The Lean Startup – Eric Ries

I have worked most of my career at startups. Some have been successful, others failures. This may explain my interest whenever I see something about startups. I am very interested in how others experience line up with mine. I recently came across a slideshow by Eric Ries entitled The Lean Startup.

There are a couple of items I particularly liked:

  • The comment that a startup "has nothing to do with the size of the company"
  • Speed wins – decrease time between major iterations
  • Minimize total time through the following loop: Ideas -> Build (Code) -> Measure (Data) -> Learn -> More Ideas
  • Five Whys Root Cause Analysis
