Building Great Products the Lean Startup Way- with Dan Olsen

This event is co-organized with the Founder School Silicon Valley  

If you just have an idea for a product or are working on an existing product and you want to make it better – this is the place to be!

Building Great Products the Lean Startup Way

By now, pretty much everyone has embraced Lean Startup principles. It's hard to argue with learning from customer feedback and iterating to achieve product-market fit. But how exactly are you supposed to do that? Dan Olsen, a startup veteran and leading PM voice, will discuss how to apply Lean Startup principles as a product person. Dan will be covering best practices in understanding customer needs, prioritization, UX design, user testing, and analytics that can be used to optimize your product.
