)-- Agile Business Creation (ABC) is a different approach to planning a business. Based upon the iterative planning techniques developed in the software Industry ABC is designed to aid a start-up to begin to deliver value to their customers, while developing and refining the product/service or offering along the way. This is not just a lightweight version of typical planning it is a completely different mind set.
Most planning tries to reduce risk of failure by structuring and planning as much as possible. Agile was developed for dealing with situations where change is the norm. To remove change in these situations would result in more risk, not less.
For example if you have a great business idea plan it all out, do lots of market research and invest a lot of money developing it and then launch with great expectations and the market rejects your product. In this case your risk was actually increased by trying to plan it all out and launch in one fell swoop.
Agile uses short development cycles and multiple little releases to reduce risk and ensure success. To learn more go to www.AgileBusinessCreation.com and look through their free materials or sign up for the free eCourse.
