Learning to Explore
The Lean Innovation course is a fundamental building block to understanding how to minimize risk when developing and launching new products. The course includes a blend of learning to understand customer needs, conduct rapid experiments, leverage evidence for decision-making, and work in an agile fashion.
The prep module helps you prepare for the course with an introduction to Lean Innovation, setting expectations, and a little bit of “homework.”
The week 1 module helps you understand the importance of empathy is, how to develop it for your customers, and how to group your customers into market segments.
Week 2 leverages the empathy work to further understand customer needs, and capture the detail in the Moves the Needle’s Customer-Need Zoom persona tool.
The Bold Solutions module helps you think broadly about products and then zoom in on what a Minimum Viable Product might look like, leveraging the MTN Solution Zoom tool.
Week 4 provides a step-by-step guide for setting up and running your first experiment, including prioritizing assumptions, and developing a testable hypothesis.
Closing the Loop finishes off the rapid experiment loop by documenting experiment results, developing insights, and coming to a decision regarding what to do next.
