Today's article is complicated. What are the differences between Lean, Agile and Design Thinking? Phew ...
Following the popularization of these terms, of a book entitled Lean Vs. Agile Vs. Design Thinking: What You Really Need to Know to BuildBy Jeff Gothelf published in 2017 and the emergence of the use of these techniques in several television series, many people ask me about them. What is the difference between Lean, Agile and Design Thinking? Well, the techniques are different in nature and objective. Let's see ... I start so easy ...
Design Thinking It is the way in which we explore topics or find problems that need to be solved.
Lean It is a way to manage a company while it is a framework that will help us get the desired results and that Agile part.
Agile It is how we adapt to the changing conditions of something. Apply it to agile sales (Agile sales) and agile thinking (Agile thoughts) among other terms. It used to design solutions. The agile sales I explain them in class when I explain how to create a minimum viable product and test it in the market through landing pages and you campaigns on Facebook / Instagram.
Agile It is also related terms scrum, iteration, and burn down charts Do you sound these words? This is what you see in the series in which they appear programmers who write in post-its colors everything to do and go past the post-its from one part to another of a mural as they programming these parts. a big problem breaks into small tasks and are performing these tasks until it ends and one faces the following problem.
There is confusion between terms because agile part leanBut also a way agile of running a company is applying in respect of lean start-up. Agile tests the product with users ( agile sales I mentioned earlier) and the concept of Lean Start-up test is based on a prototype of the product by putting on the market to be tested. The concepts are almost the same, hence ... sometimes you're not sure which one to use.
Not if I have helped to clarify the terms or have gotten worse ... sorry. The image that illustrate this article and that is John Scheider It might help you more.
