Lean Analytics
for Intrapreneurs
Lean Startup Conference 2013
@acroll
When you’re a startup
your goal is to find a sustainable,
repeatable business model.
When you’re a big company
your goal is to perpetuate one.
Lean Analytics:
Use data to build a better business faster.
Intrapreneur:
Someone working to produce
disruptive change in an organization
that has already found a sustainable,
repeatable business model.
(Before we get into Lean Analytics, 2 key lessons.)

Lesson one:
Companies die because they fail to
move to new business models.

  • 3. Lean Analytics: Use data to build a better business faster.
  • 4. Intrapreneur: Someone working to produce disruptive change in an organization that has already found a sustainable, repeatable business model.
  • 5. (Before we get into Lean Analytics, 2 key lessons.) Lesson one: Companies die because they fail to move to new business models.

  • 8. The new market has different criteria for success, which are uninteresting to incumbents. $1 $10 $100 Storage capacity Portability $1000 Clay Christensen, The Innovator’s Dilemma Time
  • 9. Sometimes this has unintended consequences $1 Smaller disc size means less vibration impact, leading to greater density, increasing storage capacity $10 $100 $1000 Clay Christensen, The Innovator’s Dilemma Time
  • 10. Three kinds of innovation Improve along current metrics... Switch to a new value model Change the business model entirely ...or alter the rate of improvement Sustain/core Innovate/adjacent Disrupt/transformative (optimizing for more of the same) (introduce nearby product, market, or method) (Fundamentally changing the business model)
  • 11. Lesson two: The difference between a rogue agent and a special operative is permission.
  • 12. It’s not your job to prove you’re clever. It’s your job to change outcomes.
  • 13. A quick introduction to Lean Analytics
  • 14. Kevin Costner is a lousy entrepreneur. Don’t sell what you can make. Make what you can sell.
  • 15. The core of Lean is iteration.
  • 17. Everyone’s idea is the best right? No data, no learning. People love this part! (but that’s not always a good thing) This is where things fall apart.
  • 19. Analytics is the measurement of movement towards your business goals.
  • 20. In a startup, the purpose of analytics is to iterate to product/market fit before the money runs out.
  • 21. In a big company, analytics replaces opinion with fact.
  • 22. It helps you innovate on product, market, and method.
  • 24. A good metric is: Understandable Comparative If you’re busy explaining the data, you won’t be busy acting on it. Comparison is context. A ratio or rate The only way to measure change and roll up the tension between two metrics (MPH) Behavior changing If you’re busy explaining the data, you won’t be busy acting on it.
  • 25. The simplest rule If a metric won’t change how you behave, it’s a bad metric. h"p://www.flickr.com/photos/circasassy/7858155676/
  • 26. Metrics help you know yourself. Customers that buy >1x in 90d 1-15% 15-30% >30% Then you are in this mode Your customers will buy from you You are just like 70% Acquisition Once Hybrid 2-2.5 20% per year of retailers Loyalty >2.5 10% per year of retailers of retailers Focus on Low acquisition cost, high checkout Increasing return rates, market share Loyalty, selection, inventory size (Thanks to Kevin Hillstrom for this.)
  • 27. Qualitative Quantitative Unstructured, anecdotal, revealing, hard to aggregate, often too positive & reassuring. Numbers and stats. Hard facts, less insight, easier to analyze; often sour and disappointing. Warm and fuzzy. Cold and hard.
  • 28. Exploratory Reporting Speculative. Tries to find unexpected or interesting insights. Source of unfair advantages. Predictable. Keeps you abreast of the normal, day-to-day operations. Can be managed by exception. Cool. Necessary.
  • 29. Rumsfeld on Analytics we know Are facts which may be wrong and should be checked against data. we don’t know Are questions we can answer by reporting, which we should baseline & automate. we know Are intuition which we should quantify and teach to improve effectiveness, efficiency. we don’t know Are exploration which is where unfair advantage and interesting epiphanies live. know Things we don’t know (Or rather, Avinash Kaushik channeling Rumsfeld)
  • 30. Slicing and dicing data Active users 5,000 Cohort: Comparison of similar groups along a timeline. 0 Jan (this is the April cohort) Feb Segment: Cross-sectional comparison of all people divided by some attribute (age, gender, etc.) Mar ☀ ☁ Apr May A/B test: Changing one thing (i.e. color) and measuring the result (i.e. revenue.) ☀ ☁ ☀ ☁ Multivariate analysis Changing several things at once to see which correlates with a result.
  • 31. Which of these two companies is doing better?
  • 32.   March April May Rev/customer $5.00 $4.50 $4.33 $4.25 $4.50 1 2 3 4 5 January How about this one? February Cohort Is this company growing or stagnating? January $5 $3 $2 $1 $0.5 $6 $4 $2 $1 March $7 $6 $5 April   $8 $7     $9 February May

