Fundamentals of Lean Start-Up and How it Works in Large or Small Enterprises

Tue, July 14, 2015

12:00 pm EDT  |  11:00 am CDT  |  10:00 am MDT  |  9:00 am PDT


Seminar Description:

Agile is a way of working that is based on core value and principles. From those core values and principles, practices are developed. Most people know Agile from specific practices like daily stand up, story points, user stories, etc, but the foundation of Agile is its fundamental values and principles. Because of this Agile is very extendable, meaning new flavors of Agile can be developed as well as new practices.

One of those new flavors of Agile is the Lean Start-up. Lean Start-Up or LSU, is a flavor of agile dealing with Product Development and Launch. It can tie in marketing / sales, but at its core, it is a way of enabling your organization to test early and often and from there use what you learned to successful scale new products with much less long term risk.

Even though "Start-up" is in the name of this flavor of Agile, it isn't just for small organizations or entrepreneur based organizations. One of the big trends for large enterprise organizations is the concept of Intre-preneurship. Which is basically incubating new products using entrepreneur tactics while working in a larger organization. The same can be done with Lean Start-up.

In this presentation we will look at what Lean Start-Up is and techniques used to successfully take advantage of its practices and activities. From that point, we will look at some practical real-world examples of how Lean Start-up can be executed within any organization type. With real-world examples, this seminar will explain the theory of Lean Start-up, how it can be executed to significantly reduce the risks involved in new product development, and how it allows the market to help you make decisions over trying to plan where you think the market will end up.
