Contact with customers changes your business
Classic Product Design Process
The Lean Approach
What is a Startup?
Business Model Canvas
A startup is a human institution designed to deliver a new product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
But what if you simply go direct to the customer with your idea?
Minimum Viable Product
Bare bones prototype
Purpose is to find the absolute minimum product that generates $$
How do we CURRENTLY think about starting companies?
Classic Business Plan
The reality is that NO business plan has ever survived the first contact with a customer
Or you focus on TECHNOLOGY
Where you build the absolute best technology money can buy
Until it works absolutely perfectly
and absolutely NO ONE wants what you've developed
Iterate and Deliver
Get outside the building!
1945 - 2013
"The plan was willing but the model was weak."
Find the balance between feedback and "wag the dog"
The Problem with Pivots
Pivoting requires insight.
Insight requires knowledge.
Knowledge requires measuring.
Measuring requires testing.
The "right" testing measures actionable metrics not vanity metrics
Beware the vanity metric. I'm pretty and make you happy, but there's no cause-effect with your efforts.
Must test changes carefully to see effects.
