    Lecture 2 value proposition Lecture 2 value proposition Presentation Transcript

    • The Lean LaunchPadLecture 2: Value Proposition Steve Blank Jon Feiber Jon Burke http://i245.stanford.edu/
    • Agenda• Team Bus Model Presentations• Value Proposition – Product – Service – Ecosystem
    • VALUE PROPOSITIONSwhat are you offering them? what is that getting done for them? do they care? images by JAM
    • Step 1. Spec. the Value Proposition• Product(s)?• Service(s)?• Ecosystem?• Is it a company or product?
    • Value Proposition – Common Mistake• Is it just a feature of someone else‟s product• Is it a “nice to have” product• Is it a “got to have” product• Can it scale to a company?
    • Value Proposition - Discovery• Product – Long term vision – features – Benefits – Minimum Viable Product spec• For a web/mobile app – Low fidelity MVP live and running• Understand Customer Problem and Solution• Test Market Type
    • Product• Problem Statement: What is the problem?• Technology / Market Insight: Why is the problem so hard to solve?• Market Size: How big is this problem?• Competition: What do customers do today?• Product: How do you do it?
    • Step 2: What’s the Minimum Viable Product – Physical• First, test your understanding of the problem• Next test your understanding of the solution – Proves that it solves a core problem for customers – The minimum set of features needed to learn from earlyvangelists- Interviews, demos, prototypes, etc- Lots of eyeball contact
    • Step 2: What’s the Minimum Viable Product – Web/Mobile• NOW “low fidelity” web/app for customer feedback – First, tests your understanding of the problem• LATER, “high fidelity” web/app tests your understanding of the solution – Proves that it solves a core problem for customers – The minimum set of features needed to learn from earlyvangelists- Avoid building products nobody wants- Maximize the learning per time spent
    • Step 2: What’s the Testing the Minimum Viable Product – Web/Mobile • Smoke testing with landing pages using AdWords • In-product split-testing • Prototypes (particularly for hardware) • Removing features • Continued customer discovery and validation • Surveys • Interviews
    • Step 2: What’s the Testing the MVP– Web/Mobile - Tactics• Interview customers – make sure they have a matching core problem• Set up web site landing page to test for conversion – What offers are required to get customers to use the product (e.g. prizes, payment) – Use problem definition as described by customers to identify key word list – plug into Google search traffic estimator - high traffic means there is problem awareness• Drive traffic to site using Google search and see how deep into a registration process customers are willing to go through
    • Pivot Example Robotic WeedingTalked 75 Customers in 8 Weeks
    • Our initial plan
    • 20 interviews, 6 site visits… We got OUR Boots dirtyWeedingVisited two farms in Salinas Valley to better understand problemInterviewed:• Bolthouse Farms, Large Agri-Industry in Bakersfield• White Farms, Large Peanut farmer in Georgia• REFCO Farms, large grower in Salinas Valley• Rincon Farms, large grower in Salinas Valley• Small Organic Corn/Soy grower in Nebraska• Heirloom Organics, small owner/operator, Santa Cruz Mts• Two small organic farmers at farmers market• Ag Services of Salinas, Fertilizer applicatorMowingInterviewed:• Golf: Stanford Golf course• Parks: Stanford Grounds Supervisor, head of maintenance and lead operator (has crew of 6)• Toro dealer (large mower manufacturer)• User of back-yard mowing system• Maintenance Services for City of Los Altos• Colony Landscaping (Mowing service for stadiums)
    • Autonomous Vehicles for Mowing & Weeding - Innovation Dealers sell, installs Mowing- Dealers (Mowing - Customer We reduce operating and supports - Owners of publicand Ag) Education cost customer or commercially- Vehicle OEMs - Dealer training - Labor reduction used green spaces(John Deere, Toro, - Better utilization of Co. trains (e.g. golf courses)Jacobsen, etc) assets (mow or dealers, supports - Landscaping weed at nights) dealers service provider- Research labs - Improved performance (less Weeding Engineers on rework, food safety) - Mowing Dealers - Farmers with Autonomous - Ag Dealers manual weeding vehicles, GPS, path operations -planningDealer discount Asset saleCOGS seek a 50-60% Gross Margin Our revenue stream derives from selling the equipmentHeavy R&D investment
