Agile for Social Good - How I built my Forbes 30 product company to scale social impact!
Abrar Hashmi Arad Malhotra

Large organizations and enterprises always talk about "operating in a lean-startup" like fashion. Do you ever wonder how does a lean-startup operate? What does it take to make a lean start up successful? How do we bring Lean-Agile principles to build a customer-centric product to wow customers? Where do you start when you don't have funding for our idea? A lean-startup operates with a well-defined vision, is built with high-performing teams and is able to inspect and adapt. Our journey started with leadership alignment to providing autonomy and purpose to our teams. It allowed us to release our Minimum Viable Product and get customer feedback and create a culture of trust and innovation. If you have ever wanted to learn how Agile enables the Lean-Startup culture, focus on building high performing teams. Experience Report
