About book Lean UX: Applying Lean Principles To Improve User Experience (2013)

I read this for our UX book club at work.Overall, I think there were some practical ideas for opening up the design process and making sure your whole team is involved and engaged. I like some of the advice. I thought it was written more for beginners to UX and/or Lean/Agile methods. I found some themes in the book incomplete. One of the opening sentences is that "Phase 2" of a product is a myth - yet throughout the book he encourages developing an "MVP" (minimum viable product) and keeping "parking lots" for good ideas that don't make it into the first version. It seems like this book, and other UX books, focus a lot of energy on describing the development of new products or complete overhauls of old dysfunctional products. It would be great if there were more examples and descriptions of the day-to-day, bread and butter, incremental design choices. Pretty disappointed by this text - it feels and read likes a 15 slide powerpoint that got expanded to 80 pages plus pictures.The concepts are unimaginative and not presented with very much grace. The narrating author leaned heavily on his experience at The Ladder, and so almost all of the advice was geared towards large organizations that are trying to make themselves more lean. There was practically nothing for smaller, more nimble companies about how to implement best practices up front - or manage the complexity in even smaller, more diverse teams.Overall, I ended up skimming this book lightly and maybe got one or two good ideas. Wouldn't recommend except for a very narrow niche of professionals in a very specific professional context.

If you are familiar with Lean Startup concept - this book is useless...

Even a developer can learn a trick or two from this book.

Not a book for beginner especially the last part.
