Making-of stories on the horizon

10/30/2014

Hello Minimum Viable Book followers, it’s me Amy, checking in to tell you what we’ve been up to over the past few months.

While we’ve had our heads tucked into all kinds of weird and wonderful interviews, we realise we’ve left you all patiently waiting in the dark, sorry about that. To make it up to you, we’ll be writing a series of blog posts to bring you up to speed with the making of the Minimum Viable Book.

Here are some of the ‘making-of’ stories we’ll be covering in the coming weeks:

The alpha release
We had an overwhelming response and some really useful feedback on the alpha content. We’ll share some stats and some decisions.

Interviews interviews interviews
When we set-off down the path of running 4 workshops in 4 locations around the world, we weren’t expecting the random wacky interviews we squeezed in around the edges that really delivered the gold. We evolved our questions as we went, so we’ll tell you all about that.

Minimum Viable Book Tuesdays, Trello and Google Drive
We fit our Minimum Viable Book activities around full time jobs, weddings, start-ups and life so we need to be extremely organised and aligned on our approach to Minimum Viable Book content and interview scheduling!

Re-setting our target to February, visiting Bristol and Australia
Because content! Over the next few months, we’ll be targeting a few key interviews and wrapping up our content for a beta release (which will be available in a printed newspaper format). We’ll also be visiting our friends in Bristol to surface some of the stories that came up during our workshop last year. Amy will also be heading to Australia to chat to a few cool people who reached out over the interwebs.

Stay tuned MVBers.

Amy and Emily
