The Lean Startup – Not Just For Startups!

I recently read the book ‘The Lean Startup’ by Eric Ries.  I was really impressed. First of all, it’s not just for startups!  Eric defines a startup as anyone working on new products or services in an environment of extreme uncertainty.  In today’s business world, where we’re living with a volatile economy, the rapid pace of change, consumerisation of IT,

Hi all.  Apologies for this brief commercial interlude.  I am looking for a new sponsor for this site.  The sponsor ad position appears right at the top of every page, alongside my logo.  Currently I’m getting about 50,000 views per month, of course all focused on the subject of agile.   If that’s something you might be interested in for

By Kelly Waters
