In today's world of open source, cheap computing power and API's, it's not if you can build it, but should you build it. The #1 startup killer is running out of time to "figure it out" before you get traction. Lean product development is the methodology that allowed companies like; PayPal, Yelp and Aardvark to pivot into their market to become a dominate player. There is a science behind the approach.

-customer development
-feature prioritization
-split testing
-product metrics
