Evolution of Lean Startup principles or Demolishing one sacred cow after another

Posted on: June 29, 2010

No surprise that ideas change with the time. The same is happening to Lean Startup concept in IT.

In the times of first Agile Manifesto we have valued:

–         Individuals and interactions OVER processes and tools,

–          Working software OVER comprehensive documentation,

–          Customer collaboration OVER contract negotiation,

–          Responding to change OVER following a plan.

Now that’s not enough. Look, this is a new concept for operating in today’s environment:

–          Team vision and discipline OVER individuals and interactions,

–          Validated learning OVER working software,

–          Customer discovery OVER customer collaboration,

–          Initiating change OVER responding to change.

Do you already adhere to these new principles?

Will be interesting to hear your experience here.
