The Lean Startup

The Lean Startup

The Lean Startup method teaches you how to drive a startup-how to steer, when to turn, and when to persevere-and grow a business with maximum acceleration. It is a principled approach to new product development. Too many startups begin with an idea for a product that they think people want. They then spend months, sometimes years, perfecting that product without ever showing the product, even in a very rudimentary form, to the prospective customer. “The Lean Startup method teaches you how to drive a startup-how to steer, when to turn, and when to persevere-and grow a business with maximum acceleration.” + The Lean Startup Process - Diagram + Continuous Innovation Eliminate Uncertainty Work Smarter not Harder Develop An MVP

Facilitating a session with 200+ very smart and very vocal people, many of whom are expert retrospective facilitators, and all of whom would have high expectations, was a pretty scary thought. But also a great opportunity to have some fun and do something that would be an experience I would not forget.

NeuroMap™-the world's first neuromarketing model. Learn More! 3 Brains The starting point of the NeuroMap™ is understanding some basic facts about the structure of the human brain. You may think of the human brain as a single organ, but physiologically, the brain is actually organized into 3 separate parts which act as separate organs with different cellular structures and different functions.

Mosey on over to the iTunes app store, and 9 of the top 10 paid education apps are designed for small children, ages four and up.

Give Math a Chance “I am just not a math person.” Statements like this drive me crazy; yet as a math teacher, I heard them all the time – and the biggest culprits were the parents, not the students.
