We are going to take a novel approach to introducing 2 concepts you should have familiarity with: agile and lean.
First we are not the founders of either concept or as integrated together as our series indicates - agilean.
Second this is not a theoretical conversation. These are tools we have used for decades, perhaps not to its full potential, but used just the same. Since we started building this startup (IBGR.Network) in front of you, we filled in the missing pieces and in the process raised our level of play.
I'll start at our beginning, the blending of two concepts used for years for product development.
The tao is to understand the essence of something; at its core what must this product or service accomplish?
The zen is once the essence or core is understood, what is the simplest and most robust solution; whether it is designing the development process or the final product / service.
It is the design philosophy of taozen that led to our conversion to agilean.
