Learn the Counter-intuitive Approach to Uncovering What Customers Want and Building Products They Can’t Refuse.
You can find more information on the registration pages or you can see more on the 2 Day Entrepreneur focused workshop below:
Most products fail. Not because we fail to build what we set out to build, but because we waste needless time, money, and effort building the wrong product – something nobody wants.
This begs the obvious question: Why does this happen and how do you build what customers want?
Surveys, focus groups, asking customers doesn’t work because customers often don’t know either.
“It is not the customer’s job to know what they want.”
– Steve Jobs
In this 2-day hands-on workshop, you’ll learn exactly how to uncover what customers want and how to systematically turn these insights into products your customer’s cannot refuse.
Built on business modeling, Lean Startup, and jobs-to-be-done thinking, this LEANSTACK workshop promises to raise your odds of success.
Life’s Too Short to Build Something Nobody Wants.
Led by Ash Maurya
Author of two best-selling books (Running Lean and Scaling Lean) and the creator of the highly popular 1-page business plan template: Lean Canvas.
I have spent the last five years teaching and refining this methodology through numerous workshops and bootcamps around the world from Austin to Zurich.
I have worked with companies ranging from 1 person startups to large enterprises such as Intel, Dell, NPR, Amazon, and taught at a number of universities including Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Berkeley, and UT Austin.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is designed for Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs, and other Visionaries charged with bringing bold new ideas to life.
The workshop lays out a framework for taking ideas all the way from concept to scale.
“I’ve read all books about Lean and apply the methodology for myself in all my projects and for my clients from Lean Startup to Business Model Generation to 4 Steps to the Epiphany. Running Lean is for sure the most practical way to apply the methodology. The Workshop reinforce the practice part and gives you all tools to move ahead.”
– Jeremy Goldyn Head of Digital Business, ANAIS IT
For those already familiar with Running Lean (not a prerequisite to attend):
The big epiphany in Running Lean was viewing your business model (not your solution) as the product. This workshop goes further and shares new field-tested techniques on customer interviewing, business modeling, and metrics.
This workshop also covers newer content from my latest book: Scaling Lean. While Running Lean was focused on the entrepreneur to customer conversation, Scaling Lean is focused on the entrepreneur to stakeholder (investor) conversation.
As an attendee, you’ll receive hardcopies of both books.
The workshop is run over 2 full days of interactive sessions and hands-on practice.
