Move fast and break things.-- Mark Zuckerberg

Mobile is no longer a hobby for companies. In that world, speed is the key. My company embraced the principle of welcoming changing requirements, even late in development. It allowed us to grow, and we have accomplished some amazing things.

It's also caused some challenges for teams. They felt the pain of this pace, and our clients were frustrated by delayed releases.
