Video: Lessons from Eric Ries’ The Lean Startup
Eric Ries is a software and product developer, entrepreneur, now public speaker and author of the bestselling book The Lean Startup. He recently gave this talk at LSE and I remember thinking that his lean methodology can and should be applied to most event businesses. This isn’t a short video – but if you are interested in strategy and thinking differently about your job it’s worth watching!
(I recommend skipping the introduction to 4:30 minutes in, and if you have time listen to the questions at the end)

Minimise the time between; we have an idea and validated the idea to work out if that idea is brilliant or crazy.[/testimonial_item] [testimonial_item name=”Eric Ries”]Experiment
How much inventory should you have? No more inventory than the early adopters. Before you can have a million customers you have a thousand, before you have a thousand you have 100 and before 100 you need ten. [/testimonial_item][/testimonial_slider]
