Lean UX is a technique used when working on projects where the Agile development method is used.
When development is rapid, there's not enough time to use traditional UX techniques. Fundamentally, all forms of UX aim to deliver a great user experience, but a Lean UX differs in the way you work on a project. It is less focused on deliverables and requires a greater level of collaboration within the team.
Lean UX isn't focused on detailed deliverables. Instead, it is focused on producing changes that improve the product in the present. In practice, you are replacing "requirements" with a "problem statement", leading to a set of assumptions that can result in a hypothesis. Assumptions are generated on a workshop basis.
It is understood that assumptions may not be correct and can change as better understanding develops. The team will prioritise assumptions by the risk they represent—the more severe the consequence, the higher the priority.
The hypotheses created in Lean UX are designed to test our assumptions.
A simple format to create your own hypotheses.
"We believe that [......] is essential for [.....]. This will achieve [....]. We will have demonstrated this when we can measure [.....]
The MVP is building the most basic version of the concept and testing it.
The MVPs which show promise can be incorporated into further design and development rounds. This can maximise your resources as it allows for experimentation without "sacred cows."
User research and testing are based on the same principles as traditional UX. But the approach is often "quick and dirty" as the results need to be delivered before the next Agile Sprint.
This means less focus on meticulously documented outputs and more focus on raw data. Responsibilities for research is also more widely spread across the team.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
