Mantras of startups: "fail fast", "move fast and break things", "keep shipping" - these are all great slogans, but unknown to many - these are really all about learning. It's about getting things in front of your customers early, and often. Watching - and learning. Finding what ideas were not quite as brilliant as you once thought - and finding this out as fast and cheap as possible.
How are modern product teams making this happen? Where does User Experience and customer research fit in this model? Taking from Agile, Lean, and User Centered Design - this talk will go over the build-measure-learn process, and how you can start to shape your organization to move fast, without leaving your customers behind.
