The Lean Product Playbook by Dan Olsen

  • Jan 12, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

To attend, please register on Eventbrite athttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-lean-product-playbook-by-dan-olsen-tickets-19839869584

Signing at up here on Meetup page alone is not sufficient! Thank you.

Product Austin is excited to have Dan Olsen share the key ideas from his new bestselling book The Lean Product Playbook. Most of us are familiar with Lean Startup and its valuable concepts, such as product-market fit and the build-measure-learn loop. However, many product teams run into challenges when they try to adopt Lean Startup principles because they lack specific guidance on what to do and how to do it. The Lean Product Playbook provides specific, step-by-step guidance on how to apply Lean Startup ideas. In his talk, Dan will describe an actionable model for product-market fit and a 6-step process that explains how to rapidly iterate based on customer feedback, illustrated with real world examples.


Speaker Bio: Dan Olsen is an entrepreneur, consultant, and Lean product expert. At Olsen Solutions, he works with companies to build great products and strong product teams, often as interim VP of Product. His clients include Facebook, Box, Microsoft, Medallia, and One Medical Group. Prior to consulting, Dan worked at Intuit, where he led the Quicken product team. He also led product management at social networking pioneer Friendster and was the cofounder and CEO of TechCrunch award winner YourVersion, a personalized news startup. Dan wrote the bestseller The Lean Product Playbook, published by Wiley, and organizes the Lean Product & Lean UX Silicon Valley Meetup.

      Hey I was curious if you're considering doing an audible version of the lean product playbook?

      That is the top request I get. My publisher Wiley is looking into it as we speak :-)

    Loved the presentation! Enlightening to hear PM methodology from one who has mastered the art!

    This was my first attendance of a Product Austin Meetup. I came in from Houston as the Austin high tech community is thriving. I'll continue to attend and look for more opportunities to social with this group.

    I was unbelievably amazing presentation! A lot of great suggestions that I would immediately apply to my product. The presentation opened to me a few angles that I never looked before.
    Thanks! and since I'm a happy owner of Dan's book, i will start mastering this science.

      Thanks for sharing that link Dan. I've already taken a step forward with the information in that short podcast. The invision website was just what I needed. I'll be reading your book this weekend as well. Thanks for sharing your insight. I'm really looking forward to Tuesday's meetup.
