Agile Product Development

Traditional "management", even most software product management, is Industrial-Age Command-and-Control thinking that is net-negative for managing creatives. We need re-framing of Agile Software Development with a business-creating software Product Development mindset. Rapidly Iterative based on FeedBack. Part of Strategic Agility. A bit post-Lean-Startup. This is my Product Development Process.

I sometimes frame this as Flow-based Product Development.


compare to Agile Manifesto?

inspired mainly by
