The statistics are dismal. Even though magazines and newspapers and blogs and even movies tell stories of successful entrepreneurs, most startups fail. A study conducted by the Harvard Business School shows that 75% of startups fail – 40% will cease operation with investors losing everything, 80% will fail to see their projected return on investment, while 95% will fall short of their financial projections.
Inspired by Eric Ries, author of The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses, Lee explores the foundational tenets of the Lean Startup from the testing perspective. Join us as Lee covers the basis of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP), the nature of a Build-Measure-Learn Loop, a product’s quality attributes, identifying the tester’s Customer, and the definition of a truly meaningful metric.
