Minimum viable process-practice-platform-product

Learning Alliances

Sean Murphy and I are continuing to explore the process whereby entrepreneurs and innovators figure out what the minimum viable P (process or practice or platform or product) could be. The idea is that the viable P enables further development and learning. Without a viable P (that’s fully social) we have blind spots that are insurmountable. So that first step is really important.
