I started writing some software for myself to use to manage my customer development process. I realized there might be a larger market for this software, so decided to start putting it through its down customer development.

The survey should only take a couple of minutes to complete.

3. Do you practice Customer Development (aka Lean Startup) methodologies?

4. If you do not practice Customer Development, why not?

5. If you practice Customer Development, how do you track your hypotheses and measurements? These choices are not mutually exclusive (for instance, you might use spreadsheets with Dropbox).
