Why Big Companies Need Lean Startup Techniques

By Bruce Robertson | September 29, 2016 | 0 Comments

Smarter with Gartner just posted an article titled Why Big Companies Need Lean Startup Techniques interviewing me and summarizing a recent research report I wrote on how big companies can use “little” methods like Lean Startup.  I hope you find it illuminating.  Getting the business connected with agile and devops will need some work — and one technique is Lean Startup with its focus on MVPs (minimum viable products) that validate business assumptions before full investments are made.  Think like a venture capitalist, even if you are a big company. Case examples include GE and Queensland Gov’t SARA Agency.

Gartner clients can read my full report titled Embrace Bimodal Business Transformation by Adopting Lean Startup Techniques. I’d love to talk about this concept while at Symposium next month, for those that will be there, or in regular inquiry support.

For others, see the article and of course start your research at and with the book The Lean Startup: How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Ries.