  • 34. The ability to do things in small batches is behind much of the lean movement.
  • 35. Short cycle time triggers the immune system of big company budgeting.
  • 36. (this is called foreshadowing.)
  • 37. Lagging Historical. Shows you how you’re doing; reports the news. Example: sales. Explaining the past. Leading Forward-looking. Number today that predicts tomorrow; reports the news. Example: pipeline. Predicting the future.
  • 38. Some examples A Facebook user reaching 7 friends within 10 days of signing up (Chamath Palihapitiya) If someone comes back to Zynga a day after signing up for a game, they’ll probably become an engaged, paying user (Nabeel Hyatt) A Dropbox user who puts at least one file in one folder on one device (ChenLi Wang) Twitter user following a certain number of people, and a certain percentage of those people following the user back (Josh Elman) A LinkedIn user getting to X connections in Y days (Elliot Schmukler) (From the 2012 Growth Hacking conference. http://growthhackersconference.com/)
  • 39. Which means it’s time to talk about correlation.
  • 40. 10000 1000 100 10 1 Jan Feb Mar Apr May Ice cream consumption Jun Jul Aug Sept Drownings Oct Nov Dec
  • 41. Correlated Two variables that are related (but may be dependent on something else.) Ice cream & drowning. Causal An independent variable that directly impacts a dependent one. Summertime & drowning.
  • 42. A leading, causal metric is a superpower. h"p://www.flickr.com/photos/bloke_with_camera/401812833/sizes/o/in/photostream/

  • 46. The Lean Analytics framework.
  • 47. Eric’s three engines of growth Stickiness Virality Price Approach Keep people coming back. Make people invite friends. Spend money to get customers. Math that matters Get customers faster than you lose them. How many they tell, how fast they tell them. Customers are worth more than they cost.
  • 48. Dave’s Pirate Metrics AARRR Acquisition Activation Retention Revenue Referral How do your users become aware of you? SEO, SEM, widgets, email, PR, campaigns, blogs ... Do drive-by visitors subscribe, use, etc? Features, design, tone, compensation, affirmation ... Does a one-time user become engaged? Notifications, alerts, reminders, emails, updates... Do you make money from user activity? Transactions, clicks, subscriptions, DLC, analytics... Do users promote your product? Email, widgets, campaigns, likes, RTs, affiliates...
  • 49. The five stages Stage EMPATHY STICKINESS Gate I’ve found a real, poorly-met need that a reachable market faces. I’ve figured out how to solve the problem in a way they will keep using and pay for. VIRALITY I’ve found ways to get them to tell their friends, either intrinsically or through incentives. REVENUE The users and features fuel growth organically and artificially. SCALE I’ve found a sustainable, scalable business with the right margins in a healthy ecosystem.
  • 50. Empathy stage: Localmind hacks Twitter Needed to find out if a core assumption—strangers answering questions—was valid. Ran Twitter experiment instead of writing code Asked senders of geolocated Tweets from Times Square random questions; counted response rate Conclusion: high enough to proceed
  • 51. Stickiness stage: qidiq streamlines invites Survey owner adds recipient to group Survey owner adds recipient to group Survey owner asks question Recipient gets invite Recipient installs mobile app Recipient creates account, profile Recipient can edit profile, etc. Recipient reads survey question Recipient responds to question Recipient sees survey results 70-90% RESPONSE RATE 10-25% RESPONSE RATE Survey owner asks question Recipient reads survey question Recipient responds to question Recipient sees survey results (Later, if needed…) Recipient visits site; no password! Recipient does password recovery One-time link sent to email Recipient creates password Recipient can edit profile, etc.

  • 55. Model + Stage = One Metric That Matters. The business you’re in The stage you’re at E-Com SaaS Mobile 2-Sided Media Empathy Stickiness Virality Revenue Scale One Metric That Matters. UCG
  • 58. In a startup, focus is hard to achieve.
  • 59. Having only one metric addresses this problem.
  • 61. Moz cuts down on metrics SaaS-based SEO toolkit in the scale stage. Focused on net adds. Net adds up: Net adds flat: Net adds down: Was a marketing campaign successful? Were customer complaints lowered? Was a product upgrade valuable? Can we acquire more valuable customers? What product features can increase engagement? Can we improve customer support? Are the new customers not the right segment? Did a marketing campaign fail? Did a product upgrade fail somehow? Is customer support falling apart?

