  • But crafting effective experiments is hard.
  • START
  • CEILING OF ACHIEVEMENT 1 START 1. Disappointment !
  • CEILING OF ACHIEVEMENT 1 2 START 1. Disappointment ! 2. Resignation
  • CEILING OF ACHIEVEMENT 1 2 3 START 1. Disappointment ! 2. Resignation 3. Pivot !
  • A pivot not grounded in learning is a disguised “see what sticks” strategy.
  • CEILING OF ACHIEVEMENT 1 4 2 3 START 1. Disappointment ! 2. Resignation 3. Pivot ! 4. The cycle repeats
  • Demystify the art from the science.

  • Life’s too short to build something nobody wants.
  • “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you are doing.” ! - Edward Deming
  • Epiphany 1: Your business model is the product.
  • Document your Plan A
  • Document your Plan A Identify the riskiest parts of your plan

  • The Customer Factory
  • Happy customers get you paid and doing this repeatedly and efficiently is the goal of every business.
  • t? a h w o S The Customer Factory
  • Lean Thinking: ! Continuous improvement through elimination of waste in the customer value stream.
  • “Organizations live or die as systems not as processes.” ! - Goldratt, The Goal
  • Theory of Constraints: ! Every business is a system of interconnected processes with a single constraint.
  • Lean tells you what and how to improve. TOC tells you where to improve.
  • Right Action, Right Time: ! At any given point, there are only a few key actions that matter. ! Focus on those and ignore the rest.
  • The most important thing scientists do. (Hint: It’s not running experiments)
  • First and foremost, scientists build models.
  • First and foremost, scientists build models. They then run experiments to validate those models.
  • Entrepreneurs need models too.
  • Entrepreneurs need models too. (This idea isn’t without resistance)
  • Objection 1: Business planning is a waste of time.

Segments Can’t be easily ! copied or bought Single, clear, compelling message that states why you are different and worth paying Channels attention Target customers ! Path to customers Cost Structure ! Revenue Streams !

  • Experiment like a scientist
  • What is an Experiment?
  • 01 Experiments aren’t standalone but additive.
  • 02 Expected outcomes need to be declared upfront.
  • “If you simply plan on seeing what happens, you will always succeed at seeing what happens.” ! - Eric Ries, The Lean Startup
  • Reasonably smart people can rationalize anything but entrepreneurs are especially gifted at this.
  • ! 1. They hate to be proven wrong. !
  • ! 1. They hate to be proven wrong. ! 2. They don’t have enough information to make these predictions.
  • 03 Expected outcomes need to be falsifiable.
  • Too Vague: Being known as an “expert” will drive early adopters !
  • Too Vague: Being known as an “expert” will drive early adopters ! Specific and Testable: Blog post will drive >100 early sign-ups
  • Falsifiable Hypothesis Specific Repeatable Action will drive Expected Measurable Outcome ! ! e.g. Blog post will drive >100 early sign-ups
  • 04 Experiments need to be time-boxed.
  • 05 Breakthrough insights are usually hidden within failed experiments.
  • A pivot not grounded in learning is a disguised “see what sticks” strategy.
  • “There is no such thing as a failed experiment- only unexpected outcomes. ” ! - Buckminster Fuller
