Agile software developers often rely on a concept called minimum viable product (MVP) to get a piece of working software in a customer’s hands as quickly as possible, so they can start to use it and provide feedback. Nic Brisbourne, the Managing Partner at London VC firm Forward Partners, writes,

We spend far too long polishing and perfecting unproven solutions. These days a minimum level of quality and design is required before people will take notice of a new solution, but understand what that is and ship as soon as you’ve reached it. If you find yourself believing that your product will only work if it’s fully featured and highly polished you should go back and double check whether your core proposition is strong enough.
