    The whole startup world has become inspired by the idea of building Minimum Viable Products (MVPs) after Eric Ries popularised it back in 2008. It has become a trendy word in the tech world gradually turning into a misleading concept.

    As a result, we have companies that are not willing to use the MVP approach as they don’t 100% understand it, experts who state the concept is wrong and clients who often get hot under the collar after the suggestion to try out a minimum viable product.

    Сonsidering the fact that MVP remains one of the most important components when creating software, it would be unreasonable to drop it just because some people misuse the concept.

    Let’s talk about why this lean tool becomes confusing, what mistakes you should avoid and, more to the point, what is the right way to build an MVP.
