Hal Pawluk's insight:

The idea is a breakthrough but the book is mostly filler.  Get the pithier version live from the author’s mouth in these YouTube videos:

Test Your Value Proposition: Supercharge Lean Startup and CustDev
Principles

Test Your Value Proposition: Supercharge Lean Startup and CustDev <br/>Principles | BMC canvas | Scoop.it
In my last post I described a new business tool, the Value Proposition
Designer Canvas

. In this post I outline how you can use the tool to not only design
Value Propositions, but also to test them.
Hal Pawluk's insight:

It’s interesting to watch Alexander Osterwalder trying to backfill the errors and omissions in his BMC since Ash Maurya modified it into the Lean Canvas. He's adding more complexity and confusion where more simplicity and clarity are needed.

 

In working with more than half a dozen startups this year, I found that none were getting much value from the AO BMC.  Using the Lean Canvas, they were able to add focus and gain insights into their businesses.

 

My take on the situation is that the AO BMC is not directed at the launch phase of a startup while the AM Lean Canvas is.  It’s not perfect but is definitely useful to budding entrepreneurs.

Hal Pawluk's insight:

This is the guy who set the seeds for the Lean Startup wave, the Business Model Canvas, etc. 

 

Unfortunately, some of those who followed seem to have dropped the ball when it comes to the crux of launching products and companies:  Steve Blank's "Customer Development." 

 

Ash Maurya does a great job of bringing the customer back into the process with his Lean Canvas (which needed only a little tweak to become my "Launch Canvas" :-)

There is nothing wrong with a startup echo-chamber, just that there is a high probability of one building a narrow focus and eventually, losing sight of the big picture.

Passion is the energy of life!
Doris Palomino's curator insight, August 19, 2013 12:13 PM

I've found this article very interesting because it is not one related to the "to be", like in articles related to emotional intelligence - which I agree is a great topic - but it is focused on the "as is". When leaders show their emotions, you really know where you are and if you can move forward or not.

"Emotional data seems less relevant in the business world where logical data reigns supreme. But it's not only relevant, It's usually the lynchpin to change and growth".

I appreciate the final remarks about how we make difference to "read" the emotions based on the gender. So much to do  and to think about.

Efrain Teran Kaisler's curator insight, August 22, 2013 9:47 PM

La emoción es algo que te llevará donde quieres llegar pero también donde no quieres llegar solo tienes que leer , y aprenderás a ver y ser más emocional pero teniendo control de ellos, es importante ser LIDER pero en control de las emociones, no puedes ser LIDER si no eres dueño y amo de tus emocciones que sabe dirrigirlas. Para LIDERAR  a otros aprende a liderar tus emociones.
