we can get away with”.

In this session we go over:

• Why it is a bad idea to release a MVP based on the least amount of effort.

• Why we need real MVPs

• Some examples of MVPs

• What needs to change to run real MVPs

This is a conference talk that I (Erwin van der Koogh) have given in Perth and Sydney, but was asked by people if I could give it in Melbourne.
