Startups. 4 people in a room changing the world. Fluid, optimised, responding dynamically to changes in the product based on detailed customer data to drive value and build their proposition. No bureaucracy, no waste just beauty.

Agile. 10 people in a room fighting an organisation. A system, bloated, ridged and wasteful. Challenging a business to change its perspective on product development and deliver amazing products.

While it sounds like Cinderella and the ugly sister both have lessons to learn from one another. Principles are as important and useful in established companies as they are in the startup world. Lean Startup isn't just about how we can create an amazing product - its about how we can learn from the results of our efforts to improve everything we do. Agile is an iterative, incremental approach to software development. Lean is a customer focus value creation process.

They are all ultimately searching for an answer to the question 'How can we learn more quickly what works, and discard what doesn't?

This presentation reviews all approaches to seek to leverage all disciplines to the achieve the ultimate outcome.
