If you’ve seen multiple products fail in the market, been asked to work on a project that might be doomed, or have a product idea—but aren’t sure how to start to make it a reality—it’s probably time to master Lean, the concept successful startups are nailing and larger organizations are beginning to catch on to. With this training, you’ll first explore how the Lean approach grew from challenges with traditional waterfall and agile methods. Then, you'll discover how to make informed decisions on your own projects by using Build-Measure-Learn cycles. By hearing real world examples that describe how Lean fits into typical work contexts, you’ll learn to identify scenarios that can benefit from this approach and gain the ability to answer questions about the Lean process, so your teams can avoid product failure and realize value sooner.