    • Found weeding in organic crops is HUGE problem; 50 - 75% of costs Crews of 100s-1000 Back-breaking task (Ilegal) labor harder to get 1-5 weedings per year/field $250-3,500 per acre and increasing Food contamination risk
    • Decision to make – mowing vs weedingApplication If ROI is < 1 yr Labor costs Autonomous TAM they will buy significant? would solve problem? Mowing of Yes. Yes Yes Adjusted up to Professionally xxxlarge fields run organizationsWeeding in Agri Industry: YES! for TAM increased YES! organic Not necessarily to $2.6 B (TotalAgriculture crops organic) Large Growers: Key need is weed Yes They are vs. crop Target Market spending differentiation (organic Small Growers: $500/ac! specialty) No 162 M/yr 18%/yr growth
    • Autonomous vehiclesWEEDING - Innovation Dealers - Low density- Ag Dealers - Customer We reduce sell, installs and vegetable- Ag Service Education operating cost supports growersproviders - Dealer training - Labor reduction customer - High density (100 to 1) vegetable- Research labs - Reduced risk of Co. trains growers contamination dealers, supports - Thinning - Mitigate labor dealers operations Engineers on availability - Ag Dealers - Conventional Machine Vision concerns - Ag Service vegetables Two problems: providers - Identification - EliminationDealer discount Asset saleCOGS seek a 50-60% Gross Margin Our revenue stream derives from selling theHeavy R&D investment equipment

    • Visit HighlightsAbove: Organic Carrots, 7wks.Top right: Conventional carrotsBottom Right: Very weedy. Will requiremultiple passes of hand weeding
    • Visit Highlights Carrot vs. WeedsDue to small root systems, carrots have no chance against weeds
    • Visit HighlightsOrganic Broccoli, closely cultivated. Weedsclose to plants are hand-picked
    • Visit HighlightsState of the Art in Weeding Technology for Organic Crops
    • Customer HypothesisPre-Test Large Growers Us Dealer Industrial Growers Hypothesis Confirmed • Growers interested in own Industrial equipment Growers • Industrial (10,000s of acres) • Large (1,000s of acres)Post-Test • Willing to pay $100k for one Large unit Growers Us Dealer • Smaller growers (100s of acres) Service usually subcontract the labor services Providers or rent equipment Equipment • All purchases through local dealers Rental • Customer service is essential
    • Customer Map #1 – Industrial Growers Example: Bolthouse Farms – Large Industrial Carrot Producer – 8K acres/yr End User • Equipment Operator Influencer • Local Farm Mgr • Cliff Kirkpatrick, visitedRecommender • Director, Ag Equipment Operator Technology • Justin Grove, interviewed Decision Maker • VP, Growing Operations Approver • CFO, CEO (Jeff Dunn) Cliff, Farm Mgr
    • Customer Map #2 – Service Providers Example: Ag Services – Service Provider, Salinas Valley End User • Equipment Operator Influencer • GrowerRecommender • Service Mgr Me (left), Marty (middle, Service Mgr), Doug (right, Grower)Decision Maker • ?? (service mgr‟s & Approver boss)

    • Market Type
    • Definitions: Four Types of Markets Clone Market Existing Market Resegmented New Market Market• Clone Market – Copy of a U.S. business model• Existing Market – Faster/Better = High end• Resegmented Market – Niche = marketing/branding driven – Cheaper = low end• New Market – Cheaper/good enough, creates a new class of product/customer – Innovative/never existed before
    • Market Type Existing Resegmented NewCustomers Known Possibly Known UnknownCustomer Performance Better fit TransformationalNeeds improvementCompetitor Many Many if wrong, Nones few if rightRisk Lack of branding, Market and Evangelism and sales and distribution product re- education cycle ecosystem definitionExamples Google Southwest Groupon Market Type determines:  Rate of customer adoption  Sales and Marketing strategies  Cash requirements
    • Market Type - Existing• Incumbents exist, customers can name the mkt• Customers want/need better performance• Usually technology driven• Positioning driven by product and how much value customers place on its features• Risks: – Incumbents will defend their turf – Network effects of incumbent – Continuing innovation
