M is for MVP (or is it?) - Clem Pickering - Infinity Works
Clem Pickering of Infinity Works discusses how an MVP is not exactly MVP and how we should change the definition to establishing regular, iterative delivery.
MVP - minimum viable product - just enough features to make the client satisfied.
M - maximum not minimum, clients insist everything is minimum
M - marketable - generally suggests that it would need extra polish, extra features to make sure it is marketable
V - immoVable - (M is for Must!) - MVP is commitment, once it is there, it is fixed
M is for Must (oScoW) - the idea is - must, should, could, won’t.
P - is for permanent - once the feature is there - it is never coming out!
Ideally you should move towards:
M - multiple, M - is for Monthly - when you come from once a year, once a month release cycle is a good change.
V - valuable
P - experiment
Challenge the concept of MVP - focus instead on establishing regular, iterative delivery, take the tube not the release train.
