Why the Lean Start-Up Changes Everything - Harvard Business Review

Why the Lean Start-Up Changes Everything - Harvard Business Review | Silicon Island | Scoop.it

But recently an important countervailing force has emerged, one that can make the process of starting a company less risky. It’s a methodology called the “lean start-up,” and it favors experimentation over elaborate planning, customer feedback over intuition, and iterative design over traditional “big design up front” development. Although the methodology is just a few years old, its concepts—such as “minimum viable product” and “pivoting”—have quickly taken root in the start-up world, and business schools have already begun adapting their curricula to teach them.

The Next Generation of Business Leaders

The Next Generation of Business Leaders | Silicon Island | Scoop.it

MBAs–both the degrees and the people who have them–are an obsolete waste of time and money. An irrelevant recipe for failure. At least that’s what all the cool entrepreneurs and venture capitalists are saying. So what’s next? Learning to code and “lean startups.” Accelerators are the new b-school.

 

There’s just one problem though.

 

While creating a product and starting a company have never been easier, building and sustaining a business have never been harder. And lean is not everything. That means business education has never been more important. But first, both b-schools and companies need to learn some new tricks.

Wow...will we ever find the real "balance?"

Hmm, finding the real "balance"?? The illusive goal!
michaelpohl360's curator insight, May 3, 2013 4:03 AM

Though I don't like statements such as one "must" and companies "have to", I believe that the overall view is correct. The world's changing, business environment is changing as well. New leadership skills are required that were not taught in public schools at all but neither at business schools yet.
