Lean Analytics Book


  1. The Lean Enterprise Experiment Canvas

    This is a guest post from Eric Klaassen of Bloom, a consulting firm that helps companies grow online. We first met Bloom late last year in South Africa, and they’ve been pushing the envelope of applying Lean Startup concepts to big, established companies. The success of the lean start-up methodology is increasingly resonating in large enterprises. […]

  2. Lean Analytics en français !

    We’ve seen copies of the Polish and Korean versions of Lean Analytics in the wild, and spoken with a few of the other translators. We’re excited to see the book reach so many new readers. In the meantime, we’ve been doing a bit of translation of our own! Last week, I spoke at Web A Québec, […]

  3. Lean Analytics for Intrapreneurs

    Later today, I’ll be speaking at the Lean Startup conference in San Francisco. It seems like only yesterday that Ben and I first taught a workshop on Lean Analytics, prior to the book’s launch. Since that time, we’ve visited a dozen countries, spoken with hundreds of founders, and found out that it’s being translated into […]

  4. Free Lean Analytics Workshop Now Available

    Some time ago, Alistair and I did a live workshop in the UK, sponsored by the good folks at Geckoboard. That workshop is now available, for free, on Udemy. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/15KWjil. In the workshop you’ll get 2.5+ hours of content, broken up into 7 sections. We cover all the basics of Lean […]

  5. Freemium and the feature/business tension

    Ben pointed out this week in a great post that the key to success for many businesses is to convince users to adopt a tiny, new, addictive behavior. This is essential for the stickiness phase of a company, because it’s what keeps people coming back, and using your product, from which you can then learn […]

  6. How Lean Analytics changed our beta launch strategy

    This is a guest post from Kyle Racki, co-founder of Proposify. He asked to write a blog post about his experience reading Lean Analytics. We were happy to oblige… I finished reading Lean Analytics a few short weeks ago. The timing was good, because I just happen to be launching a startup, and the advice […]

  7. Great feedback about Lean Analytics

    The positive feedback we’ve gotten about Lean Analytics has been awesome. Not everyone thinks the book is great (that’s fine, Alistair and I have thick skin, and we know it’s not perfect!), but for those of you that have read it and shared your feedback with us, thank you. I wanted to share some of […]

  8. Guest post: Vanity Celebrations

    Brydon Gilliss founded the shared office space ThreeFortyNine in Guelph where he plays with Startupify.Me, Ontario Startup Train and 20 Skaters. A serial entrepreneur and fervent community builder, he’s also busy organizing a train-full of founders for this summer’s International Startup Festival. One of the most often-repeated themes from Lean Analytics has been this: If a metric […]

  9. Lean Analytics and Football

    Although Lean Analytics focuses mostly on tech companies, Alistair and I quickly realized while doing our research that the principles and tactics of Lean Analytics apply to many types of businesses. We managed to highlight a few examples in the book, including Solare, a San Diego-based restaurant that uses two key metrics to guide their […]
