Agile, Scrum, and The Lean Startup

by Colin Warwick

I’m learning about agile and scrum this week. My friends Karen Rubin and Josh Payne at HubSpot recommend The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses, a book by Eric Ries. It’s not specifically about agile or scrum but it does present a good case for setting out a description of a minimum viable product and building that first to test the vision and hypothesis.

Scrum’s a good tool to do that so I’m experimenting with the free hosted version of ScrumDo. is a freemium model. The open source part of the project lives at a sister site where you can download and self-host the software.
