In April 2012, Brain Mathews asserted in his white paper that libraries need to “Think Like a Startup." But how do startups think? If we are going to emulate startup culture, then we have some learning to do. This interactive session will tackle the build-measure-learn cycle, validated learning, iterative design, continuous improvement, and other components of lean thinking. We'll underscore the importance of hands-on development, prototyping, and hypothesis testing. Come join the conversation and help make entrepreneurial thinking a habitual part of our practice and profession. Presented by M.J. D'Elia & Helen Kula.
