Wouter van Essen

"The most important thing we expected to get from Rapid Learning Cycles is that it offers a system, a framework for the Lean product development practices that we were already pursuing.

So now, instead of saying "you have to do LAMDA", "you have to do Test to Fail", "you have to do Set-Based Concurrent Engineering" — we could make it much more simple and say "you have to do Rapid Learning Cycles", because Rapid Learning Cycles is a natural home for all those practices."