  • 65. A company loses a quarter of its customers every year. Is this good or bad?
  • 66. Not knowing what normal is makes you do stupid things.
  • 67. Listening to what normal is makes you ignore disruptive things.
  • 69. Baseline: 5-7% growth a week • Are there enough people who really care enough to sustain a 5% growth rate? • Don’t strive for a 5% growth at the expense of really understanding your customers and building a meaningful solution • Once you’re a pre-revenue startup at or near product/market fit, you should have 5% growth of active users each week • Once you’re generating revenues, they should grow at 5% a week “A good growth rate during YC is 5-7% a week,” he says. “If you can hit 10% a week you're doing exceptionally well. If you can only manage 1%, it's a sign you haven't yet figured out what you're doing.” At revenue stage, measure growth in revenue. Before that, measure growth in active users. Paul Graham, Y Combinator
  • 70. Baseline: 10% visitor engagement/day 30% of users/month use web or mobile app 10% of users/day use web or mobile app 1% of users/day use it concurrently Fred Wilson’s social ratios
  • 71. Baseline: 2-5% monthly churn • The best SaaS get 1.5% - 3% a month. They have multiple Ph.D’s on the job. • Get below a 5% monthly churn rate before you know you’ve got a business that’s ready to grow (Mark MacLeod) and around 2% before you really step on the gas (David Skok) • Last-ditch appeals and reactivation can have a big impact. Facebook’s “don’t leave” reduces attrition by 7%.
  • 72. Baseline: CLV calculation 25% 5% 2% monthly churn monthly churn monthly churn 100/25=4 100/5=20 100/2=50 The average customer lasts 4 months The average customer lasts 20 months The average customer lasts 50 months
  • 73. Baseline: CAC under 1/3 of CLV • CLV is wrong. CAC Is probably wrong, too. • Time kills all plans: It’ll take a long time to find out whether your churn and revenue projections are right • Cashflow: You’re basically “loaning” the customer money between acquisition and CLV. • It keeps you honest: Limiting yourself to a CAC of only a third of your CLV will forces you to verify costs sooner. 20 mo. CL $30/month per customer $600 CLV 1/3 spend $200 CAC Now segment those users!
  • 74. Putting this to work: The Lean Analytics Cycle
  • 75. Pick a KPI Success! Pivot or give up Draw a new line Try again Did we move the needle? Measure the results Draw a line Find a potential improvement Without data: make a good guess With data: find a commonality Design a test Hypothesis Make changes in production
  • 76. Do AirBnB hosts get more business if their property is professionally photographed?

  • 85. It’s different when you’re big.
  • 86. It is way too easy to mix these up. Target market B2B B2C Early stage Big/incumbent Company size/age Less WoM More formal decisions Intrapreneurs Business model vs. company stage Slower cycle time More legacy constraints
  • 87. If big firms can’t innovate, it’s this guy’s fault.
  • 88. When product and market are known, companies compete on how they do things.
  • 89. To get the incremental cost to zero, companies competed on scale. (Literally, an economy of scale)
  • 90. Scale comes from process, IP, org chart, capitalization. All of these assume the future will be like the past, only more so.
  • 91. If a startup is an organization designed to search for a sustainable, repeatable business model, then an established company is an organization designed to perpetuate one.
  • 92. Technology has radically changed the incremental cost of businesses.
  • 93. Software is eating the world. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ebolasmallpox/3733059220/

  • 95. Sustainable competitive advantage allows for inertia and power to build up along the lines of an existing business model, which will soon die. Instead, seek transient competitive advantage. Rita Gunther McGrath, The End of Competitive Advantage
  • 96. Scale is now a liability. Compete on cycle time.
  • 97. Optimizing the probable means discounting the possible.
  • 98. This isn’t about a lack of resources.
  • 100. Blockbuster had a lot going for it.
  • 101. Plenty of inventory, of course. But that matters less than...
  • 102. ...market intelligence, customers, existing payment approval, and customer history.
  • 103. The problem was framing: Blockbuster thought it was in the video store management business. Netflix realized it was in the entertainment delivery business.
  • 108. First mover advantage happens long before the market emerges. • $1B invested in Nook • $475M operating loss in April 2013 • CEO gone

