A Lean UX Design Process

Lean UX is a proven approach for lean startup environment. My lean UX process is based on a commonly 6 step cycle ux process. In my practice with a few startups, I found it worked better for me to split the first step “concept” into 2 steps: discovery and wireframe. Thus my process is 7 steps – discovery, Wireframe, prototype, validate internally, test externally, summarize, iterate.
