Lean Startup is a methodology that focuses on validating your customer demand before going too far down the path of development of your products and services. In this half-day or full-day workshop you’ll learn what Lean Startup is, how to design your experiments in order to build your MVP (minimum viable product) and how to validate demand.
I offer this workshop at Universities and Colleges as well as organizations who don’t consider themselves a startup.

Course Details – Half Day
During this half-day session, participants will be introduced to the concept and terminology of Lean Startup. I will share stories, metrics and outcomes of previous Lean Startup experiences in startup environments as well as non-startup environments. Lean Startup isn’t just for software either, I will share stories of using Lean Startup in non-software situations as well, including using Lean startup for organizational change and for any business vertical.
