"Waste reduction frees up capacity in the resources of the organization. Rather than cash out these freed up resources, this unused capacity needs to be turned into value for customers. Providing more value to customers, leads to growth."

[Article] Pivot Before Product/Market Fit, Optimize After

[Article] Pivot Before Product/Market Fit, Optimize After | Lean Startup | Scoop.it

“Startups that succeed are those that manage to iterate enough times before running out of resources”
-Eric Ries

Even though an iteration (in Lean Startup) is defined as a Build/Measure/Learn experiment, the iteration loop can be applied equally well to optimization experiments as well as pivot experiments which has often led to Lean Startups being mischaracterized as “optimization driven”. Eric wrote a post not too long ago to address this: “Learning is better than optimization” but I feel he didn’t go far enough to draw the distinction between when you should optimize versus pivot.

Unlike Eric, I do feel there is a place for optimization experiments (like the infamous Google41 shades of blue test) – just not before Product/Market fit. Before Product/Market fit, the goal of a startup is finding a repeatable and scalable business model. Unless you are pointed in the right general direction, stepping on the gas here only gets you lost faster. You don’t “really know” if you are pointed in the right direction until Product/Market fit. Once you are, optimization is the right action.

ukituki's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:46 AM

- Good news for anyone who thinks of creating a product: you have much more access to tools, people and markets than your peers had a decade ago. It’s much easier to build an MVP and try to scale it.

- Bad news: on the whole, your job just became more difficult. No one really gives a damn whether your idea is good or bad – what really matters is traction. You are competing with others that have (more) traction, not worse or better ideas.



For those who are eager for more, the full video coverage of the first event can be found here:
