Dan will share product management and Lean Startup advice from his best-selling book The Lean Product Playbook published by Wiley. Dan will explain his Product-Market Pyramid framework, which is the foundation of his 6-step Lean Product Process for achieving product-market fit. The Lean Product Process consists of six steps: 1. Determine your target customer 2. Identify underserved customer needs 3. Define your value proposition 4. Specify your Minimum Viable Product (MVP) feature set 5. Create your MVP prototype 6. Test your MVP with customers Dan will also cover how to use analytics to optimize your product and business. Unlike other books or talks, Dan's advice is very pragmatic and hands-on. You will walk away with tools and techniques you can apply as soon as you finish the workshop. Dan will illustrate his product advice with real-world examples and case studies. Highly interactive group exercises let you build experience applying the concepts firsthand.

Fireside Chat on Behavior Design with Tiny Habits Author BJ Fogg

RSVPing "yes" on Meetup will NOT reserve you a spot at this event. You must purchase your ticket for this event on Eventbrite: https://bj-fogg.eventbrite.com Join us as Stanford Professor BJ Fogg shares advice on behavior design from his bestselling book Tiny Habits. ***The first 50 people to register can score a free copy of the Tiny Habits ebook courtesy of our new Diamond sponsor Heap!*** His Fogg Behavior Model is a powerful framework to help explain human behavior. The easiest way to explain his model is: Behavior (B) happens when Motivation (M), Ability (A), and a Prompt (P) come together at the same moment. B=MAP This solution is deceptively simple. On one hand, you can learn to think about behavior in this way in two minutes. On the other hand, you'll find this model applies to all types of behavior, in all cultures, for people at any age. It's universal. BJ’s book Tiny Habits is based on his 20 years of research and experience personally coaching over 40,000 people. His book cracks the code of habit formation. At the heart of his book is a startling truth: Creating a happier, healthier life can be both easy and fun. Dan Olsen and BJ will have a fireside chat followed by an audience Q&A. Join us for an informative and engaging session! Eventbrite registrants will receive an invitation link via email the morning of the webinar.
