When to use The Lean Inception template?

As a product leader or facilitator, you want to align the different perspectives – business, User eXperience and technical – to achieve best product development possible right now.The Lean Inception workshop is highly recommended in two main circumstances.

  1. Large projects find a lean inception valuable to start quickly and be oriented to work in a lean style. Such a start builds early iterations designed to discover and test what features are truly valued by their users.

  2. Smaller organizations (such as startups) use lean inceptions to take an idea that's been tested by some pre-software MVPs and evolve it into a software product.

This workshop is specifically about understanding an MVP, it doesn't substitute for ideation sessions, customer research, architectural review, or competitive analysis. It's one specific technique that's part of understanding what it takes to build a successful product.