    • Market Type – Resementing Existing• Low cost provider (Southwest)• Unique niche via positioning (Whole Foods)• What factors can: – you eliminate that your industry has long competed on? – Be reduced well below the industry‟s standard? – should be raised well above the industry‟s standard? – be created that the industry has never offered? (blue ocean)
    • Market Type – New• Customers don‟t exist today• How will they find out about you?• How will they become aware of their need?• How do you know the market size is compelling?• Which factors should be created that the industry has never offered? (blue ocean)
    • For Tomorrow’s Presentation• What were your value proposition hypotheses?• What did potential customers think about your value proposition hypotheses? – Get out of the building and begin to talk to customers for Oct 12th – Talk to 10-15 customers more by Oct 18th – Follow-up with Survey Monkey (or similar service) to get more data• Submit interview notes, present results in class.• Update your blog/wiki/journal with progress customers and value prop
    • Examples
    • Group Privacy: Nan, Jim, Sundaresan• Protect privacy for users of location-based services (LBS)
    • The Business Model Canvas: ver 0.0 Privacy Creating Increased educational advocacy Privacy- awareness privacy groups trust concerned customers Building trust who use LBS LBS App Providers Technology Own website Bundling with LBS apps Developing App revenue (direct or shared) costs Marketing costs
    • The Business Model Canvas: ver 0.1 Privacy Creating Increased educational advocacy awareness Privacy- privacy groups trust concerned customers Building trust LBS App No loss of who use LBS Providers service quality Smart phone users uneasy about privacy Technology Own website Bundling with LBS apps Developing App revenue (direct or shared) costs Marketing Subscription costs
    • How to Test Large number of privacy- concerned LBS users Existing market research Willing to pay for protecting Talk to customers locations  Directly or indirectly Able to reach them with low cost Bid on Google AdWords for location privacy Able to ease their concerns (now no ads) through  education Talk to customers  endorsement by privacy watchdog Talk to privacy advocacy groups (e.g., groups 25,000 adults stalked by GPS) LBS app developers are willing to partner Talk to LBS app developers Privacy groups are willing to Talk to privacy advocacy groups endorse
    • Methodologies• User interviews at Tresidder and I-Corps (11)• LBS Domain Expert Interviews (1)• Google AdWords (up and running)• Online Survey (32 responses)• Privacy Group Interviews (pending)
    • Hypothesis 1:Large number of privacy-concerned LBS users Most had low concern about location privacy• User Interviews - Reasons • User Interviews – Reasons for lack of concern for concern – Trust the provider – Uncertainty how data – Don‟t believe that data can used/misused be used against them – General unease – Never crossed their mind • Survey: 34% concerned – Don‟t use LBS – 37% chose not to use a LBS – Don‟t have smartphone because of privacy concerns – Data already available to carriers &government• Survey: 66% not concerned
    • Hypothesis 2: Willing to pay for protecting locations Even some unconcerned customers are willing to pay!• User Interviews – Unwilling to • User Interviews – Willing to pay pay: – Not interested in even a free – $15/month for total privacy service protection, only a “few – Not concerned enough to pay bucks/month” for location – Not enough value add privacy – $1/week• Survey: 28% would not use it – $5 one time payment even if it is free, 54% would not pay • Survey: 46% willing to pay – 9%: $1 – 19%: $10 – 9%: $1/month – 9%: $5/month
    • Hypothesis 3:Able to reach them with low cost• Yes – at least at first• Google Ad Words: – Should be cheap at first - We are the only advertiser for “location privacy” (and related) – Location privacy is a popular search term
    • Hypothesis 4:Able to raise awareness through education • Yes • User Interviews – education may prove effective to some, as many did not think about or understand that LBS providers would get their location data, and indicated more concern
    • Hypothesis 5:Able to ease concerns through endorsement• Yes• User interviews – endorsement from “famous people” and “serious organizations” would help ease concerns on the effectiveness of privacy protection.
