Lean MBA - Runway SF Lean MBA - Runway SF Presentation Transcript

  • The Lean MBA September 2013
  • Intro to Neo Neo is a global product innovation company. We create compelling mobile and Web products for our clients, with a focus on creating customer value and business success. Our clients include large enterprises, startups, and governments. Founded by Joi Ito (director of the MIT Media Lab) and Ian McFarland (ex-CTO of Pivotal Labs) we count Eric Ries (author of “The Lean Startup”) among our partners. We are dedicated to Lean Startup rigor and the close collaboration of business, technology and design. 2 Lean Innovation Our team of thought leaders has literally written the manuals for lean startup, lean UX and lean product management. At Neo, we put these ideas into practice every day. We obsess about value creation, as well as shipping great code. We treat our clients' products like our own. Agile Development We make great software, with deep expertise in Ruby on Rails and iOS development. We've been doing agile for years, and continue to lead the field. With Neo, you get the best industry talent, the very highest code quality, and unparalleled excellence in software strategy, scalability, and sustainability. Education We want to help you become successful, and part of that is teaching best practices. In our lean and agile projects, we often apprentice client staff. We also run focused workshops for our clients, run conferences on technology and design, and support the community through open source software and organizing meetups.
