Prescribe it

Pair programming, scrum meetings, and other activities are useful only when the team thinks so, not because a process prescribes it.

Interesting

The book covers just about every aspect you need to think about, provides a range of ideas and approaches but never preaches or dictates. Every team and situation is different and requires it own solution.

Excellent and practical guide

There were amazing very helpful ideas for the early entrepreneur such as Validated Learning & Pivot and Preserve that could help the company to divert from failures & loss of opportunities due to mistakes or wrong policy implementation.

I discovered this book extremely magnificent

He says a lot of the questions I had and even question I did not consider of but should have been asking. It is only a matter of time before the lean startup method is universally used.

Lean Software Development

The genuine thing about this book is that you don't need business knowledge to understand the core theories. The principles he talks about can be applied to all types of business but are especially valuable for software and tech products
