Is the MVP dead? And if it isn’t, is it time we killed it off?

Join a thought-provoking and possibly controversial talk as we hear the case for killing off MVPs, and explore what you should use instead.


Following the spirit of Agile Manifesto signatory Dave Thomas’ 2015 talk “Agile is Dead,” Principal Consultant Phill Gillespie will ask whether the notion of the MVP is fit for purpose in 2021.  By rethinking this well-established concept within the broader context of product development, Phill will argue that there are other ways we can innovate and consistently create compelling propositions for customers.


Will it make you question things you thought were sacrosanct? Will you be convinced by the end of the talk? Will there be a lively discussion afterwards? Only one way to find out, join us on Wed 21 July.
