A few years ago, practicing 'Lean Startup' could be a lonely place to inhabit. We were first introduced to Lean Startup at SXSW 2010 and it gave the necessary structure to our experiments in combining Agile Development and Design Thinking. When MxM started using LS techniques it was still a small community. This included Salim Virani with LeanCamp, who was and is one of the smartest thinkers in product and as much as anyone for the Lean community in London. And around that time Jeff Gothelf gave what is, in my opinion, the best distillation of thinking in Lean applied to the design process with his presentation "Getting out of the Deliverables Business". These people, along with many others, have made an exciting time to learn and practice in this industry. In the last 4 years the art of product development has taken massive steps forward and changed government, businesses and charities. We would now love to take some time to talk about the great Lean Startup stories coming out of London.
