Simple is Hard

The Lean Startup: a Disciplined Approach to Imagining, Designing, and Building New Products
Eric Ries (Lessons Learned)
High-tech product development projects are notoriously difficult to manage. Many fail outright. Even when the product work as specified, far too often there are no customers willing to purchase it. All of these problems share a common cause: the tremendous waste inherent in an undisciplined approach to imagining, designing, and building new products.
