Running Lean Workshop by Ash Maurya

10/9/2012 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Learn How-to Vet New Product Ideas and Raise Your Odds of Success

Kauffman Labs invites you to attend our upcoming workshop - Running Lean presented by Ash Maurya, author of Running Lean and founder of Spark59.

Workshop Overview

Most products fail. Not because they fail to launch what they set out to build, but because they waste time, money, and effort building the wrong product.

At this 1-day hands-on workshop, you'll learn a systematic methodology that raises your odds of buiding successful products.

Running Lean was developed through rigorous testing of Lean Startup, Customer Development, and Bootstrapping techniques, and has been successfully applied to dozens of products ranging from b2c, enterprise, clean tech, and no tech products.

What you'll learn

* How do I find problems worth solving?

* How do I document my business model?

* How do I find early customers and get them to want to pay?

* How do I systematically test my business model?

* How do I build and measure what customers want?

NOTE: For those of you already familiar with Running Lean, this workshop introduces lots of new content that goes way beyond the concepts and tactics described in the book such as how to run effective run experiments using the Lean Stack (Lean Canvas 2.0), how to get strong commitments from early adopters, unconventional ways for designing your MVP, and more. All illustrated with brand new case-studies.

Who should attend

Anyone involved with bringing new products to market will benefit from this workshop:

* Entrepreneurs

* Intrapreneurs

* Innovators
