Lean problem solving for the Enterprise

  • Jan 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • The Collaborative NYC

Join us for a two hour workshop with Adam Berk on how to apply the Lean Startup Methodology while building for the enterprise. 

We're aiming for a small and engaging group of entrepreneurs building for the enterprise so space is very limited, make sure you reserve a seat.

Adam Berk is a Lean Entrepreneur and a Lean Teacher. 

Adam teaches startup entrepreneurs and enterprise innovators how to apply Lean Startup methodologies in order to minimize waste and reduce risk. Less theory, more interactive. "We (@LEAN) help people design and run experiments, learn #custdev by actually getting out of the building and doing interviews, and pushing people to think problem first solution second."

    This was my first Meetup experience. And did it make an impression! Validated import of lean thinking--incrementally with focus, on what starts and/or stutters your enterprise--to ensure that your model has the proper foundation for the long haul. Look forward to future gatherings.

    I want to add layer of complexity to yesterday's forum. Validation of business model is BIG. I believe 90% of us will have to remodel if we hope to survive the early stage. Make the task harder by realizing that real-time analysis has an expiration date. Learnings we apply today will have to hold up 2 years from now, when it really counts. I believe today's best models have to be more valid tomorrow, then today. If your idea is perfect for today will it be less relevant by the time you want to sell it?

    It was good open forum of discussions with a single, quick exercise to give us a taste for the methodology. A lot of terminology thrown around, so it's really up to the individual to grab what they want out of it, and discover further for themselves from a 150min of Meetup that condensed what normally is a 5 day course that they offer.

      Hope you can join us next time Terri! Perhaps if you can post your email someone can send their notes?

    One of my favorite recent events! My hypothesis is that we will see 5-10 problem / customer hypotheses below:)

    Great job, Adam. Thanks so much. If anyone wants my chat more about their concepts, I'm always up for that.

    We will be selecting 5-7 ideas to spotlight for the evening. If you want yours used as a teaching tool and want to go home with an experiment designed for you, state your problem/customer hypothesis below. "I am solving the problem of x for y customer (in the enterprise space)
