  2. 2. • What is Lean Start-up Methodology? ● Scientific approach to creating and managing start-ups ● Ultimate goal is to get products to customers' hands faster ● Takes its name from the lean manufacturing revolution that Taiichi Ohno and Shigeo Shingo are credited with. Introduction to the LSM
  3. 3. It's a process therefore, it can be learned to achieve the expected results The Lean Startup Process
  4. 4. Why Lean Methodology? ●The customer is the ultimate focus here. ●Involve the customer; speak to him to approve or disapprove the ideas you have, else, you fail ●Eliminate uncertainty to create order ●Drives Innovation-
  5. 5. 5 5 Why Lean Methodology? (Cont’d) • Promotes innovation-through the core ‘build- measure-learn’ feedback loop and asks the question of whether a product SHOULD be built instead of whether it CAN be built.
  6. 6. 6 6 Why Lean Methodology? (Cont’d) • Promotes the principle of work smarter not harder • It is the best way to build an enduring business today • Starting Lean is today’s best practice for innovators.” — Randy Komisar, founding director of TiVo
  7. 7. Principles of LSM The LSM is built on 5 core principles. ●Entrepreneurs are everywhere- irrespective of industry or company size ●Entrepreneurship is management ●Validated Learning ●Build-Measure-Learn ●Innovative Accounting
  8. 8. Parts of the LSM (1) The whole methodology can be broken into 3 segments; Vision- (to achieve this, we employ a strategy, product roadmap, point of view about partners and competitors and ideas about who the customers will be ) i. Start ii. Define iii. Learn- which elements of our strategy will help us achieve what we want iv. Experiment
  9. 9. Parts of LSM (2) Steer – Having a great a idea or building a great product is not enough, the focus should be on minimizing the total time in this loop. v. Leap-'the-leap-of-faith' assumptions. ie. the value assumption- What will generate value for the customer; and the growth assumption- how will new customers discover our product. vi. Test vii. Measure viii. Pivot (or Persevere)
  10. 10. Parts of LSM (3) Accelerate- Which activities create value and those which form waste? ix. Grow x. Adapt xi. Innovate xii. Join the Movement
  11. 11. ● ‘In order to learn, failure must be an option, and failure while learning must be accepted within the organization. If you cannot fail, then you cannot succeed’. -Jake Simmons ● The story of Edel Technology Consulting - we failed once as a startup. We came back strong. Thanks to the vision of our founder LSM at EDEL Tech Consulting
  12. 12. ● In a state of validated learning in the vision stage of our growth journey ● Trying to find our feet in the market ,preparing to soar ● How? ● We are on our way to succeeding as a lean business by launching(ideas), learning, adapting in a continuous manner EDEL- at present
  13. 13. • Validated Learning EDEL- at present
  14. 14. • Validated learning is ● a process ● of demonstrating empirically that a team has discovered(a sign of learning) ● valuable truths about a start-up’s present and future business prospects What is validated learning?
  15. 15. How Do we Account? ●We are able to know if we are making progress by measuring with concrete decisions- During the Learning phase of validated learning. ●Eliminate what is not necessary and go only with what is necessary for the customer- i.e. that which provides benefit to the customer. All other things contrary to this is waste ●Productivity is when we know the right product to build
  16. 16. What Next? ●Prepare to steer in the direction defined in the current phase ●Experiment, experiment, experiment more ●Not forgetting our vision as a company ●Experimentation drives innovation and causes us to be in the lead
  17. 17. Preparing to Steer ●As we experiment, we must answer these 4 questions as proposed by Ries: ●1.Do consumers recognize that they have the problem we are trying to solve? ●2. If there was a solution, would they buy it? ●3. Would they buy it from us? ●4. Can we build a solution for that problem?
  18. 18. Based on feedback we… ●Build-measure-learn
  19. 19. M-ABLODE ● We identified an employment gap/desire for people to make extra money ● Identified our 2 riskiest assumptions ● We plan and test our assumptions by reaching out to target groups-with interviews/questions ● Build a prototype(MVP)- get groups to try it out so we can measure ● Based on feedback, we Learn- and re-strategize where necessary ● Continue cycle till we succeed- and LAUNCH! Lean product Example
  20. 20. ● The Build-measure-learn steering wheel will help us to make constant adjustments while headed to our destination ● we can learn when and if it’s time to make a sharp turn or whether we should persevere along our current path. Example (cont’d)
