Starting, building and operating a nonprofit organization is done under conditions of extreme uncertainty, but we plan with confidence. Enormous energy is put into Five Year Strategic Plans, Annual Plans and Quarterly plans, but then real life intrudes and the reality is that there's only the vaguest resemblance between our plans and our actual work. So much wasted time! There's got to be a better way.

Kayvon Khalilzadeh of Lean Startup Vancouver will introduce us to the concept of the lean startup

Lean Startup is a methodology that favours experimentation over elaborate planning, customer feedback over intuition, and iterative design over traditional “big design up front” development. Although the methodology is just a few years old, its concepts—such as “minimum viable product” and “pivoting” have quickly taken root in the start-up world. Now it's time for the nonprofit sector to adopt this innovative approach.

  • 3. WHAT IS LEAN STARTUP?
  • 4. CORE IDEAS MINIMIZE WASTE Lean startup philosophy seeks to eliminate wasteful practices and increase value producing practices during the product development phase so that startups can have a better chance of success without requiring large amounts of outside funding, elaborate business plans, or the perfect product.
  • 5. CORE IDEAS BUILD SOMETHING THEY ACTUALLY WANT Customer feedback during product development is integral to the lean startup process, and ensures that the producer does not invest time designing features or services that consumers do not want.
  • 6. CORE IDEAS Lean startup philosophy counter-balance the infinite capacity of human to self-delusion
  • 7. CORE IDEAS WHAT IS A STARTUP? A human institution designed to deliver a new product or service under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
  • 8. CORE IDEAS If innovation is all about operating within conditions of extreme uncertainty, and if we are first and foremost in search of answers and only THEN building our products, then we have to get a lot better at getting answers quickly (and yes, social change work nearly always operates under conditions of “extreme uncertainty.”) Innovation succeeds at specific point of equilibrium changes – when things are about to change, not after they've changed
  • 9. CORE IDEAS To do this, we have to get better at what is called “validated learning” – getting clear data around our core assumptions – by iterating through a BUILD – MEASURE – LEARN cycle
  • 10. WHY LEAN IS IMPORTANT? WHAT IS THE POINT? Unfair Advantage An organization practicing lean principles has an unfair advantage against a completely equivalent organization that doesn’t.
  • 11. ACHIEVING FAILURE Majority of organization are very good at Achieving Failure Definition: successfully executing a bad plan If we're building something nobody wants, what does it matter if we accomplish it
  • 12. ACHIEVING FAILURE The method of accountability in traditional management is about projecting into the future and measuring success by how they do compared to the forecast. "Lean" comes from manufacturing. Manufacturing doesn't do not waterfall anymore. The customer is the most important part of the production line. But we have to know who is the customer?
  • 13. WHAT IS THE MAIN GOAL OF A START-UP? • It can also be applied to a project, new feature, a product development process.
  • 14. WHAT IS THE MAIN GOAL OF A START-UP? TO FIND OUT WHAT WORKS
  • 15. WHAT IS THE MAIN GOAL OF A START-UP?
  • 16. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE
  • 17. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE The main determinant of whether / how quickly we innovate is how quickly we can go through the BUILD – MEASURE – LEARN cycle
  • 18. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE The faster we go, the more quickly we learn, the more often we pivot, the less time we waste
  • 19. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE We optimize for learning and build organizations that are made to adapt quickly
  • 20. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE Lean startup its about teaching startups to speed up their learning. (This makes sense, but it’s not how we (any of us) act most of the time)
  • 21. THE LEAN STARUTUP CYCLE Startup = Experiment
  • 22. BUILDING A STARTUP What does it take to go from an idea to implementation?
  • 23. BUILDING A STARTUP Waterfall (Product) Development
  • 24. BUILDING A STARTUP It used to be: A. We will write a (business) plan? B. Then we would know everything there is to know 1. Operating plan 2. Financial Model C.And we simply execute that plan
  • 25. BUILDING A STARTUP Reality: No plan survives the first contact with clients
  • 26. BUILDING A STARTUP Reason: Startups are not a smaller version of lagers companies • Startups search • Companies execute Search for what? Execute what?
  • 27. BUILDING A STARTUP We still need a plan Planning that comes before The (business) Plan
  • 28. BUILDING A STARTUP So a "Search Plan" first Then an "Operating Business Plan" to execute
  • 29. BUILDING A STARTUP Tool: The Business Model Canvas •To organize your thinking •To get out of the building • To test the hypothesis • And update our canvas
