MVP...You Keep Using That Word


MVP... You keep using that word, but I don't think it means what you think it does.

Erwin van der Koogh is a recognised expert and thought leader in Agile & Lean Transformation. In town as a presenter at Agile Australia, Erwin has agreed to talk on a trending acronym: MVP (or Minimum Viable Product).

Of all the words in Lean & Agile that are misused and abused, MVP is right on top of the list. For some reason, it has come to mean: “The crappiest thing we can get away with”. As Agile BAs and Product Owners, appropriate use of and understanding of the MVP becomes an integral component of our job.

In this talk we will go over:

• Why that is such a bad thing

• What a real MVP is

• Some examples of MVPs
