Hands-on workshop: Use Lean Startup, Lean Canvas & Story Mapping to validate quickly you’re building the right product.

Too many companies focus on maximizing output and often miss delivering the right features. Studies show over 60% of features built in our industry are rarely or never used. You might deliver a lot of features, but if they are rarely or never used, does it matter how fast you do it?

To deliver the right outcomes, you need to learn your customers needs and validate your assumptions as early as possible. This means getting an early version of your product completed to start testing, validating and improving. We will demonstrate how to combine Lean Startup and User Story Mapping techniques to determine where to start and how to learn early and often.

In this hands-on workshop, your team will start with a partially completed Lean Canvas to flesh out and then define a roadmap by building a User Story Map for your product. We will introduce the concepts of Lean Startup, Minimal Viable Product (MVP), Outcome over Output and Validated Learning. Upon completion, you will learn the following techniques: Lean Canvas and User Story Mapping.
