The LEAN Sprint Experiments power breakthrough discovery in both the Scientific Method and our adaptation of it for entrepreneurship: Herein lies the key to breakthrough in both: If your guess disagrees with experiment, it is wrong. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your guess is, how smart you are, who made the guess, or what their name is… it is wrong. – Richard Feynman But while experiments are highly effective at testing guesses, simply running experiments is also not enough.

Argument from analogy Argument from analogy is a special type of inductive argument, whereby perceived similarities are used as a basis to infer some further similarity that has yet to be observed. Analogical reasoning is one of the most common methods by which human beings attempt to understand the world and make decisions.[1] When a person has a bad experience with a product and decides not to buy anything further from the producer, this is often a case of analogical reasoning. It is also implicit in much of science; for instance, experiments on laboratory rats typically proceed on the basis that some physiological similarities between rats and humans entails some further similarity (e.g. reaction to a drug).[2] Structure[edit] The process of analogical inference involves noting the shared properties of two or more things, and from this basis inferring that they also share some further property.[1][2][3] The structure or form may be generalized like so:[1][2][3] Therefore, Q probably has property x also.

His wife has also recorded a video, as it turns out, but she makes a slightly different recommendation for when he should watch it. What's on the video? Let your imagination run wild. Next up in the new series is "Game On," which features two friends playing the same game — one on an iPhone, the other on a Galaxy S III. "How am I supposed to win?
