Podcast cover

Top product managers must have great customer empathy–but too much of it can slow you down. On the one hand, you need empathy to understand your customers, so that you can build products that solve their problems. On the other hand, too much empathy can prevent you from releasing a product that doesn’t solve all of your customers’ needs at once. Lauren Gilchrist, Product Manager at Pivotal Labs, gives five tips for shipping less-than-perfect MVPs so that you can all learn from end users, fast.

Published on Oct 12, 2015

The Lean Startup methodology has disrupted businesses everywhere. As a result of a more innovative, entrepreneurial-based economy, business leaders have been forced to take a fresh look at growth opportunities and the type of organization they need to build in order to stay competitive. Born out of the startup culture, Lean Startup provides the pathway to business transformation. So, how can businesses of all sizes apply Lean Startup principles to modernize and foster continuous innovation? In this special event, Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup and the Kickstarter-backed Leader’s Guide, sits down with entrepreneur Leslie Bradshaw, Managing Partner of MadebyMany, to discuss next generation leaders, what it really takes to innovate, and how to create a culture that will sustain.

Rank #13: Applying Lean To Marketing And Brand Strategy | Jessica Korthuis

Podcast cover
Read more
We recently hosted a webcast conversation between Jessica Korthuis, Founder and Chief Brand Strategist at SOHUIS, and Elliot Susel, Lean Startup Co. Faculty Member, to discuss how you can incorporate lean into your marketing and brand strategy.

In Jessica and Elliot’s conversation, they discuss:
- What companies should do before making the decision to rebrand.
- Tools and exercises that can help you execute a successful brand strategy.
- How to validate the brand strategy you implemented actually worked.

And much, much more…
Jessica Korthuis started her first company with her husband after her corporate dream job was eliminated. She didn’t have a ton of experience helping entrepreneurs brand themselves but she had a lot of experience in marketing communications and a can-do spirit. “We built this super-crappy website and then poof, we just started our first agency,” Jessica said.

The agency grew organically to include such clients as TED Women, Red Bull and Stanford University, but was completely bootstrapped. “It was this absolutely scrappy thing,” Jessica said.

Through the local business ecosystem in Orlando, Florida she learned about Lean Startup, which is where she got involved in helping entrepreneurs brand themselves using Lean Startup tools.

Jessica admitted that she was naive at that early stage of her business, but that was both a strength and a weakness. On the one hand, she said, it helped not to know how much work was in front of them, but it was also scary. Her biggest takeaway from starting with so little knowledge is that sometimes the best thing to do is to, “Just start.”

Once she was deeper into the process, Jessica saw the value in Lean Startup methods and began to use it, suggesting founders should learn who your early adopters are going to be and determine your minimum viable product (MVP) as early as possible, but “Don’t try to slay the dragon all at once,” she said.

Rank #19: Practicing Lean When You’re Not A Startup | Rahim Adatia

Podcast cover
Read more
Often there is a perception that Lean Startup methods are only for the inception phase of a product. The ‘startup’ part is a bit of a misnomer, it's not meant to be literal. Companies of all sizes can benefit from the principles by adopting a more customer-centric approach and engendering a culture supporting build-measure-learn. On this podcast, we will speak with Rahim Adatia who will share some of his experiences working with both startups and larger organizations to ship products using Lean methodologies.

Rank #20: Lean Product Development And How To Choose The Right Value Proposition | Lars Lofgren

Podcast cover
Read more
We recently hosted a conversation between Lars Lofgren, Senior Director of Growth at I Will Teach You To Be Rich, and Elliot Susel, Faculty Member at Lean Startup Co., about implementing lean product development into your organization and how to choose the right value proposition.

In Lars and Elliot’s conversation, they discuss:
- How Lars moved the company from a rigid waterfall product development process to a more lean approach.
- Why the most important part of the product development process is choosing the right value proposition.
- How to choose the right value proposition through customer interviews, surveys, and AB testing.

And much, much more…
When Lars came on to I Will Teach You To Be Rich, the company was engaged in a waterfall approach to product development where they released a bunch of courses at once and hoped they’d make “a bunch of money,” he said. The process had some hits, but just as many misses, and he knew it was time to make some changes.

As his role shifted from generating new leads to product development, he realized that it was important to drive new products to maintain the growth of the company but the process had to be significantly refined toward a lean approach. “I didn’t throw out the entire process,” he explained, “but I did throw out huge chunks of it. Now I’d say 80% of the cycle is completely different even than a year ago.”
