September Meetup: Parentfans.com Case Study - A Lean Roller Coaster Ride.

What happens when you become fearless? When you take 16 years of success building web apps for clients that have reached millions of users and decide the time is right to build your own product?

In this presentation, Pam & Tom Krengel, co-founders of Parentfans.com, will share their lean journey. They'll tell why they built a product for themselves and talk about the dangers of falling in love with your product.

From those ashes they'll share how they changed courses with Lean principles, kept an open perspective by running experiments, and learned that even being wrong can get you closer to the truth.

    A great account on the importance of not falling in love with your product and staying objective even when the results are unexpected. Pam is a wonderful presenter!

    I appreciated Pam's candor in this session and the humility of the presenters in previous sessions. Lean startup is about learning, so hearing about both the successes and mistakes that others have experienced is helpful.

    On the topic of problem interviews and customer development and discovery, I've written a blog entry on some of the top "gotchas" to avoid:

    I will be looking out for those safety bars coming down early. I walked away inspired to do the hard work of talking to customers.
