While the evidence-based or lean startup has become the most successful way to start a new business, most textbooks still don’t explain the subject.  The majority of entrepreneurship training now uses this early validation of a product or service by an end user as an accepted practice.  Surprisingly, there is no single resource to use as a reference to understanding the concept. s a result, we have put all the divergent paperback resources into this one book for easier understanding.  After all, lean startup (evidenced-based entrepreneurship) is the most important change to creating a new business in fifty years.

This new book, Understanding Lean Startup, will give a reader all they need to double their chance for success in building a business. Success while keeping them current in entrepreneurship trends.

A six-page, laminated chart, the Lean Entrepreneurship Guide summarizes all 14 methods of evidenced-based, lean startup planning. It features the Steve Blank Lean LaunchPad method but also has two engineering school methods, a complete glossary, a detailed lean course outline, and an explanation of the customer development process.
