  4. 4. Let’s face the truth!
  5. 5. Why do startups fail?

  13. 13. What is MVP?
  14. 14. What is an assumption? • Starts with “I/We believe that” statements • Clarifies your current understanding of what you don’t know with uncertainty • Some are more important that others • Identify and isolate critical assumptions
  15. 15. Assumptions Example
  16. 16. Prioritize Assumptions Impact Time Horizon
  17. 17. What is hypothesis? • “If then” statement that helps design tests for an assumption • Clarifies your current understanding of what uncertainty you seek to resolve • Is Specific in action, timing, value / amount of impact • Helps to design and build a MVP
  18. 18. Hypothesis Example
  19. 19. What is an Experiment? • A scientific test undertaken to make a discovery, test a hypothesis, or demonstrate a known fact • Process of rapidly learning what customers want and will pay for • Test Assumptions so that you don’t waste time and money building the wrong thing
  20. 20. What is a MVP (Minimum Viable Product)? • Experiment that helps you validate (or invalidate) hypothesis about the value or growth potential of a new product • MVP helps you answer a specific question about one of your assumptions • Building a MVP is not a one time event
  21. 21. What is Pivot/Persevere? • Pivot – Change in direction without a change in Vision • Persevere – A team’s decision to test the next most important hypothesis
  22. 22. What is Validated Learning?
  23. 23. What is Validated Learning? • Identify assumptions • Isolate critical assumptions for testing • Draft your hypothesis to be tested • Build an Experiment • Measure the Results • Persevere or Pivot
  24. 24. Lean Startup Myths • Myth#1: – Lean means cheap. Lean Startups try to spend as little money as possible • Myth#2: – Lean Startup is applicable for Internet/Consumer Software Companies • Myth#3: – Applicable for small bootstrapped startups
