One of the newest phenomenons in the marketing world is stemmed from the startup scene – The Lean Startup. Back in 2011, Eric Ries, who happens to be a Silicon Valley entrepreneur and a trusted thought leader in the field of technology and the startup boom, argues that the best method of building a successful startup is through an iterative process, called an “agile process.” The premise of this development model is rooted in having a simple and dirty prototype to put out in the market, to test. This basic prototype, called “the minimum viable product” goes through numerous development cycles that are tried and tested by real users. Consumers, known as users in the technology world, provide live feedback through their interactions and data. And through this process of testing, iterating, modifying, pivoting and so on and so forth, emerges a perfect product. This continuous process of “build-measure-learn” is an infinite loop.
