  21. What Worked! •  Discipline –  “The 4 steps to the Epiphany” cookbook –  Interview script focused on hypotheses validation •  Dedicated resources –  Non-entrepreneurial resources –  No borrowing of existing development resources •  Product-Market fit –  3 customer testimonials on launch day •  Earlyvangelists –  Few right ones more important than many
  22. Ah Ha Moment! “Dropping releases that require configuration changes in our production environment is not an acceptable way for releases to hit our enterprise working environment. ”
  23. Earlyvangelist Detector! •  Low availability •  Assigned to participate by manager •  Focus on usability and performance instead of suitability •  Need constant hand-holding to use MVP NOT AN EARLYVANGELIST
