Lean inception

How to get a brand new software project off on the right foot? A common challenge is that stakeholders may have very different assumptions and expectations about almost all aspects of the project. The earlier they are discovered and resolved the better are the chances of success.


Rapid prototyping

Even great ideas are not perfect. That's why it's better to validate and adjust them early before they go into the expensive production phase. Less is more in rapid software prototyping, you save money by making informed data-driven decisions about your future product.


Minimal Viable Product and beyond

A well designed MVP serves a few purposes at once: it delivers value to your customers from day 1, brings insights to stakeholders and also lays a technical foundation upon which new features and functionality can be added.
