The Lean Startup Talk From Web 2.0 Expo

One of our most popular talks at the Web 2.0 Expo SF was Eric Ries’ The Lean Startup: a Disciplined Approach to Imagining, Designing, and Building New Products. I’ve embedded an audio version of his slides above. Eric recommends the talk for people who want to:

  • Identify a profitable business model faster and cheaper than your competitors.
  • Continuously discover what customers want to buy before building or making follow-on investments in new features.
  • Ship new software at a dizzying pace: multiple times a day while improving quality and lowering costs.
  • Build a company-wide culture of decision-making based on real facts, not opinions.

Eric has a follow-up to his talk and more thoughts about Lean Startups on his blog.
