Lean start-up is a business-creation methodology based on validated learning, experimentation, frequent releases – and what you measure and learn along this path.

Lean start-up asks organisations to work with uncertainty, which is unusual and uncomfortable for many. This change in focus requires an organisation to learn and make decisions on the basis of questions asked; customer feedback; and evidence from experiments.  Ideally, outcomes produced should be different – and more beneficial - than more traditional solution delivery methods, because they validate problems.  Innovation is the new competitive currency and lean start-up is the new organisational superpower. Successful lean start-up means building products that people want. Key concepts are product/market fit, minimising waste, failing fast, responding to change, supporting continuous improvement, enabling learning by doing, and delivering more customer value more often.

How can Lean Start-up be applied at an enterprise-level?

In this highly practical, real-world, one-day training course, together you’ll explore how to pragmatically apply lean start-up principles in a large organisation. Many people have read about lean start-up, or tried some of the elements in their workplaces, only to come unstuck because they’re not sure of what to do, when, and how. This course takes you through some of the key steps in getting ready for lean start-up and setting you on your journey.
