What is a Minimum Viable Product? How does it relate to and impact UX practice? And what are some strategies we can apply in designing them. MVPs are, in my view, core to an effective Agile/Lean UX practice, and in this talk I offer an introduction to what an MVP is and provide some strategies for how to go about designing an effective MVP. I gave this talk at IA Konferenz 2013 in Berlin. It's an updated version of a talk I gave at Hackers & Founders in Barcelona in 2012.
