What Has Eric Ries Learned Since 2011?

What Has Eric Ries Learned Since 2011?

Interview at SXSW Interactive 2015. Interviewer: Ted Greenwald from the Wall Street Journal.

Can you summarize the Lean Startup for those who aren't familiar

  • No rigorous, longitudinal study to determine whether Lean Startup is true or not, but he’s hoping there will be.
  • A startup is just anything new being created under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
  • Use science and not astrology to figure out what’s supposed to happen. That's what is in the book.
  • A pivot is just a change in strategy w/o a change in vision.

Talk at SXSWi by Joel Trammell.

Evolving from founder to great CEO

Joel Trammell, ex-CEO of NetQOS

CEO: command, management, leadership

  • management is power granted by your position
  • leadership is power granted freely because of a follower’s perception of your credibility, competence and caring.
