Lean UX combines the Lean Principles of “rapid experimentation” and “evidence-based decision making,” with systems thinking and an agile approach to development. As in Lean development, Lean UX emphasizes supporting the user experience, achieving a “minimum viable product” (MVP), and sharing the MVP while collecting feedback and making rapid revisions. Lean UX adds a critical component to the genre. Authors Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden, who are design experts, present their information clearly and cleanly, though they do seem to figure that readers already have a grounding in Lean and Agile development. Thus, getAbstract recommends this fluff-free and practical guide to designers, developers, program managers and project managers.
