The myth goes that the more perseverance, brilliance, good timing and a good product, the higher the chance for success. I will show you why exactly the opposite is true: Survival and, even more so, success are highly correlated with the successful application of the “Build-Measure-Learn Feedback Loop”. The fact that this lean framework can be learned and taught is the final kill of the myth. I will give examples of how you can deliver more business value earlier and with less risks by testing everything as soon as possible using a so-called Minimum Viable Product.

If Lean Startup is changing our approach to creating new companies and products, then new tools are needed to help us understand what are customers really want. The workshop will introduce to you to one such tool. The Lean Canvas. By brainstorming on few simple questions, you quickly identify what problem you are trying to solve, who you are solving for, and whether there is a business case for it.
In this workshop, you will learn to create a Lean Canvas by applying to your own situation, so you can see more clearly what your customers and users need from you.
