  • Entrepreneurship Course – Session 2 - 2014 © Olivier WITMEUR LIMITATIONS OF LEAN #4
  • Entrepreneurship Course – Session 2 - 2014 © Olivier WITMEUR Lean is good… but not magic. Beware the fad. •  In the past, it was called qualitative ‘market research’ •  Test with the customer… but who is the customer. Is she/he ready to play the game? •  Time consuming. Too much tests? •  Ability to build MVP? Costs? •  OK when you have many customer (mass market) but how to deal with very small market •  Reputation risk (with ‘crappy’ MVP) •  Confidentiality issues •  Pivot is trendy … but not a recipe for success. 30
