Being Agile in Your Pop Up Business Planning

By Dan Thompson

Part of Pop Up Business For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Pop ups are fast, furious, flexible and fun. Planning is essential to success, but plans for pop up businesses are living, working documents, not set in stone. Aim to use agile methods (an idea taken from a type of software development), and make sure that you:

  • Aim to be up and running as early as possible.

  • Welcome change.

  • Get your team to work together daily throughout the project.

  • Build your pop up around motivated individuals.

  • Trust people to get the job done.

  • Measure progress in actions, not words.

  • Reflect on how to be better, and tune and adjust regularly.
