Build, Measure & Learn
Contrary to what the name suggests, the Lean startup method is not only intended for startups but also for established companies with a need for innovation and the desire to be able to quickly respond to changes.
Because why would you spend half a year or longer on developing amazing software that ultimately nobody wants to use?
Validated learning through the Build-Measure-Learn loop can prevent this.
This starts with the launch of a Minimum Viable product (MVP), that is: A first version of the app or software service based on certain assumptions.
After measuring how the app is used, one can learn whether a certain assumption is true or not.
By continuously repeating this process, the relevance and value of the realized applications can be significantly increased. The waste of time and labour can be greatly reduced. In the end, both your organization and your end users profit from this.
