Playing Lean

Organisations large and small are using new methods to innovate more quickly. The Lean Startup method helps to improve the odds of success. First described in the best-selling book by Eric Ries, Lean Startup is now a movement that is transforming how new products and services are built. But how do you live this method in your organisation?

You can read about aerodynamics, like you can read the Lean Start-Up books, but just as this won’t teach you how to fly, you wont learn how to live Lean.

You can, however, learn how to fly in a flight simulator. It is a risk free environment where pilots-to-be can make wrong decisions without damaging expensive equipment or causing loss of life.  Playing Lean is a “flight simulator” for innovation and Lean Startup. It’s an enjoyable board game where players are forced to make difficult choices without risking their life savings or the future of their workplaces. The worst case scenario is a humiliating defeat at the hands of your colleagues (quite scary, actually).

The latest edition of the game is the result of a partnership up with Alexander Osterwalder and uses the Value Proposition Canvas – a great tool for understanding the needs of your customers and designing the products and services they want. The concept and ideas of Value Proposition Design underlie this edition of the game.

We can run a 2 hour session teaching Lean in your business. The actual game takes only 90 minutes to play.
