Transformation from MVP(Minimum Viable Product) to a MVC(Most Lovable cyce)

This is the case study of a team of enthusiastic agilists, who dared to think that they can when the customer himself was doubtful on the feasibility of the project.

In fact, our company won the deal due to the team’s quick action in building a “Proof of Concept” within 2 days to prove to the customer that the idea can be realized.

The customer had the goal of building a Decision support system for their Sales cycle : To build a system that increases data transparency resulting in an increase in RoI by 20%. The details of the requirements where not clear in the mind of the customer. This is a success story of a team which helped the customer in evolution of their requirements and realizing this application which is now being used in 140+ countries and helped the customer save $10 million in their budgeted cost and also support 84,663 partners across the globe! The team will share the best practices they used in forming a high performing and self-organizing team along with the Delivery pipeline visualization principles which helped them achieve this feat which resulted in thundering accolades from customer and great appreciation!

    Dear Tathagat,

    Thank you for considering my topic interesting. I wanted to initially elaborate on the concept of Most Valuable Cycle and its contrast to MVP and how it helped us for 15 mins. If you feel there is a time constraint, I can definitely shrink that part  and stick to the case study with distinct metrics to demonstrate the concept.

    Athresh, the idea sounds interesting. I like case studies that can demonstrate in hard metrics how an improvement was brought about. However, 45 min is a lot for a case study. Can you squeeze it in 20 min?
