Experiments (what are MVPs?)

I recently gave a talk to LUXr New York about MVPs, or really about running experiments. Instead of using the term “MVP”, I find myself using the word experiment for a few different reasons: less jargon; a clearer connotation of lightweight, learning, and not necessarily tied to digital product, and a clearer signal that this is about bringing the scientific method to startups as a balancing force to vision and judgement, and not just a 1.0 release.

Here are the slides from that talk (I don’t have the video of the talk, sorry):

    Thanks for posting, Giff. and thanks for emphasizing ‘experiments’ over MVP!

    That’s exactly what we teach at LSM. MVP = Experiment.n

    LSM is one of the best ways to learn how to flex these muscles 🙂