    • Hypothesis 6:LBS app developers are willing to partner• No – so far• Domain expert interview: – LBS app developers will hate our service – Increase LBS app’s operational cost• User interviews – Overwhelming issue – not lack of privacy protection • But lack of perceived LBS value – Secondary: LBS reputation and trust
    • Hypothesis 7: Privacy groups are willing to endorse• Unknown
    • Market Size EstimationNumber of Users Pricing Entire market • Originally considered 1x  > 100m unique Google payment Maps mobile visitors/month • But customers naturally Served available market assumed subscription  55% users concerned service about sharing location • Possible to charge more? information [Nielsen 2011] – Reduced price --/--> Target market willingness to use  Open Question, but rapidly growing market
    • Pivot Point?• Not yet, but if user interview data trends against our hypotheses…• Two new models to consider – Licensing – Location based monitoring • Privacy scorecard • Hyperlocal news
    • ARKA LightsHigh Performance Heat Dissipation Technology for LED Lighting  Hypotheses: • Improved novel (integrated) thermal dissipation technology can significantly improve LED lighting performance and reduce cost • Our technology allows direct replacement of commercial high lumen but low efficiency incandescent bulbs with LEDs without light quality/output compromises • This can deliver a scalable business model

    • GETTING OUT OF THE BUILDING• We‟re talking to (some combination of): – OEMS – Architects (Rita Koltai – Koltai Lighting Design) – Technical Experts/Consultants (Stanford University), Prof. Robert Davis, (CMU) – Lighting designers and manufacturers (Greenray Lighting) – Lighting Distributors (Stanford Lighting) – Facility Managers (Sheraton Hotel) – Retail Outlets (Pottery Barn)
    • CUSTOMER FEEDBACK1) Prof. Robert Davis, Founder of CREE – a leading LED company - Heat transfer is a major issue. Not sure whether the internal phonon reflectance may in fact be the leading thermal limit.2) Prof. James Harris, EE Department, Stanford University - Heat transfer issue – The phonon reflection increases significantly with the doping of new materials. This reduces thermal conductivity of the LED. Eventually it becomes the limiting factor. Need to include reduction in the thermal conductivity in the heat transfer modeling. - Bought six PAR38 lights for his family room last week. Wants them to last 20-30 years as changing them with a ladder was a major hassle. - Light intensity was lower than incandescent bulbs it replaced. Not happy about that.
    • CUSTOMER FEEDBACK3) Mr. Mo, Co-owner of Greenway Lighting, Santa Rosa, California - T8 lighting (tube light replacement) is their main product. PAR38 replacement is needed, but not available today. They recommend PAR30, a much lower intensity product. The available PAR38 do not meet the lighting intensity and light quality demands for replacing the current incandescent lights. - Replacing light bulbs is a major hassle. Costs $400 to rent a cherry picker to replace bulbs – makes very expensive. Need to have longer life. - Offered a business proposition to do thermal design of his LED lights on a consultation basis (Not an attractive business model for us due to very low returns and limited scalability).
    • CUSTOMER FEEDBACK4) Prof. George Tayo, ME Center for Design, Stanford University - LEDs are evolving very rapidly. Thermal issues are similar to PCs – cooling will remain major issues as performance and quality envelope will continue to expand.5) Mr. Bruno (maintenance supervisor) – Sheraton Hotel, Palo Alto - Use 100‟s of PAR38 in this hotel. Replace every 6 months or so. Would be happy with longer life product - Current weight of LEDs might prevent them from being used in establishments with high ceiling. (Heavy aluminum heat sink adds significantly to weight).
    • CUSTOMER FEEDBACK6. Pottery Barn Staff – Pottery Barn, Palo Alto  Title 24 has changed the procurement patterns of corporate headquarters regarding light fixtures – no dimming or two-way switches (Need to become familiar with local laws)  Use incandescent lights for all general illumination (counted 34 in front foyer alone) without dimming or daylight control. Extensive use of CFLs in displays (not directional so less suitable for task lighting).7. Paul (salesperson) – Stanford Electricals - • Advocate of LEDs; largely „self-educated‟ • Indicated that rising prices (~30% in last 6 mths) of fluorescents (due to phosphor costs) and falling LED prices will boost LED sales • Indicated unwillingness of smaller retailers to experiment with new suppliers products‟ • Highlighted form factor of LEDs and emphasized that products need to be used without changing current infrastructure. • Seeing significantly increased adoption of LEDs by customers (particularly over last 5 mths)

    • IMMEDIATE Next steps• Conduct further interviews to asap validate value proposition and channel hypotheses – OEMS and Institutions – Specifiers and Contractors• Begin work on key activities including reduction of technology to practice (prototyping)
    • Summary• Contacted 8 diverse feedback nodes (experts, customers, supply chain)• Partially validated three components of the initial canvas. – Learned more about possible value proposition. – Modified key activities to include thermal modeling – Recognized need for engaging with OEMs asapDisclaimer – The conclusions drawn here are based on a limiteddata collected. Further validation will be conducted.
