While running experiments is a key activity in a Lean Startup, running effective experiments that lead to breakthrough insights is still considered more art than science.
At the earliest stages of the product lifecycle, when we have relatively few customers, we struggle with making sense of seemingly small scale and qualitative customer feedback.
Even though the mechanics of running experiments are quite straightforward, most lean practitioners fail to run effective experiments.
In this webcast talk, Ash Maurya will teach you how to avoid these pitfalls and instead use a systems approach to craft the right next experiment no matter the stage of your product.

What is the Lean Startup?
Too many startups begin with an idea for a product they think people want. They then spend months, sometimes years, perfecting that product without ever showing it, even in a very rudimentary form, to the prospective customer. When customers ultimately communicate, through their indifference, that they don't care about the idea, the startup fails.
The Lean Startup, developed by entrepreneur Eric Ries, is a scientific approach to creating and managing startups, and getting a desired product into customers' hands faster. The methodology relies on controlled innovation, rapid iteration, and validated learning. Through every product iteration, you'll apply the Build-Measure-Learn principle: you turn ideas into products, measure how customers respond, and then decide whether to pivot or persevere.
The Lean Series, curated by Eric Ries and published by O'Reilly Media, is a collection of books written by the best people in the field, on topics that matter. The authors dive down into Lean Startup implementation-level details, providing readers with information they can use immediately.
"The Lean Startup isn't just about how to create a more successful entrepreneurial business. It's about what we can learn from those businesses to improve virtually everything we do. I imagine Lean Startup principles applied to government programs, to healthcare, and to solving the world's great problems. It's ultimately an answer to the question: How can we learn more quickly what works, and discard what doesn't?"
