Minimum Viable Product is a popular term. The term is widely used among the Agile community. I have introduced a Minimum Viable Project Scope in the last few posts.
So, what is the difference between Minimal Viable Product (MVP) and Minimum Viable Project Scope (MVPS)?
The key difference is within the boundaries (Product Vs Project Scope). MVP is the iterative method of product development. The Development team adds enough features so that the customer can provide feedback.
Whereas (MVPS) is the minimum possible project scope for a meaningful project. So, we define the minimum possible scope to deliver a meaningful project to the customer.
In the MVPS project, we may deliver one or more products. This is where MVP kicks in.
For example, the MVPS for the project is implementing CRM and integrating with existing ERP. So, the two products within the project are CRM implementation and CRM/ERP integration. We iteratively develop and refine these two products by improving the two separate MVPs.
I hope that makes sense!
