A lot of times in the agile world we hear about MVP – Minimum Viable Product. What this means is you perform the smallest a amount of work to get the base level of the product out the door. The idea is get something usable out and then build on that.

This is what we are doing with this site. We could have spent months crafting the site. We could have gone through a full waterfall process of requirements, design, tons of review and late delivery. Or we could have hired someone to build us the most beautiful website ever.

We could have done any of these, but we would have lost value, time, and control.

Instead, we’re working in an agile way – bringing together a small team to incrementally build a site that adds value to the membership of the KWSQA.

With our new platform, there are tons of opportunities to better serve the membership of the KWSQA. Our initial MVP may not be as beautiful as we would like, but it’s functional.

We hope you like the changes – please check back often to see the updates.
