Book 2: The Lean Startup: How Constant Innovation Creates Radically Successful Businesses by Eric Ries

Eric Ries presents his ideas on how to create a lean startup culture in his book “The Lean Startup”. Inspired by his experiences as a startup advisor, Ries created the lean startup concept. He attributes the failure of his first venture, Catalyst Recruiting, to focusing too much on the product’s launch and not understanding the needs of their customers.

After working for There, Inc., Ries was responsible for the product launch of their failed product. He thinks the company’s strategy was to work backward instead of pushing the technology forward. Instead of focusing on building a product or service, Ries argues that it is better to start by interviewing customers. Doing so helps minimize waste and improves a product’s market fit. Companies that implement Ries’ ideas include Alphabet Energy, Dropbox, and General Electric.
