While many people have a copy of Eric Ries’s book, The Lean Startup, very few seem to be fully applying the ideas.
This hands on workshop is based on learnings from mentoring and hosting all five Lean Startup Machine events in Toronto (a weekend conference to bootstrap Lean Startup into participants).
We’ve discovered that most people who implement Lean Startup principles don’t go lean enough. Come to the workshop and get a taste of what you’re missing. You’ll learn what it really means to get lean.
This session is an intense session. Participants will be very active and involved the entire time. They will also be getting out of the building (conference room) and talking to potential customers to learn as much as they can in as short a period of time as possible.
We’ll be using a stripped down board that walks people through the validation process quickly and easily. There will be about a 10-15 minute set up and then teams will form and get to work using our prepared starting point and validating using our diet lean startup validation board.
