Summary

Lean Startup, Lean Six Sigma, Lean Analytics, Lean Enterprise, Kanban, Kaizen, Scrum, Agile Project Management

Maximize value and minimize waste! Create a more effective start-up! Eliminate wasteful practices and improve efficiency!

While the name can be a little misleading, the fact of the matter is the Lean Startup method for businesses is equally useful for start-up companies as it is for Fortune 500 companies. And while it may have roots in the technology sector, it is already being used in virtually every industry across the board. While there is a lot of confusion around it, the Lean Startup system can help companies of all sizes in a lot of different ways. If you are interested in learning more, then Lean Startup: The Complete Step-By-Step Lean Six Sigma Startup Guide is the book you have been waiting for. 

While the term start-up generally has very specific connotations in the business world, in this instance start-up simply means any team that is looking to create a new product or service whose future is not 100 percent certain. Generally speaking, it makes far more sense to classify start-ups as enterprises taking on a challenge amidst uncertainty than by things like market sector, size, or even age of the company. 

With this definition in mind, you will find that there are a few main areas in which a start-up faces the greatest amount of uncertainty, otherwise known as risk, including technical, market, business model, and customer. Inside this book, you will learn how the Lean Startup system has been designed to handle all of them through a targeted approach based on the scientific method.

Inside you will learn:

  • A step-by-step breakdown of the Lean Startup methodology
  • The differences between generative and evaluative research techniques and the best times to use each
  • How to grow out a successful start-up
  • Easy ways to add Six Sigma to the Lead Startup strategy
  • The basics behind both Kaizen and Poka-Yoke
  • And more

How to scientifically create innovation

It's a great book, easy to read and understand.
It present many great ideas on how to innovate and change the way we do our work. What is most amazing of it, is its focus on the scientific method to understand what to create and specially to learn.
The proposal for new metrics to account for learning and accountability, in order to avoid waste is a great idea. A must read if you are looking to became an entrepreneur or if your are looking at a different way how to do things at your company. I hope you have a chance to enjoy it as mush as I did.

Required reading

A number of books recommended The Lean Startup and I finally decided to follow this one..and i am glad that i choose it.

Author provides a map on starting a business with concrete steps and strategies for executing a plan. He gives guidance on how and when to persevere with the initial plan or to "pivot" into another approach based on the results, or lack of results, arising from an entrepreneur's initial plan.

Eye-opening

I have been running a software business for 30 years, and, after reading this book, my eyes were opened to the “system” for starting and growing a business. Author provides the core processes for identifying, developing, and refining products, and the key metrics to use for growing your business. I really appreciated his concepts of validated learning vs. the typical “gut” approach to decision making.

Best for selling Lean Six Sigma to your organizati

This book is an excellent overview of why Lean Six Sigma is relevant to service organizations, but falls short of providing you with the tools needed to implement Lean Six Sigma. If you need to convince upper management that Lean Six Sigma will work in your service organization, this book will help you make the sell using business terminology (e.g. Return on Invested Capital).

So far largely unimpressed

This book does a wonderful job at selling Six Sigma conceptually; however it doesn't really teach you how to implement the strategies involved. To analogize, it's like a vacuum salesman who tells you about all the bells and whistles but then doesn't show you how to use the attachments or how to turn the thing on.

anybody involved in startups

This an exceptional audio book. Well written, well organized, brief, based on experience, good balance of theory and case studies. One of the best management books I have read and probably the best on startups. As a bonus, you get a sense of the lean methodologies as well.
