Startups

Your startup is your one special thing that only you can see.  It’s the thing you’re bringing into the world that no one has ever done before!   Whether your goal is to sell it to google for millions, or to run it yourself, you’ll need a solid strategy and lots of support to figure out where to go next.

From your first glimmer of inspiration to validating your idea to finalizing your revenue stream, I recommend capturing it on a business model canvas (credit to Alexander Osterwalder).  Having your whole business on one sheet is tremendously helpful – analogous to the classic Toyota A3 Problem-Solving Report.

In fact, applying all kinds of Lean tools to businesses in their startup stages has become very popular, thanks to the epic best-selling book The Lean Startup, written by Silicon Valley entrepreneur and author Eric Ries.  My ‘pure Lean’ background, along with my own experience working with startups (including one of my own), means that I can help you understand these tools, cut through the buzzwords to figure out how you need to proceed.

I can help you understand these tools, cut through the buzzwords to figure out how you need to proceed.

The Build-Measure-Lean loop, as it is called in the Lean Startup method, helps you organize your data, your assumptions, and what you know about your customers.

Are you measuring the right things?   Do you know the difference between “vanity” metrics and good metrics?
