When is the task supposed to be done?”

Why Processes Are Vital to Scaling a Business with Rich Wong, General Partner at Accel
“I think this kind of philosophy of adopting the ‘lean startup’ or ‘lean product development’ methodology, and then applying that to process in this bite-sized, iterative improvement way while gathering data & using processes in real-time, getting real feedback is a big shift that we’ve seen, and it’s something that we recommend a lot of our customers do.
We call it ‘lean process management’.”
