The Leader’s Guide AudioBook Summary
After the publication of his New York Times best-selling book, The Lean Startup, entrepreneur and author Eric Ries traveled the world helping companies of every size adopt the Lean Startup approach in order to become more nimble and experimental no matter what their mission. The Leader’s Guide collects and distills the practical, results-oriented advice Ries has dispensed to entrepreneurs, executives, and leaders at early-stage startups, blue chip corporations, and massive federal government agencies.
The Leader’s Guide is for both those who are new to Lean Startup as well as those who love the methodology in principle, but want to know more about how to put it into practice. Packed with real-world examples, the book sheds light on how innovators are tackling questions like:
- How can I convince my team that testing our early ideas with customers doesn’t mean we should sacrifice quality or forget about our vision?
- How can I convince senior leadership that innovation projects require a different system of accounting?
- How can we turn functional specialists in areas like IT, HR, and finance into allies when it comes to supporting new ideas?
Each chapter focuses on an essential principle of Lean Startup strategy and includes an interview with leaders who have been using the method effectively, like Dustin Moskovitz, CEO and founder of Asana, and Chris Boeckerman, Director of Innovation at Procter & Gamble.
