Last Wednesday 10th of June VAIRIX was on Universidad ORT Uruguay showing it's Inception Workshop for Entrepreneurs. The presentation was cool, with lot of questions from the atendees. Also we did one full activity, sharing the results and discussing them between the participants.


MVP means Minimum Viable Product and it’s a core component of Lean Startup methodology [1]. An MVP is not a minimal product [2]. The technique involves the development of a product or website with the sufficient features to satisfy early adopters.This subset of possible customers are thought to be more forgiving, more likely to give feedback, and able to grasp a product vision from an early prototype or marketing information [3].

According to the literature and the opinion of many experienced authors, this sprint length is the ideal [1]. Now, what happens to this team if the client, for reasonable business causes, slow down the rhythm of story generation? What happens with this team if they find themselves without the number of stories needed to fill the next sprint? What if this team decided to start the next sprint anyway and, once the client start again to write down stories, add them to the current sprint backlog?