  • 115. A dose of pragmatism
  • 116. Many models for enterprise innovation Core Adjacent Transformative Do the same thing better. Nearby product, market, or method. Start something entirely new. Regional optimizations. Innovation, go-tomarket strategies. Reinvent the business model. • Customer development • Test similar cases • Parallel deployment • Analytics & cycle time • Fail fast • Skunkworks/R&D • Focus on the search • Ignore the current model & margins • Get there faster • Smaller batches • Solution, then testing • Increased accountability
  • 117. Another way to look at it Core Adjacent Transformative Know the problem (customers tell you it) Know the solution (customers/regulations/ norms dictate it.) Know the problem (market analysis) Don’t know the solution (non-obvious innovation confers competitive advantage.) Don’t know the problem (just an emerging need/ change) Don’t know the solution. Waterfall: Execution matters Agile/scrum: Iteration matters Lean Startup: Discovery matters
  • 118. The Three Horizons Core Adjacent Horizon 1 improves the Horizon 2 extends the current business operations business into new products, in the next 12 months. markets, or methods in the next 3 years. Those core businesses most readily identified with the company name and those that provide the greatest profits and cash flow. Maximize remaining value. Emerging opportunities, including rising entrepreneurial ventures likely to generate substantial profits in the future but that could require considerable investment. Transformative Horizon 3 changes the industry you’re in and your value network in the next 6 years. Ideas for profitable growth down the road—for instance, small ventures such as research projects, pilot programs, or minority stakes in new businesses. http://www.mckinsey.com/insights/strategy/enduring_ideas_the_three_horizons_of_growth
  • 119. Lean applies. Startup may not. Core Adjacent Transformative Lean startup Lean methodologies.
  • 120. Method (new “how”) 3 kinds of innovation Product (new “what”) Market (new “who”)
  • 122. A three-maxima model of enterprise innovation Business optimization (five mores) Current state Business model innovation Product, market, method innovation You can convince executives of this because some of it is familiar. This terrifies them because it eats the current business.
  • 123. Improvement Adjacency Remodeling Do the same, only better. Explore what’s nearby quickly Try out new business models Lean approaches apply, but the metrics vary widely. Sustain/ core Innovate/ adjacent Disrupt/ transformative
  • 124. More things To more people Sustaining innovation is about more of the same. (says Sergio Zyman) Inventory increase Gifting, wish lists Highly viral offering Low incremental order costs For more money Maximum shopping cart Price skimming/tiering More often Loyal customer base that returns Demand prediction, notification More efficiently Supply chain optimization Per-transaction cost reduction
  • 125. Software, experimentation, and iterative cycles of learning help you get to the local maximum better and faster. That’s a good thing. But it’s not the only thing.
  • 126. Adjacent innovation is about changing one part of the model in a way that alters the value network.
  • 127. Adjacent product to the same market in the same way
  • 128. Selling the same product to an adjacent market in the same way. Of P&G’s 38 brands, only 19 were sold in Asia as of 2011 Market expansion is seldom selling the same thing to new people. In Asia, P&G needed to Align pricing with novelty (prestige, mass-tige, over-the-counter) Change consumer expectations (moving from dilutes to concentrates) Adjust positioning and ingredients such as white fungus, ginseng, and the parasitic cordyceps
  • 129. Selling the same product to the same in The biggest innovation logistics of the 20th century. market in a new way. http://www.flickr.com/photos/photohome_uk/1494590209
  • 130. Selling the same product to the same market in a new way.
  • 131. (At this point, observant Intrapreneurs should be asking, should P&G be in the house cleaning business? And that would be transformative.)
  • 132. Transformative innovation is about taking a leap, changing more than one dimension simultaneously in search of a new business model.
  • 133. If sustaining, incremental innovation produces linear growth, then disruptive, transformative innovation produces exponential growth.
  • 136. I lied. Everyone is a tech company.

  • 138. Let’s pick on restaurants for a while.
  • 139. Empathy: find the need Before opening, the owner first learns about the diners in her area, their desires, what foods aren’t available, and trends in eating. Key metrics: Popular items; frequent questions; before/after dining patterns. Reference: Emerging need.
  • 140. Stickiness: confirm the need is met. She develops a menu and tests it out with consumers, making frequent adjustments until tables are full and patrons return regularly. She’s giving things away, asking diners what they think. Variance and uncertain inventory make costs high. Key metrics: Customer loyalty; recommendations; referrals; endorsements; inventory turnover. Reference: Business idea.
  • 141. Virality: will it spread? She starts loyalty programs to bring frequent diners back, or to encourage people to share with their friends. She engages on Yelp and Foursquare. Key metrics: Customer loyalty; recommendations; referrals; endorsements. Reference: Business positioning
  • 142. Revenue: prove the business viability With virality kicked off, she works on margins—fewer free meals, tighter controls on costs, more standardization. She focuses on the price of acquiring new customers. Key metrics: Acquisition cost, revenue per cover, capacity, turnover. Reference: Business model.
  • 143. Scale: prove it’s a market Knowing she can run a profitable business, she funnels revenues into marketing and promotion. She reaches out to food reviewers, travel magazines, and radio stations. She launches a second restaurant, or a franchise. Key metrics: Franchise health; repeatability; problems escalated; variance; franchise revenues. Reference: Business plan.

Cannibal: If successful, destroying existing revenue streams. Job killer: Automation & lower margins are your favorite tools. Security risk: Advocate of transparency, open data, communities. Narcissist: Worry constantly about how you’ll get attention. Slum lord: Sell to those with less money, deviants, and weirdos.
