Lean methodology sfd szeged 2011


Published on

In this presentation I want to share with you the aha moment I got when I first read about customer development, lean startups and business model generation. I'll explain each of these concepts, how we started applying them at Pronovix and put them into a broader Drupal ecosystem context and why any project you run should be driven by validated customer demand.
