The presentation focuses on providing an overview, fundamentals and history of the concept of the lean startup companies.

  • 5. I HAVE AN IDEA.
  • 14. MEDIA
  • 23. The vast majority of start-ups fail not because they couldn't build a product, but because no one wanted the product. Steve Blank
  • 24. No business plan survives the first customer contact. – Alexander Osterwalder
  • 25. SUCCESSFULLY EXECUTING A BAD PLAN You build a product… • on time • on budget • with high quality • and beautiful design But nobody wants it ACHIVING STARTUP FAILURE
  • 26. THE BIGGEST WASTE OF TIME, MONEY, ENERGY, SKILLS, PASSION, LIFE… IS BUILDING SOMETHING NOBODY WANTS.
  • 29. Welcome to creative capitalism / added value economy Source: Richard Florida, Creative Class
  • 30. Creative capitalism trends • Individualization and egomania • We want everything and we want it “now” • Shopping and travelling, fun and beauty • Big mobility of nations • Business environment is totally unstable • Global and really tough competition • The world is flat • Total market saturation (in the most countries) • People are more lonely and unhappy being more connected • High level of interactivity • Big demographic changes
  • 35. We have to give up the notions that we can: 1) Accurately describe the past 2) Predict the future 3) Manufacture it There is no such thing as a visionary! It‘s only deep understanding of customer!
  • 36. Innovation comes so quickly these days that one transformation has not reached the mainstream in its lifecycle adoption curve before the next is upon us. •Short life cycle of products •Constant innovation
  • 37. To prosper through these changes, whether as an individual or a business, you must be • fast, • efficient, • and value-creating.
  • 38. You must be lean, agile and sexy. You must think quick & act fast.
  • 40. Lean Entrepreneurs • Scalable start-up founders (the next big thing) • Lifestyle business founders • Intrapreneurs • Educators and Consultants • Government Change Agents • Investors … • Small-business founders • Solo practioners
  • 41. It‘s easy to talk about „lean“. It‘s hard to be LEAN.
  • 42. Doing a Startup is a Lesson in Pain & Sacrifice.
  • 43. Don‘t do a start-up • It‘s not cool • You probably won‘t make any money • You like your quality of life and regular pay check • You love your girlfriend more than your start-up • Your idea probably sucks • You will have to fire people • Someone will sue you • You don‘t know marketing and selling • Are you a loser or a leader? Source: Dave McClure
  • 45. START:UP LIFESTYLE • DEFAULT OUTCOME: FAILURE • 100% FOCUS • MAIN FOOD IS PIZZA • EMOTIONAL ROLLER COSTER • IT‘S NOT A JOB LEARNING SPEED: 500 KM/H
  • 46. • Ultra geeks/hustlers, best in their generation • No personal money problems, no worries • (International) experience and leverage • Established team before start-up story • Beginning of the new trend
  • 47. START-UP A human institution designed to create something new under conditions of extreme uncertainty. Eric Ries
  • 48. The Lean Startup provides a scientific approach to creating and managing startups and get a desired product to customers’ hands faster. ENTREPRENEURSHIP = MANAGEMENT - Eric Ries
  • 49. LEAN IS NOT EASY MAGIC COSTLESS WITHOUT FAILURE (OPPOSITE) PAINLES NO QUICK RESULTS
  • 50. LEAN MYTHS Lean means cheap It‘s about speed It‘s only for IT companies All companies that face uncertainty Small bootstrapped start-ups Ambitious companies that are able to deploy large amount of capital Replace vision with data Driven by a compelling vision, testing everything
  • 51. • Optimize efficiency in all value-added activities • Eliminate or minimize all non-value-added activities • Fake feeling of progress • LOWER THE RISK • INCREASE SUCCESS RATE
  • 52. MURA = STANDARD TACT TIME MURI = NO BOTTLE NECS MUDA = TOTALLY USELES (7)
  • 53. GENERAL PRINCIPLES • Add nothing but value (eliminate waste) • Build quality in • Defer commitment • Deliver fast • Respect people • Optimize the whole, not the parts • Cause and effect • Create knowledge (focus on learning) • Early, rapid feedback ELIMINATE WASTE (FAT) • Reduce time from order to cash
  • 54. 7 TYPES OF WASTE • In-process inventory • Anything other than the finished product = Partially work done • Over production • Anything produced but not sold / used = Extra features • Extra processing • Rework, reprocessing = Re-learning • Transportation • Unnecessary movement of materials / product = Handoffs • Motion • Every extra step = Task switching • Waiting • Downtime because an upstream activity is late = Delays • Defects • Product not conforming to specifications
  • 55. TYPICAL CAUSES OF WASTE • Layout (distance) • Long set-up time • Poor work methods • Lack of training • Functional organizations • Technology Gaps • Little understanding of the entire process • Historic supervisory roles • Irrelevant performance measures • Lack of workplace organization • Supplier quality/reliability • Poor communication • Avoidable interruptions • Complexity
  • 56. Waste in a lean start-up (value economy) are those activities that do not produce learning about the market and customers. INSIGHT! • What is core value? • What solution provides the value? • To whom the value is provided? • How to market, sell and deliver the value? • How to capture the value?
  • 57. Learning organization • Data before rhetoric • Use data to resolve conflicts • Use data to measure progress • Use data to make inform decisions • Testing before execution -> Experiment to reduce risk • Reduce market and technical risks • Test new ideas • Optimize results • Customers before business plan -> Understand them deeply • Continuously learn • Make data-based decisions • Continuously improve Source: Lean Entrepreneur
  • 58. The Irony • The Way to go big is to focus small • One of the biggest entrepreneur traps is to be all things to all people MONEY LIVES ON THE FOCUS ISLAND!
  • 59. • Demand (for your product) • Ability (for your team to make it) • Desire (you have to care!) • You‘re good at • That you want to do • Can make money doing DO SOMETHING FIND INTERSECTION Just do it
  • 62. BE SURE YOU CAN MAKE MONEY DOING IT!
  • 63. ELEMENTS OF SUSTAINABLE COMPANIES CLARITY OF PURPOSE: Summarize the company’s business on the back of a business card. LARGE MARKETS: Address existing markets poised for rapid growth or change. A market on the path to a $1B potential allows for error and time for real margins to develop. RICH CUSTOMERS: Target customers who will move fast and pay a premium for a unique offering. FOCUS: Customers will only buy a simple product with a singular value proposition. PAIN KILLERS: Pick the one thing that is of burning importance to the customer then delight them with a compelling solution. THINK DIFFERENTLY: Constantly challenge conventional wisdom. Take the contrarian route. Create novel solutions. Outwit the competition. TEAM DNA: A company’s DNA is set in the first 90 days. All team members are the smartest or most clever in their domain. “A” level founders attract an “A” level team. AGILITY: Stealth and speed will usually help beat-out large companies. FRUGALITY: Focus spending on what’s critical. Spend only on the priorities and maximize profitability. INFERNO: Start with only a little money. It forces discipline and focus. A huge market with customers yearning for a product developed by great engineers requires very little firepower. Source: Sequioa Capital
