Lean Startup is a concept coined (and trademarked) by Eric Ries. Ries writes that lean startups are born out of the following three trends:
- use of free and open source software,
- application of agile software development methods, and
- ferocious customer-centric rapid iteration, as exemplified by Steve Blank’s Customer Development process.
Lean Startup initially advocates the creation of rapid prototypes designed to test market assumptions, and uses customer feedback to evolve them much faster than via more traditional software engineering practices, such as the Waterfall model. It is not uncommon to see Lean Startups release new code to production multiple times a day, often using a practice known as Continuous Deployment.
