Summary

We hope you're getting the idea. Inside almost every large program there are lots of little programs trying to get out. You might have to do a little extra work around the edges to get these pieces useful on their own, but it can be well worth your while. You'll learn lots more, and you will actually be delivering value. Would that be cool, or what?

Therefore, put all your thoughts behind this simple idea: release little bits, to be used by real customers, very frequently. It will enable you to deliver the most value in the shortest time, with great confidence and low stress. We also think it will grow new hair on your head and help you lose weight, but we're not sure about those two. The rest—we're sure.
