Throwback Thursday: My Posts & Podcasts on #LeanStartup since 2010

I've been sharing highlights and quotes on Twitter and I'll do a post next week about the 2015 event.

If this is all new to you, below are some of my posts (and podcasts) about Eric Ries and the Lean Startup methodology over the last five years or so… click on any of the images for the post.

I hope this gets you up to speed on the Lean Startup methodology… and that it prompts some discussion about the applicability in different settings and the complementary nature with Lean Healthcare and Lean Manufacturing.
