Getting Started

You Are About To Learn by Doing

There is no better way to learn than by doing. We'll throw plenty of theory and ideas your way, but your success depends on your ability to accomplish what is put in front of you and create your product that generates revenue. Below are the 8 Workshops that make up this Step-by-Step Guide.

We will keep 3 important things in mind as we embark on this journey, introduced and facilitated by leading experts and people who have done it...several times over.

  1. We Will Build: We take lessons learned in agile and lean practices, allowing us to move quickly and with more ease.
  2. We Will Measure: We will build our own successful case study on creating a revenue generating minimum viable product (MVP), yes...but we will measure everything for current and future use.
  3. We Will Learn: Everything from best practices in customer development, business model design, product creation and will learn by doing.
