Gone are the days where we can “throw things over the wall” to our customers.   Agile methods (Scrum, XP, Kanban, etc) have a growing intersection with the Lean Startup movement that is creating great excitement.  Lean Startup techniques are helping agile practitioners “get out the building” and perform customer development. Lean+Agile DC 2016 is a space to share solutions at the exciting intersection of Agile and Lean Startup methods.
