Thanks to Eric Ries for an outstanding webinar today for LEI, “Lessons from Lean Startups.” We had over 1300 registrants from over 60 countries, plus he had the challenge of a very diverse audience (people from startups, big companies, hospitals, and government).
The slides and audio archive will be available soon (by Friday?) on lean.org.
To those who are new to LEI, I wanted to point out a few resources that might be interest for those of you in the software and startup space, although LEI traditionally hasn’t supported that field very well.
Some materials that might be helpful for those working in software or startups:
There are some general Lean books and workbooks that might be applicable:
- Lean Thinking, the seminal work from the late ’90s that defines Lean as a set of five principles (also available from Amazon)
- Lean Solutions, about Lean for service industries, including some help desk and software support examples (amazon)
- Managing to Learn, John Shook’s book about problem solving and management (amazon)
- Coming soon: “Lean IT” workshop with Mike Orzen and Steve Bell
- Lean Problem Solving
- Managing to Learn: The Use of the A3 Management Process
Let us know how LEI can be supportive of your efforts. Thanks to those who attended the webinar.
